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 pulsatile pump, 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.
The ViVitro Endovascular Simulator is cited in numerous research studies throughout the world. Visit our Citation Database for the current list of applications and articles.

The Endovascular Simulator provides functional design testing for:
Aorta Model with Femoral Access
Lower Leg Arterial Model
Neuro Aneurysm Model
A compliance assembly provides adjustable air volume to allow system tuning for a wide range of pressure conditions.
Optional manifold for joining return flow paths
Red lines indicate inlets, and outlet/return flow
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 Ex Vivo Simulator uses a ViVitro Labs SuperPump pulsatile pump to generate physiological flows in an excised heart for bench top testing. The system can model either the left or right heart, or two systems can be combined to generate a four chamber model.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.
