Simulated Use Testing Under Pulsatile Flow
Devices can be subjected to various physiological pulsatile flows and pressures.
Our lab can control cardiac flow and pressure experienced by a variety of endovascular medical devices and delivery systems. Anatomical models, including abnormalities or custom patient-specific models can be used. Ensure that devices can be delivered and deployed in a safe, consistent and accurate manner within the intended implant site and with intended use conditions.
Our lab team has used the Endovascular Simulator to perform tests including the following applications:
Using the ViVitro Endovascular Simulator, physiological pulsatile flows and pressures can be re-created to test many types of cardiovascular devices and any portion of the cardiovascular system. Our vascular flow platform brings physiological pulsatility to anatomical models.
Any cardiac device. Example tests include:
-Implantable pressure measurement verification
-Testing for contamination during bolus delivery of multi-lumen catheter under pulsatile flow
