Over 64 million people suffer from heart failure, one of the most common causes of death globally. Syntach's Cardiac Support System is a novel device and treatment method designed to enhance the natural movement designed to restore the heart's natural pump by acting on the motion of the mitral valve plane during the cardiac cycle, making each heartbeat more effective.
