The complete simulation solution for Transesophageal (TEE) and Transthoracic Echocardiography (TTE)  in one single dual purpose mannequin.

A ‘plug and play’ solution, tutors can easily switch between TEE and TTE in their training schedules. Retaining all the features of the acclaimed HeartWorks imaging software, educational programmes can be both cost and time efficient without compromising on quality.

The Heartworks system provides high quality images and a virtual reality environment that is leading to a more rapid development of psychomotor skills, especially in novices.

Realistic probe positioning

This simulator allows for realistic probe positioning for both TEE and TTE. Authentic controls on the TEE probe for insertion into the mouth of the life-size upper torso mannequin and palpable, anatomical landmarks on the chest for TTE probe manipulation enable accurate, real-time views of both the 3D anatomical heart and related ultrasound planes.

Visualising and interpreting image relationships

Offering all the features of the HeartWorks imaging software,  when practising and developing their probe handling skills, students will see the resulting 3D heart images and corresponding real-time ultrasound views, so that image relationships can be visualised and interpreted. The integrated anatomical cardiac text book provides an additional valuable resource in the education of TEE and TTE.

Pathology and Doppler tools

HeartWorks pathology models extend the learning experience by facilitating evaluation of patients with structural and hemodynamic disturbances.  In addition, colour and spectral Doppler modalities are available along with the tools with which to make a quantitative assessment of cardiac function.

HeartWorks Dual Simulator includes:

  • HeartWorks Modules 1, 2 & 3
  • Doppler functions CFM/PW/CW
  • Measurement Tools
  • M-Mode
