Shunt Arm Simulator
The LifeLike Shunt Arm Simulator was designed by a senior vascular surgeon in Spain who has been involved in vascular simulation training for over 10 years with the SimuVasc organization in Europe.
The LifeLike Shunt Arm Simulator consists of a male size arm with a set of silicone arteries and veins. The trainee can be trained on basic vein to artery or artery to artery with a vein anastomosis skills practiced in the placement of shunt and AV fistulas. Coupled with the available pulsatile pump to add flow through the simulator, the LifeLike Shunt Arm provides a very realistic training scenario.
The LifeLike Shunt Arm Simulator includes a male size arm, reusable skin, and a set of arteries and veins. The Arm is available with or without pulsatile pump to check the quality of the repair.
