Totally implantable artificial heart system for clinical use

Study period:2000 - 2000
Organization (1):
Investigating Researcher (4):
Research overview:
Small-size turbo pump system with continuous flow will be developed for an implantable ventricular assist system without removal of natural heart. The reliability, the durability and the biocompatibility will be highly enhanced compared to the present state of art. The component technologies are as follows: adaptive control of blood flow rate, enhancement of biocompatibility regarding flow and material, enhancement of durability and reliability for bearing and monitoring, and system integration for size reduction.
