AorTech to work on synthetic
Surrey-based medical device company AorTech has signed a development agreement with a Scottish business to work on its synthetic heart valve project.
The project with VFT involves detailed computational modelling and analysis of AorTech’s heart valve, leading to further design optimisation, manufacturing and testing.
The aim is to prepare a detailed data pack to justify first “in man” testing of the technology.
Bill Brown, chairman of AorTech, said: “In partnering with the team at VFT, AorTech now has access to Europe’s leading experts in the combined field of medical imaging, guided finite element analysis and computational fluid dynamics.
“Combining the design history with this ground breaking imaging analysis should much improve the quality of the product design, reliability and performance.”
