Project Title
VAD Training Simulation
Design Challenge
Doctors at Texas Children's Hospital in Houston currently offer multiple weekly trainings in handling the complications that arise in patients with LVADs. Currently doctors do not have a hands on device that they can use to practice on during these trainings. Our project will focus on developing a training simulator made up of hardware and software components that will allow doctors to get hands on training in LVAD complication diagnosis.
