ASIST™ is a sophisticated specialty system specifically designed for the replication of large vessel occlusions, enabling easy and predictable stroke replication.

  1. ASIST™ Neurovascular Unit – with patient-specific anatomies
  2. Thrombus Simulant – packaged in ready-for-use 1cc syringes
  3. Delivery Kit – for predictable thrombus deployment Users can now test and train various thrombectomy techniques and devices reliably and conveniently.

CONVENIENT. RELIABLE. PREDICTABLE.

ASIST™ is quickly set up with the delivery kit
and our nonbiological, realistic clot.
• Quick procedure set-up • Easy maintenance • Realistic feedback

REALITY EMPOWERED CLOT

Our pre-filled thrombus syringes deliver properties matched to human clot,
bringing reliable and predictable realism to replicated stroke procedures.

REALISTIC PROCEDURES 

Our pre-filled thrombus syringes deliver properties matched to human clot, bringing reliable and predictable realism to replicated stroke procedures.

“The ASIST™ provides physicians and researchers an efficient, reproducible, and extraordinarily realistic replication of an anterior circulation large vessel occlusion. This model provides an optimal platform for teaching and training, the development and comparison of different thrombectomy techniques as well as the assessment and development of novel devices.”
