VIST® TEE Trainer is a portable transesophageal echocardiography simulator, combining realism and flexibility. It's the optimal solution to acquire fundamental TEE skills through self-learning and expert guidance.
Designed to expose echocardiographers to rare pathologies and challenging cases - supporting them to become confident and independent in examining conscious patients under stressful circumstances. Moreover, interventional teams can train to effectively communicate and to promptly establish and interpret echo-images - limiting procedure time, allowing for optimal device deployment, and reducing readmissions.
Based on real patients' anatomies, it offers the most sophisticated real-time ultrasound simulation in the market. Users can get hands-on practice and test their TEE skills in obtaining and interpreting views.

Imaging of the right heart today is trial and error… This is where the new tricuspid valve update of the VIST TEE Trainer directly addresses this need. The update provides 5 new cases from basic to advanced to train the skills needed to cover these challenges. Even rather complex situations including acoustic shadowing from peacemaker leads can be simulated and an incredible new valve realism algorithm is implemented. The TEE simulator does an outstanding job with the visualization of the probe, and the heart model. The images are simulated, however they are generated in a similar way to ultrasound, and this is the point when it feels like real TEE.
* Perfect interdisciplinary teamwork – the only platform offering intraoperative TEE with real-time manipulation across all modalities (in combination with the VIST® Ultrasound Add-on and a VIST® simulator).
