The AB5000 Ventricle is vacuum assisted technology with clear housing to allow clinicians a view into the device. Unlike other ventricular assist systems that can require multiple drivers for a single patient, patients on the AB5000 Ventricle require only a single driver – regardless of condition.
The AB Portable Driver is designed to allow patients to leave their hospital rooms and walk within the hospital and on hospital grounds. Multiple studies have shown that patient ambulation, or walking, greatly assists the recovery process. The ease of use and transport capability of the AB Portable Driver makes it an important option for both regional and local cardiac centers.
