Our System

Based on Dr. Richard Wampler’s novel shuttling pump design concept, OregonHeart is developing a highly effective, reliable, durable (10+ year product life), and cost-efficient Total Artificial Heart System (TAHS) appropriate for both pediatric and adult destination therapy with much improved quality of life outcomes for patients.

Highlights:

  • Truly pulsatile rotary pump with no valves, a single moving part, and zero mechanical contact.
  • Excellent blood compatibility minimizes blood damage and reduces the risk of thrombosis.
  • Adjustable settings allow clinicians to best meet patient-specific physiology.
  • Developed with proven, approved materials translating into lower risk and cost.
  • Wearable components will be relatively compact and lightweight enabling patient mobility (movement and exercise) similar to Left Ventricular Assist Devices (LVADs) for improved quality of life and medical outcomes.
