Heart failure patients can receive critical information about their condition with the world’s first in-heart sensor.
As the world’s first in-heart sensor, Israel’s V-LAP device is the first device of its kind to provide left atrial pressure readings at home, which are critical to monitoring and treating heart failure patients.
How does it work? The V-LAP is actually a micro-computer that is implanted in the heart.
According to its manufacturer, “This miniature, wireless, and battery-free micro-computer rests directly on the heart’s interatrial septum, providing unprecedented, precise pressure readings.”

Donate to the Corona Emergency Relief Fund. Coronavirus has taken a huge toll on the people of Israel. The poor, elderly and ill are most vulnerable.
Israeli soldiers, security officers and medical care providers operate under great danger and risk to life.
Over 1 million Israelis are out of work. Many cannot make ends meet. We provide financial aid, food, medical supplies and more. Funds are distributed where needed most. The time to act is now!
