The LV+ phantom has a unique design incorporating a contractile left ventricle (LV) with mitral and aortic valves that mimic realistic valve motion patterns. The phantom lets the user control a wide variety of parameters to simulate different heart rates, LV ejection fractions, contractile patterns and mitral valve pathologies. A programmable micro-controller controls the motion of six pneumatic actuation cylinders and a system of flow control valves.
