Results Recap: Personal KinetiGraph Provides Useful Information On Parkinson’s; Leviticus’ Wireless LVAD Power System Shows Promise In First Patients
Medtech Insight's Results Recap covers major device trial results appearing on MedDeviceTracker. This week's edition, covering Feb. 1 through Feb. 10, includes published results from trials of Global Kinetics’ Personal KinetiGraph movement recording system for Parkinson’s disease patients, Milestone Scientific’s CompuFlo Epidural System for epidural-block anesthesia, and Leviticus Cardio’s wireless Coplanar Energy Transfer system for left-ventricular assist devices.
With the rivalry between Thoratec and HeartWare intensifying in the LVAD space, all eyes are now on recent strategic acquisitions by both companies, as well as ongoing clinical studies and next-generation devices in the pipeline.
Medtech start-ups are pioneering innovative device solutions for heart failure that they hope will end the vicious cycle of costly hospitalizations and declining patient health. Profiles of Calon-Cardio Technology, Cibiem, and DC Devices.
Ventricular assist devices are a viable long-term treatment option for patients with advanced heart failure, but their exorbitant price tag and their propensity to damage blood has limited their use. Calon Cardio-Technology Ltd. hopes to avoid those problems with its MiniVAD, which is similar in size and weight to the smallest existing VADs, but is designed to be more efficient and process blood flow more gently.
