In order to understand the compliance properties of blood vessels.

We fabricated a compliant tube using PDMS material and designed an oscillation drive to simulate the blood flow. With a high-speed camera and pressure sensors mounted on both sides of the compliant tube, we can see in real time how the shape of the compliant tube responds to the pressure on both sides.
