In this work we present an innovative algorithm for the dynamic control of ventricular assist devices (VADs), based on the acquisition of continuous physiological and functional parameters such as heart rate, blood oxygenation, temperature, and patient movements. Such parameters are acquired by wearable devices (MagIC & Winpack) and sensors implanted close to the VAD. The aim of the proposed algorithm is to dynamically control the hydraulic power of the VAD as a function of the detected parameters, patient's activity and emotional status. In this way, the cardiac dynamics regulated by the proposed autoregulation control algorithm for sensorized VADs, thus providing new therapy approaches for heart failure.
