Houston, Texas (PRWEB) April 08, 2015
ReliantHeart, Inc., an innovative supplier of advanced mechanical circulatory assist technologies, and Dualis MedTech GmbH, a provider of wireless energy and charging technology, have joined together to implement a wireless, Transcutaneous Energy Transfer system (TET) exclusively for the HeartAssist5® Ventricular Assist Device.
Dualis has agreed to integrate its wireless energy transfer technology MedBase® with the HeartAssist5® VAD. ReliantHeart’s novel HeartAssist5® (HA5) is the most energy efficient LVAD available.
In its new configuration, the HA5 will draw less than half of the energy of any other full flow LVAD. ReliantHeart refers to this energy efficient pump as being Forward Compatible with future product introduction, including the wireless Transcutaneous Energy Transfer system (TET).
Dualis is an integral part of a Forward Compatibility team formed by ReliantHeart to cooperate on an assembly of technologies intended to reduce adverse events associated with LVADs. The team includes several other companies: Lynium, Kollmorgen, Device Solutions, Transonic, Revel Engineering, Numerex, Cathtek, and Yarborough Electronics.
Several months of collaboration culminated in Houston last month, where engineers and product managers from these companies shared a behind-the-scenes tour of the Johnson Space Center, an appropriate setting for both Dualis and ReliantHeart whose roots stem from the aerospace industry. Dualis was formed from the German Centre for Aeronautics and Aerospace, and now implements its technologies for the medical device industry. ReliantHeart’s ventricular pump was developed with NASA technology and was awarded the NASA Invention of the Year.
According to ReliantHeart CEO Rodger Ford; “Dualis is heads and shoulders above most similar teams of its kind. Our partnership is more than just collaboration, it is a crusade to reduce adverse events in the LVAD field. Our mission is to compress time and accelerate beneficial outcomes. Artificial heart pumps need power but running wires through the skin leads to infection and patient discomfort. The solution is to invent a device to transfer power without wires.”
Dualis MedBase® technology will provide this solution by using magnetic coils to transfer power from outside to inside the body with no wires that penetrate the body. It sounds like science fiction, and yet will be available in 2016. Patients with a ReliantHeart HA5 will be able to upgrade to the wireless system without exchanging the pump, thereby eliminating driveline infection. “Patients will be able to enjoy the physical and social activities that are limitless without a wire,” Ford said.
Dualis MedTech GmbH started research and development of the MedBase® technology in 2006 and has since gained a substantial lead in wireless power technology, and conducted successful animal trials. Stephan Sagolla, CEO of Dualis indicated, “The internal coil is about two inches in diameter and will communicate with an internal battery and power management much like a pacemaker system. The patient will be wireless.”
ReliantHeart, Inc. is an innovative supplier of advanced mechanical circulatory assist technologies that are changing the approach to the treatment of advanced heart failure. It develops and manufactures the HeartAssist5® Ventricular Assist Device. ReliantHeart’s roots are in Houston, Texas, where it has been generously influenced by the transplant centers of Texas Heart, Methodist DeBakey and Memorial Hermann, and its technology originally inspired by NASA, the Johnson Space Center and Baylor School of Medicine.
Dualis MedTech GmbH is an innovative development service provider which supports its customers from the idea stage right through to the certification of tailor-made systems and products. As a spin-off of the Deutsches Zentrum für Luft- und Raumfahrt (DLR e. V., German Centre for Aeronautics and Aerospace), the company has transferred technology used in aeronautics and applied it to medical technology and also provide services to other sectors such as the automotive supply industry, consumer electronics and machine and plant construction.
Dualis offers manufacturers of medical devices and active implants a fully comprehensive service package for the production, integration and adjustment of MedBase® to their proprietary products. Dualis complies with the extremely demanding regulatory requirements for medical devices.

Georgia State University College of Law’s Center for Law, Health & Society will host bestselling author and award-winning journalist Seth Mnookin, who will discuss vaccinations and the media’s role in creating public health scares, at 4:30 p.m., Wednesday, March 25, in the Speakers Auditorium in the Student Center.
Following his lecture “Misinformation and Measles: The Disneyland Outbreak, Public Health and the Nature of Truth,” there will be a reception and signing for his latest book, “Panic Virus.” The book won the National Association of Science Writers 2012 Science in Society Award. Mnookin will speak during a two-part lecture series on “Understanding the Vaccine Debates.”
“Based on his meticulous research for his award-winning book, Seth Mnookin conveys the complex issues of vaccine science, public health policy and the anti-vaccine movement in a straightforward, easily understandable manner,” said Leslie E. Wolf, professor of law and director for the Center for Law, Health & Society.
“Parents determine whether their children are vaccinated,” Wolf said. “Attendees will better be able to make informed decisions based on good science instead of fear, fear often perpetuated by media.”
The Center for Law, Health & Society also will host public health law scholar Ross Silverman, professor of health policy and management at Indiana University Richard M. Fairbanks School of Public Health, at 11:45 a.m., Tuesday, April 24, in Room 100 of the Urban Life Building.
Silverman, who also holds a secondary appointment at Indiana’s Robert H. McKinney School of Law, will discuss vaccination requirements on school entry in “It’s A Small World After All: Law, Politics, and Immunization Policy.”
“Professor Silverman is a leading public health law scholar,” Wolf said. “His presentation, coupled with Mnookin’s, will shed light on why measles is having a resurgence.”
For the Silverman event, the center has applied for Continuing Legal Education credit from the State Bar of Georgia Commission on Continuing Lawyer Competency. (Cost is $ 5 per credit hour.)
Registration is not required for either event, but seating is limited.
WASHINGTON, D.C (PRWEB) February 17, 2015
The Bible, James 4:14, states, “Yet you do not know what tomorrow will bring. What is your life? For you are a mist that appears for a little time and then vanishes.” If people are just mist, how do our lives fit into eternity?
Written by Harvard Divinity School graduate Carisia Switala, “Eternity’s Secret” answers how a person could exist outside of ordinary conceptions of time. By combining biblical and scientific theories, this book explores possibilities of seeing the future, time travel and immortality. Switala says that combining the two disciplines can prove how one can live forever.
“I had an intense curiosity about time that led me down a path of exploring what the Bible and science have to say about the subject,” Switala said. “After my time at Harvard, I began pursuing the ideas I had regarding time and continued doing research over many years.”
After her mother’s passing, she sought the answer to eternal life with a greater intensity. With her expertise in biblical exegesis, early Christianity, gnosticism, world religions and her research in physics, Switala claims to have uncovered answers to the mysticism surrounding time.
“The truth about humanity’s destiny depends on decoding time,” Switala said. “A good place to start is with the revelations of both religion and science.”
Switala encourages readers to discover the mysteries of time and the secrets of eternity for themselves. Her combination of religous and scientific research, two subjects often thought of as mutually exclusive, brings new thoughts to the metaphysical marketplace of ideas.
