The Hypertronics HyperGrip and D series connectors were chosen because of their reliable electromechanical performance characteristics: high cycle life, low contact resistance, low insertion/extraction force and resistance to shock and vibration.

The CardioWest(TM) temporary Total Artificial Heart manufactured by SynCardia is the only FDA and CE approved temporary Total Artificial Heart in the world. In the pivotal clinical study of the CardioWest artificial heart, 79% of patients receiving the artificial heart survived to transplant. This is the highest bridge-to-transplant rate for any medical device. The artificial heart has been implanted in more than 780 patients, accounting for more than 150 patient years of life on the device. The Freedom(TM) driver is designed to allow patients to be discharged from the hospital while they wait for a donor heart transplant which eliminates most in-hospital costs for this portion of their care. It is designed to improve their quality of life and weigh less than 10 lbs.
