The Cybram 001 Cybernetic Brain Artery Model, which simulates cerebral blood vessel functioning to allow doctors to develop brain-operation skills, has been developed by researchers at Fuyo Corporation and the Saitama Medical University International Medical Center in Japan.
The life-size plastic body contains a blood vessel system that runs from the groin to the cerebral artery, and a circulation pump controlled by information from a blood-pressure sensor to realistically simulate blood flow and pressure in the body.
The transparent Cybram 001 body can also be used in university lectures and for testing equipment, and in conjunction with angiography equipment on a radiographic table.
