The VI Box – Pulsatile Wet Lab Box

$850.00

The New VI Box is the most innovative, affordable, portable, easy to use, and versatile wet lab box on the market.  When used with the LifeLike Embedded Femoral Arteries, Embedded Veins or Embedded Carotid Arteries Pad, you can now train on ultrasound, dissection, and vessel exposure. Also train any vascular surgical skill, such as end-to-end or end-to-side anastomosis with a saphenous vein, femoral endarterectomy, carotid endarterectomy and repair, as well as femoral cannulation while using the pump to check for the quality of the repair. Repair the surrounding tissue and skin layer for a complete training experience.

It’s lightweight and battery charge attributes allows for easy training at the hospital while on call, at home, at a conference or at the Surgical Simulation Centre. The pulsatile flow pump (used for arteries) and continuous flow pump (used for veins) will increase the fidelity of the training and help evaluate the quality of the anastomosis and procedure.

The VI Box can be used with the LifeLike Embedded Veins, Embedded Femoral Arteries or Embedded Carotid Arteries Pad, or with any of the LifeLike or silicone Femoral or Carotid Arteries of your choice.
