The world’s first heart implant could soon become an actual part of your life.
The PEABODY Institute in Cambridge, England, has unveiled a heart-piercing prototype that can be inserted into your body.
The implant is a three-dimensional device, with a two-dimensional electrode placed on the heart and a three dimensional electrode placed in the ventricle, the part of the heart that pumps blood.
The prototype uses a technology called optically induced cardiac pacing, which mimics the rhythm of a heart beating.
The heart beat is monitored by sensors and software.
The device could also potentially help patients with heart failure and other conditions that require continuous monitoring.
The device can be implanted in just a few minutes, according to PEABOYE.
The new heart-Piercing implant uses a two stage technology that allows for continuous monitoring of the heartbeat by a small camera mounted on a belt around the wrist.
The belt also keeps the patient’s heart rate steady.
The system also uses a small, rechargeable battery that is inserted into the patient.
When the heart is beating, the battery is charged and used to power the pacemaker, according PEABYT.
This means that the heart-pad will work without a pacemaker.
Instead, the implant could provide continuous monitoring and control of the patient by a medical team.
The heart-Pad is currently being tested in the UK, the United States and Canada.
It is still in testing phase.
The technology is being developed at the Peabody Institute and PEABYE, a division of the Heart Institute at Harvard Medical School.
The patent application was submitted last month.
Peabody said the device is the first step toward a new generation of heart pacemakers.
PEABTY said it will also soon unveil a device that can replace the current implanted pacemaker in people with heart defects.
