Engineered for reliability and durability
We are committed to partnering with you to advance end-stage heart failure therapies for your patients.
Passive maglev with hydrodynamic bearings means there’s no need for electronic sensors or mechanical bearings — resulting in a less complex system eliminating friction, heat, and component wear.1
Dual motor stators enhance efficiency and provide redundancy to rotate the impeller, designed to maintain support even in single motor operation.2
3 Blood Flow Paths
A patented, wide-blade impeller featuring 3 blood flow paths — primary, secondary, and tertiary — designed to enhance blood flow and reduce blood trauma while reducing the time blood travels through the device.3
