Abstract: A novel system to control Ventricular Assist Device (VAD) is under study in the frame of the project SENSORART (FP7-ICT-248763, funded by the European Commission). The SensorART platform will be open, interoperable, extendable and VAD-independent and it will incorporate different hardware and software components in order to improve both the quality of the patients’ treatment and the workflow of the specialists. In the frame of this project a set of implantable sensors will be identified, developed and/or adapted for long term implant, in order to gather all the necessary information to control the VAD functionalities by a wearable hardware unit. Wearable sensors will be studied to assist the decision algorithms by gathering physiological parameters using non invasive approach. Purpose of this paper is to give a brief description of the system under study and describe the preliminary activity performed during the developing of the implantable and wearable sensors. In particular, the ev aluation and calibration of a novel catheter pressure sensor is reported and the results of the feasibility of a tonometry wearable system is described. (More)
