A team of Penn State researchers at the Applied Research Laboratory (ARL) and Materials Science Department have seen the Left Ventricular Assist Device (LVAD) they developed between 2005 and 2011 transitioned to its first successful human test in March. Thoratec Corp., a world leader in mechanical circulatory support therapies for failing hearts, licensed the technology from Penn State in 2010. LVADs are designed to partially take over the pumping function of a failing heart. In less than three years, the preliminary design components, test facilities and manufacturing techniques developed at Penn State to build a prototype device have been evolved by Thoratec to where the LVAD could be tested in humans.
