Available materials of construction include SynTissue synthetic human cardiac tissue, flexible organosilicate composite, or rigid acrylic composite. Valve external diameter should be selected to match the internal diameter of the installation site (vascular model, flow loop, porcine heart etc). Internal (flow path) diameter will generally be 85-90% of the external diameter.
If you require additional features, different dimensions (both length diameter and width diameter), alternate materials, or other pathologies please call and ask to speak to one of our technical sales representatives.
Basic model construction employs our patented SynTissue brand synthetic human tissues. These materials are experimentally designed on the basis of physical tests performed on actual living tissue, and each tissue is validated (tensile modulus, abrasion resistance, penetration force, coefficient of friction, thermal conductivity, dielectric constant, etc) under the same physical conditions as the live tissue it is designed to simulate. The resulting synthetic tissue responds to stimulus much like the real living tissue.
SynTissue synthetic human tissues made from salt, water, and fiber – which feature the world’s most realistic tactility.
All of our products are made in the USA.
