The CARMAT heart is the world’s first fully implantable, self-regulating artificial heart. It was created by renowned French cardiologist Alain Carpentier who spent nearly two-and-a-half decades developing a mechanical pump that accurately replicates the contractions of a human heart. Unlike similar devices that simply maintain an unchanging rhythmic pulse, Carpentier’s device adjusts the volume of blood it pumps according to the needs of the human body, thereby improving a patient’s quality of life.
