A French company named as Carmat, has recently introduced an artificial heart named as Aeson. Artificial heart that could prove a lifeline for those who are suffering from serious heart failure. Carmat says it now plains to begin sales of its artificial heart in the second quarter of this year 2021.
This device is designed to mimic a real heart using biological materials and sensors.
Heart weight is 900g and powered by some batteries. It primarily acts as a mechanical pump to regulate blood flow in the body.
According to CEO of Carmat Stéphane Piat “The idea behind this heart, which was born nearly 30 years ago, was to create a device which would replace heart transplants, a device that works physiologically like a human heart, one that’s pulsating, self-regulated and compatible with blood,”
Now these artificial Hearts are set to go on sale in Europe after the devices from French company Carmat were granted regulatory approval.
According to report there are about 2000 heart failure patients waiting for transplantation of heart across Western Europe.
