Introduction of Research
Development of Therapeutic Devices

Our heart simulator has already been used for the basic design of the Implantable Cardioverter Defibrillator (ICD) that delivers a strong electrical shock to the heart when a fatal arrhythmia is detected. By optimizing the arrangement of electrodes and the temporal profile of the electrical current, an ICD that is much more comfortable than the currently used device will soon be available in Japan (in collaboration with the National Cardiovascular Center).
