Nowadays advanced heart failure is mainly treated through heart transplantation. However, the low availability of donors makes the research of alternative therapies urgent. Continuous-flow left ventricular assist devices (LVADs) are going to assume a more significant role in assisting the failing heart. A recent challenge in clinical practice is the(More)
In this work we present an innovative algorithm for the dynamic control of ventricular assist devices (VADs), based on the acquisition of continuous physiological and functional parameters such as heart rate, blood oxygenation, temperature, and patient movements. Such parameters are acquired by wearable devices (MagIC & Winpack) and sensors implanted close(More)
