Medical Simulators - ANGIO Mentor™

Supplier: CR Kennedy & Company

Where virtual reality improves real life.


Simbionix ANGIO Mentor™ is a multidisciplinary simulator that provides hands-on practice, in an extensive and complete simulated environment of interventional endovascular procedures.

Interventional cardiologists, interventional radiologist and vascular surgeons can use it to perform complete procedures, as well as acquiring basic skills.

Full interventional experience

Using the ANGIO Mentor™ you will be able to perform a diagnostic angiogram by inserting a catheter into an artery under fluoroscopic guidance, with subsequent injection of contrast material and imaging of the entire vascular distribution.

The look and feel of the system is so real, you will quickly feel as if you are in an actual procedure.

You can also assess the significance of vascular occlusive diseases as well as the outcome of an interventional procedure, by monitoring intra-arterial pressure gradients.

Perform full Angioplasty balloon dilation procedures, or similar procedures using a stent or other interventional devices, and treat at the appropriate sites. Monitor patient’s vital signs, perform full neurological examination, and administer drugs accordingly, all in a controlled and safe environment.

Simulation Features

The ANGIO Mentor™ is designed to enhance skills across the range of invasive percutaneous cardio/endovascular techniques, including diagnostic angiography, angioplasty intervention, administering thrombolytic agents, and capabilities for recognition and management of developing complications.

The use of the ANGIO Mentor™ simulator by interventional cardiologists and radiologists results in a higher level of professional skills, allowing them to provide patients with better care.

Angiography suite or cath lab simulation

The ANGIO Mentor™ is designed to improve technical and operational skills while using X-rays and other cath lab equipment, by means of the following:

  • Simulation and display of real time fluoroscopic images and C-arm operation, providing both still frames and “road map” images
  • Cineangiographic and digital subtraction angiography
  • Image archive management, an image reviewing facility that allows reviewing all archived images

Realistic simulation of a complete set of interventional instruments

The system comprises a high-end haptic mechanism, providing a realistic simulation of guidewires, balloons, stents and other interventional devices.

Library of Modules

The system contains a virtual patient library, based on realistic 3D anatomies, created from CT/MRI images of real patients. Each patient case has its own unique anatomy and pathologies.

Enhance hemodynamic monitoring

The ANGIO Mentor™ is designed to improve hemodynamic monitoring skills and complication management capabilities.

Vital signs simulation includes heart rate, systolic/diastolic blood pressure, ECG leads, aortic pressure and saturation monitoring, accurately reflecting the outcomes of interventional procedures as well as intra-procedural complications.

Aiming at enhancing medical decision-making, improving medical training, and expanding physiological and medical knowledge, the system features a full assortment of drugs, inherent in the procedure performance. It also enables a neurological examination of a virtual patient.

Drug administration and serious adverse effects are accurately reflected in the angiographic images, patient monitoring, and neurological status.
