Living Heart Human Model: Pacemaker Lead Insertion And Cardiac Cycle Simulation Tech Brief

Source: Dassault Systemes Americas

The SIMULIA Living Heart Human Model provides a unique testing environment where a pacemaker lead can be virtually inserted and mechanically deformed during the cardiac cycle. Once the mechanical deformation results are obtained, the long-term durability of the implant can be assessed. The virtual nature of the test provides a physiologically accurate methodology to test new and existing devices without exposing patients to un-necessary risk.
