Heart Pump

heart pump

Heart Pump, designed and engineered by Entech Innovative Engineering, combines discovery and excitement into a “heart-pumping” race while teaching how the heart muscle effectively and efficiently pumps blood. In this interactive exhibit, the guest presses one of three buttons to choose the duration of the interactive experience (one, two, or three minutes).

After pressing one of the cycle time buttons, guests start hand pumping a “manual heart,” racing their pumping speed against an “electric heart,” calibrated to approximate the pumping action of a human heart. The goal is to see which heart can fill a graduated container with blood faster, bringing a whole new meaning to the term “heart racing.”
