Executive Summary

Cardiak's chief goal is to help the heart heal itself. The company is developing a device that is designed to reduce the load on the heart and at the same time increase the blood supply to heart tissue, thereby promoting improved function of the patient's own heart. The device-called the AK Pulsor-could aid those patients too far along to be helped by drugs, but not sick enough to warrant the implantation of a ventricular assist device, which serves as a bridge to heart transplantation.
