    I need to make a simple model of human hand with a vein that has the same pressure of a real vein 10 to 30 mmHg ,basically I want to use it with my iv infusion pump design ,please could you tell me what is the best way to do that?

    What has your reading and research found so far?

    I can think of several things that I would want to include in such a model. What things are you thinking of including so far?

    i am thinking of creating a pressure by circulating a fluid in a closed loop tubing using a fluid pump ,but I am not sure what type of pump should I use ,also I want a tubing that is elastic enough so that a needle can be inserted to it ! ,is there any better idea ?
