The ViVitro Endovascular Simulator creates physiological pulsatile flow and pressures for testing many types of cardiovascular devices and can be used for any portion of the cardiovascular system.

Our vascular flow platform brings physiological pulsatility to anatomical models for research and development. The simulator can easily be reconfigured for bench top, cath lab or portable cart installation.

The Endovascular Simulator addresses requirements of ISO 5840, ISO 25539, and ISO 7198 standards as they include simulated use guidelines.

Control a live cardiac flow in a standalone configuration. Using the ViVitro SuperPump, the Endovascular Simulator’s programmable waveform system delivers physiological pulsatile flow. Test a variety of endovascular medical devices and delivery systems by adding anatomical models, including abnormalities or custom patient-specific models.

Simulated-use testing

Use the ViVitro Endovascular Simulator to demonstrate that devices can be delivered and deployed in a safe, consistent and accurate manner within the intended implant site and with intended use conditions.

Endovascular simulation training

The Endovascular Simulator offers a clinically relevant practice model for physicians. Visible anatomy provides feedback while navigating anatomical structures and abnormalities that may be encountered during actual procedures.

Physicians sharpen their skills and increase their confidence in a safe and realistically simulated environment. Learning a delivery system while experiencing physiological pulsatile flow and pressures encountered when maneuvering stents, catheters, wires, balloons, heart valves and other endovascular devices instills invaluable feedback.
