BRINGING HEART TECHNOLOGIES TO THE WORLD
HOW DID CALON BEGIN?
Mission to develop an Implantable Heart Pump that is best-in-class
In 2007, Prof Stephen Westaby, an eminent heart surgeon and pioneer of mechanical circulatory support and Prof Marc Clement, a chartered engineer, chartered physicist and serial entrepreneur met and founded Calon Cardio-Technology Ltd.
OUR VAD PRODUCTS
The Calon MiniVAD™ system consists of an implanted pump and peripheral devices which together create a circulatory heart assist system to boost the function of a failing ventricle
PRIVATE INVESTOR OPPORTUNITY
Following significant technical progress Calon is currently seeking investment to proceed to first in human studies.
WHAT IS HEART FAILURE?
Heart failure occurs when the heart's ability to pump blood progressively deteriorates until it is unable to meet the demands of the body
Chronic heart failure is a leading cause of death in the developed world, estimated to impact over 20 million people at any one time. While symptoms can often be treated, the underlying process is largely irreversible.
We believe Calon's new pump is poised to be the next big revolution in cardiac technology
