Venair provided mold building and casting with silicone for physical model of the left ventricle
Venair supports advanced science and technology once again, this time through a new collaboration with Cardiovascular Fluid Mechanics Laboratory (CFM Lab) at Georgia Institute of Technology (Atlanta, Georgia, USA), one of the worldâ€™s leading research universities. The CFM Lab focuses on understanding complex cardiac problems with the use of fundamental engineering principles.
The research focuses on generating an understanding of the mechanics of the human heartâ€™s left ventricle (both healthy and diseased). Venairâ€™s objective is to manufacture state of the artmolds and silicone-based models of a physiological left ventricle for a broad spectrum of the project.
This left ventricle model provides means for a physical understanding of structural heart disease and valvular/pathological conditions affecting cardiac function in order to identify novel diagnostic indices and potential target variables to monitor before, during, and after clinical treatment.
The results of this ongoing investigation will be reported in the following months.
