The objective of this research is the creation of a testing bench prototype for comparing different types of heart valves, taking into account the variability of some important parameters involved in cardiovascular events. Thanks to performed tests and to obtained data, the comparison between the different valves allows physicians to make the most appropriate choice of heart valve for each patient. The study is still in preliminary stage: it is necessary to do many tests in order to obtain a large amount of data with which it is possible to proceed with the development and implementation of a testing bench stable and easily programmable.
