Regenerating rhythm

Life Science

Anomalies in data network traffic can be heard as disharmony. In healthy people respiration and heartbeat are in harmony.

A Welsh biotech startup is seeking to restore this natural symmetry in the event of heart failure.

Their new device imitates and recognises the body’s signals and uses the respiratory cycle to control patients’ cardiac rhythm.

In pre-clinical trials, their pacemaker was 20% more efficient than conventional models. Easing the burden on the heart and allowing cells to regenerate.

Apnoea, which triggers respiratory failure, is also less frequent as a result. Next step: tests with heart bypass patients.

Sugar could give future implants a new lease of life. Listening carefully to our bodies also makes sense.
