Abstract

Mock circulatory test rig (MCTR) is the essential and indispensable facility in the cardiovascular in vitro studies. The system configuration and the motion profile of the MCTR design directly influence the validity, precision, and accuracy of the experimental data collected. Previous studies gave the schematic but never describe the structure and motion design details of the MCTRs used, which makes comparison of the experimental data reported by different research groups plausible but not fully convincing. This article presents the detailed structure and motion design of a sophisticated MCTR system, and examines the important issues such as the determination of the ventricular motion waveform, modelling of the physiological impedance, etc., in the MCTR designing. The study demonstrates the overall design procedures from the system conception, cardiac model devising, motion planning, to the motor and accessories selection. This can be used as a reference to aid researchers in the design and construction of their own in-house MCTRs for cardiovascular studies.
