A phantom simulating the exact flow-velocity pulse shape within the common carotid artery is proposed. Beside the exact representation of the flow profile attention is paid on keeping the system flexible, simple and inexpensive. Parameters of the used components are figured out in order to optimize and manipulate the final pulsatile flow.
