Join us for the 20th anniversary of IMSH!  

The International Meeting on Simulation in Healthcare (IMSH) is a scientific conference that explores the latest innovations and best practices in healthcare simulation. IMSH provides the tools and resources healthcare professionals need to advance their skills, impact change in delivery systems and practice, and, ultimately, to improve patient safety.

See what products we'll be highlighting at the event below.


VIST® Lab with VIST® G5

The Mentice VIST® Lab is a stationary simulation solution combining realism, ergonomics, and flexibility. Mimicking a catheterization lab environment with a full body mannequin, one 4K-UHD screen (fluoro, cine, and vitals) and one HD touch screen (controls), the VIST® Lab is the optimal choice for realistic workflow and team training.

In combination with one or two VIST® G5 systems, the VIST® Lab provides the ultimate flexibility allowing the system to be used either in a stationary setup or be converted into fully functional portable VIST® G5 systems. In addition, the VIST® Lab supports treatment through left and right femoral, radial, and subclavian approaches.

The Mentice VIST® G5 is the latest generation of Mentice endovascular simulators, bringing ease-of-use and simulation realism to the next level. The modules include a wide variety of training scenarios to challenge technical skills, clinical decision-making abilities, and procedural proficiency.

Available training software includes 20+ procedures and 400+ cases across 6 disciplines - from head to toe:

  • Cardiology
  • Electrophysiology
  • Neuroradiology
  • Radiology
  • Trauma
  • Vascular

All training software include the Mentice Radiation Safety module - designed for physicians, nurses, and technicians who use interventional fluoroscopy equipment. Key benefits include:

  • ALARA training for all cath lab personnel
  • Live and dynamic dose readings
  • Dose heatmaps to illustrate dose to patient and operator


See first hand why our new transesophageal echocardiography simulator is being called the most sophisticated real-time ultrasound simulator in the market.

Key Benefits:

  • Experience the latest echo techniques available within the only simulation offering real-time and synchronized 2D echo, 3D echo, and multiplanar reconstruction (MPR)
  • Perfect teamwork - the only platform offering intraoperative TEE with real-time device manipulation across all modalities (in combination with a VIST® G5)
  • Curriculum-based self-learning under expert guidance
  • Portable - robust and lightweight, making it suitable for hand luggage
  • Available training software includes ASD/PFO, LAAO, and Transseptal Puncture
Highly realistic images - VIST One TEE


VIST® Handle 1

The Mentice VIST® Handle 1 enables you to train the deployment of stent grafts and heart valves.

Key Benefits:

  • Developed using the most common features of market-leading delivery systems
  • High-quality and durable enough to be used time and time again
  • Easy to use through built-in sensors and wireless functionality
  • Use with Mentice TAVI training software for flexion of the delivery system and deployment of heart valves
  • Use with Mentice EVAR training software for deployment of main and leg grafts
  • Use with Mentice TEVAR training software for deployment of stent grafts

Learning Management

As part of our drive for improving the effectiveness of endovascular training, we have updated several training software with benchmarking support - enabling you to create proficiency-based training and assessment programs.

Key Benefits:

  • Customize exercises
  • Build training programs with progressing levels of difficulty
  • Define and set your own quality criteria
  • Compare your performance to preset benchmarks
  • Visualize your progression with graphs
