This cardiac simulator allows students to practice cardiac surgery procedures without having to practice on humans. The patent for the simulator is owned 50% by Dr. Paul Ramphal (medical doctor), Professor Daniel Coore (FST, Department of Computing) and Dr Michael Craven, who all helped implement and develop it; and 50% by UWI. The technology has been licensed to KindHeart Ltd, a start-up based in Chapel Hill North Carolina, USA. The developer team has also collaborated over the last 12 years with the University of North Carolina, to develop it to where it is now.
