Title (EN) DYNAMIC HEART HARNESS
(FR) HARNAIS CARDIAQUE DYNAMIQUE
Abstract:
(EN) A reversibly adjustable heart harness is configured to surround at least a portion of a heart and to provide a compressive force to the heart during at least a portion of a cardiac cycle. The heart harness includes a plurality of wires forming a mesh structure, and one or more tensioning motors connected to the mesh structure. The one or more tensioning motors are configured to selectively increase or reduce tension in the mesh structure to readjust the compressive force provided that the heart harness provides to the heart.
(FR) L’invention concerne un harnais cardiaque réglable réversible conçu pour entourer au moins une partie du cœur et appliquer une force compressive au cœur pendant au moins une partie d’un cycle cardiaque. Ledit harnais cardiaque comprend une pluralité de fils formant une structure en treillis, et un ou plusieurs moteurs de tension connectés à la structure en treillis. Le ou les moteurs de tension sont configurés pour augmenter ou réduire sélectivement la tension dans la structure maillée afin réajuster la force compressive à condition que le cœur soit soutenu par le harnais cardiaque.
