The Aeson® total artificial heart* is a truly phenomenal feat of engineering brought to reality by the French company Carmat, who's vision is to become the primary alternative to heart transplants with the implementation of their Total Artificial Heart. A solution to treat patients suffering with advanced heart failure, their active implantable medical device completely replaces the heart organ with a mechanical pump that mimics the action of a human heart. PEEK is used to create the structural housing of the device because of its biocompatibility and outstanding mechanical properties.

Unlike interbody fusion devices that are coated, PEEK-OPTIMA™ HA Enhanced devices have hydroxyapatite crystals on all surfaces which results in earlier bone on-growth and greater new bone formation on a fully osteoconductive implant.
Victrex PEEK polymers provide an inert material that offers a range of high attributes for mechanical, chemical, or electrical performance in applications such as inhalers, wearable patch pumps and autoinjector insulin pens.
