reedom-portable-driver.html" onclick="linkClick(this.href)" rel="nofollow">Freedom® portable driver, the world’s first wearable power supply for the SynCardia Total Artificial Heart.“Before the operation my heart beat was very weak and I could hardly feel my pulse,” he said. “And now (with the Total Artificial Heart) it’s a very strong heartbeat.”

Delighted with his new human heart, Green noted that the artificial heart “kept me going” as he waited for his transplant.

The Total Artificial Heart, powered by the Freedom portable driver, allowed Green to live at home while waiting for a suitable heart donor. He went on outings, including eating at restaurants, while the Freedom driver, carried in a shoulder bag, powered the Total Artificial Heart’s pumping mechanism with precisely calibrated pulses of air and vacuum.

Papworth Hospital is the first and only hospital in the UK certified to implant the SynCardia Total Artificial Heart. Papworth performed the UK's first heart transplant in 1979 and has been using mechanical devices to support patients with end-stage heart failure since the 1980s.

The Freedom portable driver is CE approved for use in Europe and undergoing an FDA-approved Investigational Device Exemption (IDE) clinical study in the U.S.
