Project Description

Left Ventricular Assist Device (LVAD)

Cardiac assist devices are implanted via the apex of the heart and pump blood from the ventricle directly into the ascending aorta via a vascular prosthesis. To make the implantation and functional principles of the system easier to understand for healthcare providers and patients, we are working with a manufacturer on an app that both explains the functionality and facilitates follow-up care and technical control of the device.
