Left Ventricular Assist Device (LVAD) An LVAD is an advanced mechanical pump that supports heart function in patients with severe heart failure. It helps pump blood from the left ventricle to the rest of the body, providing life-saving assistance.
Current LVAD technology has risk factors that the Dual-Motor LVAD aims to overcome.
The Dual Motor LVAD
The patented Dual-Motor LVAD design features two synchronized motors, providing enhanced hemodynamic support and improved patient outcomes. This innovative design offers better performance, reduced risk of complications, and better quality of life for patients. Let's explore the key features and benefits of the Dual-Motor LVAD.
Key Features of the LVAD Patent Design
Less Blood Trauma: The redundancy of motors allows them to rotate at half the speed, causing potentially less trauma and shear to blood.
Enhanced Performance: Compared to traditional single-motor designs.
Reduced Complications: Potential to significantly reduce risk factors associated with clotting or hemolysis.
Improved Patient Outcome: Dual motor may reduce the need for anticoagulant (and thereby may reduce death from hemorrhage).
These features make the Dual-Motor LVAD a game-changer in cardiac care.
Successful Study Results
Studies have shown that using two motors in sequence produce lower blood trauma.
Unique Licensing Opportunity
The dual-motor LVAD design provides an immediate product improvement to current LVAD medical devices. With this opportunity, licensing partners can advance their LVAD devices further, secure protection under the patent, and improve patient outcomes.
