A new testing method with an anatomic bench model was developed to replace cadaver studies as a means to validate lead design/development. The test methodology was verified with cadaver study results and physician feedback. Four different lead designs were characterized through this methodology. The methodology could save one year of lead development time and $60k in costs.
