About us

At the Helmholtz Institute in Aachen, we develop and test heart valve prostheses. We are not only passionate about this, but also the history and development of heart valve prostheses. This collection was started by Maximilian Kuetting and Christoph Schmitz. A special thanks goes out to the people who helped make this website possible. Particularly Thorsten Epping for the photos, Fabian Kuzaj for setting up the website and Benedikt Marcowka for the design.

We would also like to thank the ac.biomed GmbH for supporting this website.

The valve collection is registered as official Scientific University Collection in Germany.
