Endovascular Procedure Simulator in a Suitcase to Aid Medical Device Engineers

Cathi cath lab procedures simulator System in a Suitecase

February 24, 2021 – German-based endovascular simulator specialist Cathi has launched a highly portable System in a Suitcase specifically designed for use by engineers in both medical technology companies as a tool for aiding interventional device product design. The procedural simulation system facilitates the visualization and extrapolation of ideas, as well as providing ease of operation and a positive user experience.

Cathi cath lab procedures simulator System in a SuitecaseSpecifically, Cathi’s System in a Suitcase can encourage creativity in product design by helping to visualize the device in a simulated cath lab environment. It also can assist in developing product properties such as efficacy, patient safety and ease of operation. Product design and function is aided by the system’s ease of use. Once the suitcase has arrived on site it takes just a few minutes to set up and get operational. When the product has been developed in virtual form, it can become the basis of an instructional and educational campaign, again driven by Cathi’s system.

At the heart of the System in a Suitcase is the laptop-sized Cathis Smart. Although highly portable, its compact dimensions do not mean that compromises have been made on either applications or features. It can be completely customized to satisfy individual customer needs, such as being set up with specific devices or instruments, along with associated special features. 

Cathi cath lab procedures simulator System in a SuitecaseCathis simulators provide a high degree of user flexibility. Rather than having to run through the entire procedure every time they want to reach a particular section, operators can jump directly to specific steps, which is ideal for educational purposes.

The Cathis Smart simulator is supported by a range of hardware including a control unit, notebook and foot pedal. All this is contained in a single suitcase.
