The working group Experimental Cardiovascular Modelling ECM uses experimental simulation as a tool to support the development and optimization of blood pumps, heart valve prostheses and artificial lungs.

The tasks are divided into the fields of Mock Circulatory Loops MC, for example the CVE-Loop, flow visualization using Particle Image Velocimetry, in short: PIV, calcification tests, durability testing, kinematic and hydrodynamic studies and thrombogenicity testing.

The main focus of the working group is the development of new experimental methods.
