1540x800 White Paper Priming The Pump

Applying CFD and optimization in blood pump development

May 8, 2022
The use of computer-aided engineering (CAE) significantly reduces workload while ensuring reliability and improving medical device designs, an area where the development span is long and the regulatory approval process is strict.

A ventricular assist device (VAD) is a mechanical pump used to increase blood flow to offset a malfunctioning ventricle in the heart and take over the function of a failing heart. During the VAD development process, computational modeling is an efficient tool for finding the best design for the blood pump, the key component, even before building a prototype.
