The first Total Artificial Heart (TAH) that truly mimics the human heart and has the potential to revolutionise the market

Project description

New easy-to-implant artificial heart

The heart delivers blood to the rest of the body through a network of arteries and veins. If the heart is failing and other treatments are not effective, a transplant is necessary. Unfortunately, the waiting times for heart transplants are long. In this context, the European Innovation Council ArtOfHeart project will develop an artificial heart that can serve as a permanent solution for patients waiting for a transplant, as well as end-stage heart failure patients. The heart is designed to mimic the structure and function of the human heart. It is easy to implant, automatically adapts to different (physiological) activity levels and it has a 12-hour battery. It consists of two identical artificial heart pumps, a drive line and an intelligent control unit.
