9 key reasons to invest in CAIRDAC
Cairdac has developed the world’s first leadless self-sustainable dual-chamber pacemaker with a lifespan of > 15 years –as opposed to an averaged current lifespan of 5 years – positioning CAIRDAC on a NEW market segment.
CAIRDAC’s pacemaker does not require connecting leads or generator therefor the procedure of implementation requires a minimal invasive surgery (implanted endoscopically) and less discomfort for the patient.
CAIRDAC’s pacemaker is designed to last over 15 years. A pending patent enables to offer a reliable product thanks to multi-tube packaging with ceramic and titanium windows and gold brazed tubes.
A disruptive piezoelectric energy harvester
The piezoelectric harvester module created by CAIRDAC transforms the kinetic energy of the heart into electrical energy. The device is able to capture the heart’s oscillations thanks to a technology developed by CAIRDAC’s team.
CAIRDAC’s pacemaker, thanks to its piezoelectric module is self-sustainable and is able to offer a vast array of new applications.
ALPS™ is the first self-rechargeable leadless pacemaker using the heart’s kinetic energy to power itself
CAIRDAC’s pacemaker is the first pacemaker to use a rechargeable battery, existing products on the market all use primary battery.
The use of a rechargeable battery is made possible thanks to the surplus energy harvested by the piezoelectric module. Therefore, a rechargeable battery is also implemented in order to store the exceeding energy.
The battery also plays a security role if the harvester breaks down. The battery has up to 6 months of self-operating period, it allows patients to safely reach a nearby healthcare facility.
An energy surplus that allows multiple features including multi-chamber compatibility and communication
- Inter-capsule communication allowing the first leadless multi-chamber pacemaker
- Data storage facilitating the patient follow-up
- New sensing device
