Total Artificial Heart to be commercialised by Monash and BiVACOR - Manufacturers' Monthly
Jun 17, 2021 1 min, 17 secs

Through the federal government’s Medical Research Future Fund (MRFF), the Artificial Heart Frontiers Program will develop and commercialise these new devices to remedy this global health problem. .

The research team seeks to take this new technology to market within the six-year duration of the MRFF Frontiers program.

“The Artificial Heart Frontiers Program will apply cutting-edge ideas and technology to develop and commercialise new-to-world applications to support all patients with heart failure,” Monash University Heart Failure Research Laboratory lead and Artificial Heart Frontiers Program lead Professor David Kaye said. .

“This will be achieved initially with our Australian-born, innovative BiVACOR Total Artificial Heart, which is a complete replacement for a native heart. This platform technology will then be leveraged in the Artificial Heart Frontiers Program to develop the next generation of devices to support more patients with heart failure

While most patients suffer left ventricular failure and receive support from left ventricular assist devices (LVADs), many patients also suffer from right ventricular heart failure

The lack of durable total heart support devices means these patients receive little to no support. 

“No durable, permanent Total Artificial Heart exists clinically for full heart support, thus presenting a clear gap in patient treatment that the research team was keen to fill,” BiVACOR founder Dr Daniel Timms said. 

The Artificial Heart Frontiers Program aims to significantly reduce heart failure in Australia and worldwide through multidisciplinary research, leading to the development and commercialisation of devices to support or replace the heart, Monash University Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering senior research fellow Dr Shaun Gregory said.
