P11022: VAD Reduction of Wired Content for Signal and Power Transmission


Project Summary Project Information

The objective of the Transcutaneous Signal Transmission Project (11022) is to design a transmission system to safely and effectively transfer power and control signal from the external power supply and controls to the Left Ventricular Assist Device (LVAD). The original design called for a percutaneous cable consisting of 23 wires with a diameter of 8mm. The objective is to reduce the overall diameter of the cable and the number of physical wires.
