Abstract

The invention relates to an artificial skin (10, 12, 14), and relates to a patient simulator (100) comprising the artificial skin. The artificial skin is a layered structure comprising a translucent cover layer (20) configured for imitating human or animal skin, and comprising a light emitting layer (30, 32, 34) being configured for emitting light from a surface of the light emitting layer through the translucent cover layer for adapting the color of the artificial skin into a predefined color of the artificial skin, a lateral dimension of the light emitting layer being configured to closely imitate a real-life coloring of the artificial skin. The light emitting layer may, for example, extend substantially parallel to at least a part of the translucent cover layer for substantially following an outer topography of the artificial skin. The light emitting layer may also comprises a lateral shape (L, Lx, Ly) substantially corresponding to a shape of an area of the human or animal skin being changeable to the predefined color.

The effect of the artificial skin according to the invention is that a real-life coloring effect is achieved in the artificial skin which provides excellent training quality.
