Training Center

Inspiring learning with passionate mentors

The development of innovative medical devices and their successful use requires appropriate training of the end users. We believe that our experienced clinicians can strongly support a development team throughout the translational process (from early laboratory testing to physician training).

Act-Inno is specialized in the support of cardio- and neurovascular medical device developments. We have a well-equipped experimental surgical facility that can be used for training and simulation purposes. We also operate the Cardiovascular Training Center, which is equipped with state-of-the-art hybrid simulators to improve interventional skills. Such immersive learning methods have become an indispensable part of medical teaching. Several latest generation endovascular simulators (G7, G7+, TEE/ICE simulators, all from Mentice) provide a realistic training environment for residents, industry personnel, engineers but also experienced interventionalists. We tailor training sessions to your needs to ensure the best possible learning experience.

Cardiologists with a flair for continuing education teach a wide variety of interventions:

  • Transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI)
  • Simple and complex coronary interventions (e.g. CTO)
  • Implantation of cardiac pacemakers and defibrillators incl. CRT and His bundle pacemakers
  • Surgical techniques
  • Implantation of LAA, PFO and ASD occluders
  • Thoracic endovascular aortic repair (TEVAR)
  • Interventional treatment of acute stroke
  • Transseptal punctures
  • Transesophageal and intracardiac echocardiography

The “Clinical Anatomy Training and Research Unit” of our partner sitem-insel provides additional infrastructure, which is useful for a wide range of surgical trainings. Nine OR tables can be run in parallel for specific surgical interventions on human tissue.

We also offer tailored training courses for a wide range of end-users. You can use fully equipped lecture halls, the “wet-lab”, video broadcasting infrastructure and assistance in event planning.
