Complex interventional procedures such as TAVI, EVAR and TEVAR use advanced delivery systems for the deployment of sophisticated medical devices. With such complex procedures comes the need for advanced simulation training to become familiar with handle functionality,
movements and rotations.

The Mentice VIST® Handle 1, combined with our optimized training software for TAVI, EVAR and TEVAR, enables you to train the deployment of stent grafts and heart valves. Our solution provides you with a realistic, hands-on simulated environment in which skills can be gained and honed—with the aim of taking the training away from the patient into a safe environment.

We have taken the most common key features of numerous delivery systems to bring you a generic device which is ergonomic, durable and can be used time and time again—providing you with an immersive training experience. With built-in sensors, the VIST Handle 1 comes with wireless functionality to provide you with the expected look and feel of a real delivery system.
