This model is a reproduction of decubitus (a bedsore) on the sacral region shown in separate stages (Stage I to IV). It can be fitted to a human or a training model. Six layers of skin are used to represent Stage I to IV to enable understanding of the classification of each stage. The skin is mode of ultra realistic silicone rubber for an appearance and texture that is similar to that of the human body. All six skins can be layered on together and peeled off one by one to show the progression of decubitus at a glance. Ointment can be applied and surgical treatment can be performed (do not apply ointment to the fitting belt as the surface paint may peel off).
