We design and make educational tools for medical students, teaching hospitals and multinational medical device manufacturers.
“I have met the Founder and the President of Seal, Mr Adam Hager in Sweden and he has also visited WHO Geneva and given a presentation in our department and in some other departments. All who have seen the materials that he has produced are very impressed and believe strongly that they will be very useful in the training of health professionals in Africa as they are already in Sweden.”

As a national secretary for the subcommittee for Basic Surgical Skills I did recommend all our national faculties to use the line of the products from
SEAL AB for the practice of our courses. At the present time, all five national faculties use the products.

"When our medical education company was looking for equipment to teach student doctors, nurse practitioners, and physician assistants how to suture, we looked everywhere. We tried over a dozen different products and found the blend of quality, accessibility, and affordability hard to manage.
We found our perfect match with Seal. Their products are cost-effective, dynamic in their setup, and give us great flexibility in how we can keep our students excited and engaged. I would highly recommend anyone looking for a readily adaptable trainer to consider this excellent product."

"The undersigned has had the opportunity to use and to test various surgery simulation materials produced by SEAL AB Ltd in a number of low-income countries during a couple of years. They are simple to use and in my view appropriately designed for use among both undergraduate medical students and other staff under training to become surgically competent mid-level providers of life-saving skills."

"By using these tools for education a more modern, high quality and patient-safe way of performing surgical operations is achieved. Midwives who are appropriately trained are more likely to provide a consistent, high standard of perineal repair.
I consider this training material innovative and very useful."

“We have been very happy with the quality and the versatility of the trainer, it has been a real advantage that we can cover basically all training needs with this trainer and the equipment that comes with it. In addition to the quality of the product, I have been very satisfied with the service we have received from Seal.”

"I have used the SEAL boards as part of Ethicon Ltd. (Johnson & Johnson) Profession Education (Prof Ed) Courses to veterinary surgeons.
I have been highly impressed with the boards; they are easy to set up and allow for very realistic suturing of the linea alba, subcutaneous tissues and skin of the dog and cat. In fact, I was so impressed with the boards, especially when compared with the competition products, that I now request their use at all Ethicon’s Prof Ed Courses at which I am asked to lecture."

"The products are versatile in their ability to simulate different surgical scenarios and have allowed Ross SIG members to practice many different suturing techniques..
..The surgical skills trainer was very adaptable to the rhomboid flap closure lab and we found this technique to be relevant as it can be used in the repair of facial defects such as a cleft lip and palate.
The undersigned strongly recommends this line of products to both students and physicians seeking to develop their surgical skills."
"Being located on the Caribbean island of Dominica can often make it difficult to obtain surgical supplies in a timely manner, but we were extremely impressed with the responsiveness of Seal AB and their ability to streamline the ordering and shipping process."

When I founded Seal, it was on the idea that as a designer of educational tools I could actually do something to support the ongoing initiatives for maternal and newborn health and survival.
I studied courses in basic surgical skills and also learned about ways in which non-physician clinicians, in some parts of the world, could become an acknowledged and insured part of the healthcare system by adding a period of faculty based training to their often vast real-life experience.
My belief was continuously reinforced as I was guided by a Professor of Global Health at Karolinska Institute here in Stockholm, and by a Leader at the Department of Reproductive Health and Research at the World Health Organization in Geneva. With their help I could also get my designs field-tested.
These generous and open-minded people opened doors to a wonderful community of everyday problem-solving midwives, nurses and surgeons. I found that an educational tool in itself can become a bridge between people of various cultures and how an international standard for the materials used enabled remote and online workshops with comparable results.
I realized, that by designing learning tools that not only met the standards and requirements of international basic surgical skills courses, such as the ones conducted in my hometown, but by also incorporating versatility, durability and cost-efficiency to fit the most challenging settings Seal could contribute to a safer delivery of surgical care and increase quality of life for people anywhere in the world.
Today, I welcome you to let me know where we can introduce and evolve Seal to continue on this path forward. It would be awesome if you mention seal.se on related posts so colleagues and friends around the world can be inspired, learn and share.
