Introduction of Each Specification
This product won the 2013 Good Design Award.
The Cardio Simulator Project is an R&D project to develop 3D heart models using CT data
for use in medical and educational institutions.
The project has been praised for its high technical skill and impact
and took the BEST 100 award at the 2013 Good Design Awards.
Pursuing Two Areas of Realism:
Reproducing Both the Heart and its Pulsation Function
Reproducing the pulsation of the heart
makes it possible to carry out training for off-pump coronary artery anastomosis.
This device increases the otherwise limited opportunities for surgical training,
leading to improvements among beginning doctors.
