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.
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.

A digital camera captures high resolution imagery of positioning and deployment. It can also be used to simulate fluoroscopy without the use of an expensive cath lab.
Capture high resolution video
The ViVitro Endovascular Simulator shares many other ViVitro product elements. This provides a low cost upgrade path, re-use of common parts, and ease of use.
A Viscoelastic Impedance Adaptor provides input waveform compliance to create physiological pressures and flows.Features:
The ViVitro Heat Exchanger allows heating of test fluid with minimal interference of the fluid flow.
The Heat Bath Temperature Controller delivers rapid fluid heat-up, optimized for the ViVitro Endovascular Simulator and Pulse Duplicator. These heated circulating baths feature a long life, high-wattage heater.
The ViViFlow Electromagnetic flow meter accurately measures flow for testing, research and laboratory applications. Platform independent, the flow meter can be used separately, or with the ViVitro Pulse Duplicator or Endovascular Simulator. It is compatible with the ViVitro I/O module and Data Acquisition System.
The Endovascular Simulator is compatible with the following ViVitro products:
