Award List:

Development of a Miniature Hydrodynamically Suspended Intrathoracic Tesla Pump

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2011 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: HHS
Principal Investigator: Richard Nazarian – 651-917-4060
Award Amount: $149,972.00
Abstract:
DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The goal of this proposal is to develop a miniaturized Left Ventricular Assist Device (LVAD) that is small enough to be placed in the thoracic cavity at the apex of the heart. The miniature pump is based on the Tesla principal and will be supported passively with… More

Development of an Infant VAD System for Long Term Uni- and Bi-ventricular Support

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2011 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: HHS
Principal Investigator: Richard Nazarian – 651-251-9227
Award Amount: $217,048.00
Abstract:
DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Development of an Infant VAD System for Long Term Uni- and Bi-ventricular Support Project Summary This objective of the project is to develop a Ventricular Assist System (VAS) for supporting infants with severe heart failure. The VAS consists of an Infant-sized… More

Development of a Miniature Hydrodynamically Suspended Intrathoracic Tesla Pump

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2012 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency: HHS
Principal Investigator: Richard Nazarian – 651-917-4060
Award Amount: $1,693,830.00
Abstract:
DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The long term objective of this research is to commercialize a completely implantable LVAD system that is less expensive, more reliable and more biocompatible than existing percutaneous LVAD systems. Left ventricular assist devices (LVADs) have significantly… More

Transcutaneous Energy Transmission System for Fully Implantable VADs

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2012 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: HHS
Principal Investigator: Richard Nazarian – 651-917-4060
Award Amount: $198,682.00
Abstract:
DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Mechanical circulatory support devices have become increasingly common in the treatment of end stage heart failure, primarily in the form of the Left Ventricular Assist Device (LVAD). Survival and quality of life have improved steadily, due to the transition from… More
