Realheart has received a joint research grant to hire a doctoral student at the University of Bath in collaboration with Dr Katharine Fraser, expert in computer simulation of heart pumps. A new doctoral student has now been recruited, who will start this fall. The work involves creating models of the latest product version for different types of blood flow simulations.
CEO, Azad Najar comments “We are very pleased to be able to continue the successful research collaboration we have initiated with Dr Fraser at the University of Bath with enhanced resources. Realheart® TAH's flexible design where we can fine-tune how the AV plane moves and incorporate it into the automatic control algorithm means that we have very good conditions for identifying the ideal pumping rhythm to minimize the risk of blood damage.”

Scandinavian Real Heart AB develops a total artificial heart (TAH) for implantation in patients with life-threatening heart failure. Realheart TAH has a unique, patented design that resembles that of the natural human heart. The artificial heart consists of a four-chamber system (two atriums and two chambers) which provides the opportunity to generate a physiologically adapted blood flow that mimics the body's natural circulation. A unique concept in the medical technology world.Release (PDF)
