Vascular access to the heart

We're looking back at a collaboration project that ended in the fall of last year: the development of a smart steerable catheter by Eindhoven Medical Robotics. LifeTec Group joined this MIT project to improve on vascular access to the heart in the Cardiac BioSimulator platform so that valuable information could be gained on the navigation capabilities of the novel catheter design in a very early phase.

CardiacBooster collaboration project

We have been awarded an MIT grant by the Dutch Government for a collaborative research project with Cardiac Booster! Within this project, LifeTec Group will work on the next generation of pulse duplicator systems that respond to changes in hemodynamic loading. Cardiac Booster is developing a heart assist device, and together we can use both new technologies in device R&D as well as in clinical training on the use of such therapies.

Does valve size matter?

We had a great day doing valve surgery in our lab! A team from Leiden University Medical Center joined us to try and implant valves of different size into real hearts, and subsequently investigate the hemodynamic performance of these implantations on our Cardiac BioSimulator platforms!
