AbstractWe have made significant progress in development of an implantable axial flow blood pump intended fcirculatory support. As a result, prototype designs of the pump, its cannulae, and a console based cformal qualification testing. One element which remains to be developed is a portable, wearable contfrees the patient from being tethered to a console, and, from the users point of view it is a most csystem. Indeed, successful, wide-spread application of the axial flow pump system will in large partof this component. Considering its importance, and the scope of the task required to develop a portaa separate Phase I effort is proposed. It involves the design, fabrication, and test evaluation of sThe goal is to demonstrate the feasibility of these concepts as determined by functional requirementacceptance by simulated users. If these are accomplished successfully, the last vital element of theblood pump system will have been defined in anticipation of animal trials.
