The ViVitro Labs Endovascular  Simulator provides physiological pulsatile flow and pressures mimicking endovascular procedures in a clinically relevant environment. It is designed for simulated-use testing and endovascular simulation training of endovascular devices. ISO 5840, ISO 25539, and ISO 7198 standards include simulated use guidelines. The Endovascular Simulator provides functional design testing for:

  • stents
  • stent grafts
  • balloons
  • wires
  • coils
  • filters
  • transcatheter heart valves

 

The Pulse Duplicator simulates the function of the heart (left or right) by generating pulsatile flow through prosthetic heart valves placed in the Model Left Heart. Powered by the ViVitro SuperPump, it is composed of the Model Left Heart, SuperPump, Flow Measuring System and ViViTest data acquisition system. The components work together to assess the performance of prosthetic heart valves under simulated cardiac conditions. The Pulse Duplicator System is used by the US Food and Drug Administration and is recognised by regulatory bodies worldwide including TÜV, BSI and the Chinese SFDA.

 

The ViVitro SuperPump is a digitally controlled hydraulic piston pulsatile pump that creates physiological cardiac flows. Unsurpassed in reliability, functionality, and versatility, the AR Series digital technology provides maximum control with precision accuracy and works with ViVitro or independently produced accessories.

The SuperPump provides maximum operator control with precision accuracy. The pump can be controlled by preconfigured waveforms or by customizable ViViTest software input.

Features:

  • Provides controlled pulsatile flow
  • Digital motor with high torque to inertia ratio provides smooth and reliable functionality
  • Controller offers variable amplitude and monitors position and velocity
  • Made with materials that are chemically compatible with most sterilization and testing solutions
  • Arrhythmia and wave train function
  • Piston-in-cylinder pump head design
  • Proven history of reliability
