the extra-aortic approach of the C-Pulse technology offers greater flexibility, allowing patients to safely disconnect to have intervals of freedom to perform certain activities such as showering. The C-Pulse System may help maintain the patient's current condition and, in some cases, reverse the heart failure process, thereby potentially preventing the need for later stage heart failure therapies, such as left ventricular assist devices (LVADs), artificial hearts or transplants.
Whole different profile for a patient from VADS
No medication so with C-Pulse you can rush out the door, and not have to worry if you've if you've taken your meds (potentially life threatening with a VAD) because C_Pulse doesn't require them.
Batteries run out:-
with C_Pulse, Damn I should have remembered to charge them.
with a VAD get me to a hospital if Im still alive
C-Pulse self adjusts to your exertion level your not fiddling a dial.
Fully implantable coming, control unit and battery the size of a mobile phone.
