Heart of Glass: The Art of Medical Models

This piece of AMAZING is made by Gary Farlow and his team at Farlow’s Scientific Glassblowing. 

“We do almost every part of the body,” Farlow says. “It can take a pretty artistic mind to make some of these things.”

With the help of cardiologists, the team creates custom see-through anatomically correct models that are designed to simulate blood flow, teach placement of catheters and angioplasty devices, or simply test or demo new surgical equipment.
