Thiel Embalming.

This is a relatively new procedure that was first developed in Austria in the 1990s, but only introduced and properly used in the UK in 2009. It is a special soft fix of cadavers that is allowing doctors, students and technicians alike to train on more lifelike donors.

Formalin fixed bodies lose their colour and flexibility, which means a less than lifelike experience before shifting this data to a living patient. Thiel fixing allows limbs to move more freely, ligaments and tissues to be separated much better. Also the interior and exterior colour are flush for better identification and overall appeal.

These cadavers can be kept at room temperature and used as training modules for up to 3 years. Then after such time they are cremated or returned to the family for burial if they wish.

Scientists have also trialed reviving formalin fixed samples by immersing them in the Thiel bath and have noted some positive changes. This may mean being able to further explore specimens that could have been holding secrets for decades.
