Most of these companies provide body parts for non-transplant purposes including research and medical training. There is usually no expense to the family, even for out-of-state shipping. The consent form should be explicit that the body will be surgically divided. Some body parts may be shipped outside the U.S. Most of these deal with both nonprofit and for-profit entities. Any unused or already-used body parts will be cremated and returned to the family when so requested although some of the end users dispose of tissue as medical waste.
