HeartQuest VAD

HeartQuest VAD

The HeartQuest VAD is a bearingless, fully magnetically levitated implantable centrifugal rotary blood pump. It uses magnetic levitation to suspend the shining rotor, its only moving part, inside a compact housing. The pump’s proprietary levitation technology employs a combination of passive magnetic suspension and single-axis active control, which is expected to provide optimal system simplicity and reliability.
