Company Summary :



Pumpinheart Limited has developed an implantable heart pump to treat patients with advanced heart failure. Advanced Stage Diastolic Heart Failure, with preserved Ejection Fraction (HFpEF), presents as breathlessness even at rest and there are over two million patients at this advanced stage in the United States, Canada, and Europe. The core problem is elevated cardiac pressures due to chronic hypertension in the left atrium of the heart during the resting phase of the cardiac cycle. 


Key highlights:

  • €500,000 Commercialization Fund grant for research from Enterprise Ireland 
  • Prototype demonstrated  Proof of Mechanism of Action
  • The device, PReduction system, uses ECG and pressure sensors to reduce Left Atrial pressure in the heart, and pumps just enough blood during the resting phase of the cardiac cycle to ease congestion.
  • Delivery of pump implant by catheter (cath lab) is unique in the field
  • Serviceable Addressable Market for HFpEF/Advanced Stage Diastolic Heart Failure is worth $32 billion 
  • Multi-PhD management team with great mix of world-class expertise in clinical research, engineering and business development.
