As Dr. Pramod Bonde of the University of Pittsburg Medical Center speculated, "[wireless power] can be leveraged to simplify sensor systems, to power medical implants and reduce electrical wiring in day-to-day care of the patients."

The Free-D wireless power system, developed by Dr. Pramod Bonde of the Yale Department of Surgery, successfully wirelessly powers an implanted heart assistance device, creating much hope and promise for heart disease patients.

However, Dr. Bonde, who joined Yale Medical Group in September as surgical director of Mechanical Circulatory Support, also specializes in LVAD surgery as a "destination therapy," or permanent solution.
Before coming to Yale, Dr. Bonde practiced at Johns Hopkins Hospital and UPMC, where he accrued an extensive record of outstanding clinical outcomes in LVAD implantation and such cardiac surgeries as bypass surgery, valve repairs and aortic surgeries.
Father Whittel is a patient who, from a medical point of view, had a very sick heart," says Dr. Bonde.
Dr. Bonde discussed the case extensively with fellow heart failure cardiologists.
The device, which Dr. Bonde says will function for several years, essentially takes over the work Whittel's ailing heart can no longer do.
He still has months of physical and cardiac therapy ahead of him, as well as follow-up visits to monitor his stability and endurance. But soon after the procedure he embraced his physical therapy with such gusto that he earned himself an early release from the hospital. He's happy to talk about the mile-long walk he recently took on an even grade and his shorter strolls in his family's hilly neighborhood.
"I'm learning that I have to change some of my daily activities because of the equipment," he says.
Pramod Bonde, MD, is hoping to provide patients with better LVADs in the future. He has developed a wireless micro-LVAD that switches on only when the patient needs it, much like a pacemaker does. For patients whose hearts have the potential to recover, this would allow the actual heart muscle to do the work when it is able, strengthening it. But the LVAD would serve as a failsafe, switching on should the heart fail to pump.
This lower impact device would be appropriate to implant in patients in the early stages of heart failure-long before they get to the dangerous and debilitating stage that the Rev. Joseph Whittel reached.
Dr. Bonde has been watching LVADs and their batteries shrink and improve over the years. In 2008, he teamed up with Joshua Smith, a professor of computer science and electrical engineering at the University of Washington. Together they developed a prototype of the wireless device that has worked in the lab, but he will not be able to provide it for patients until it is commercially available. Dr. Bonde says the wireless pump could be implanted with minimally invasive "keyhole-type" surgery.
Dr. Bonde is looking forward to the day when the Bonde-Smith model would eliminate those problems.
