Leviticus Cardio has developed wireless power transfer system capable of providing the day-to-day power needs of available VAD implants
Most critical Heart Failure patients (30,000 to 60,000 in US) are candidates for heart transplantation or alternatively to Ventricular Assist Device (VAD), an implanted mechanical circulatory pump. VAD is connected to an external power pack by a drive line. Infection related to the drive line represents the single most important challenge to extended VAD use. Leviticus’s wireless system is robust, simple to implant, and efficient.
