Medical Equipment – The life of a member of the Alliance is a necessarily dangerous one. Fighting the tyranny of the Galactic Empire, with its powerful armed forces and dangerous web of intelligence agents, informants, and spies, can have deadly consequences for even the most vigilant Rebel operative. Good and immediate medical care is key to any operation, whether in the form of a simple medpac, a total-immersion bacta tank, or a well-equipped medical frigate. The availability of such care, or lack thereof, has turned the tide of more than one Rebel operation.
From Age of Rebellion
Synthskin and synthflesh are two versions of a synthetic, skin-like covering used in medicine and the production of cybernetic limbs. Sold as small patches, full sheets, or a thick gel, these products are used to heal abrasions, cuts, and other minor wounds, as well as for skin grafts and cosmetic surgeries. Synthskin is the more common type, and is used more often in emergency medical or surgical applications; synthflesh is typically used to cover mechanical items, such as cybernetic limbs or even whole droids, to disguise their artificial nature. Both varieties are produced by the major medical technology and pharmaceutical companies in the galaxy (although BioTech is by far the leader in the field) and both are designed to integrate seamlessly with the integumentary systems of nearly every sentient species in the galaxy
From Edge of the Empire
These artificial flesh coatings are used both to treat injuries and to coat cybernetic limbs. Synthskin is more commonly used to bond with real tissue, usually to aid in recovery, while synthflesh is more often used to cover mechanical devices to make them appear organic; these can include entire droids when a realistic appearance is desired. As with stimpacks, synthskin is made by countless companies, although BioTech Industries is a leading manufacturer in the field.
Synthskin applications can be used as first aid to treat cuts and bruises. Synthskin applications are one-use items.
