Vision to become the primary alternative to heart transplants with the implementation of our Total Artificial Heart

A medical device company developing the world’s most advanced total artificial heart. The company aim to eventually provide a response to a major public health issue associated with heart disease, the world’s leading cause of death: chronic and acute heart failure. By pursuing the development of its total artificial heart, composed of the implantable bioprosthesis and its portable external power supply system to which it is connected, it intends to overcome the well-known shortfall in heart transplants for the tens of thousands of people suffering from irreversible end-stage heart failure, the most seriously affected of the 20 million patients with this progressive disease in Europe and the United States.

Aeson is composed of 3 parts:

  • implanted prosthesis
  • external equipment
  • hospital care console
