Since 2006, the GMedTech biomedical research centre in the Galway Mayo Institute of Technology (GMIT) in the west of Ireland has developed capabilities for generating physiological type flow conditions through realistic vascular models based on medical images. The GMedTech centre has designed and developed a number of fully controlled and instrumented synchronised experimental test systems for testing in the abdominal aorta, coronary, venous and intracranial vessels with and without associated disease types. The experimental testing was performed by PhD candidate Paul Fahy and his supervisors Dr. Liam Morris and Dr. Patrick Delassus.
