Means to identify the actuator’s model are given by a recursive least squares (RLS) so they can be incorporated in a sensible way into the position observer module of the controller. This vague description of the membrane force is motivated by the lack of sufficient knowledge of the fluid-structure interaction that takes place between pump’s membrane and fluid, as well as the possibility to synthetize a controller that will not require more hypothesis of this force than what has been given. In this embodiment, first power connector 103 and second power connector 104 may both be male. Post reception sites 98 may be formed into rigid membrane ring 96 to engage membrane assembly 82 with posts 81. Alternatively, posts 81 may be attached to rigid membrane ring 96 in any other way which directly translates the motion of magnetic ring assembly 76 to rigid membrane ring 96. Rigid membrane ring 96 may be affixed to membrane 97 and hold the membrane in tension.
Actuator assembly 95 may be surrounded by first suspension ring 79 and second suspension ring 80. Suspension rings 79 and 80 may be annular in shape and fit concentrically around actuator assembly 95. First suspension ring 79 preferably is rigidly affixed to tapered section 83 near a top portion of stator assembly 72 via struts 73 extending from the suspension ring to the stator assembly.
Membrane assembly 82 may comprise rigid membrane ring 96 and membrane 97. Rigid membrane ring 96 exhibits rigid properties under typical forces experienced during the full range of operation of the present invention. Consequently, during systole a reduced volume of oxygenated blood is ejected into circulation, a situation that continues in a downward spiral until death. Such high operating pressures have the unwanted effect of overextending blood vessels, which in the presence of continuous flow can cause the blood vessels to fibrose and become inelastic. In addition, when programmer 50 is coupled to controller 30, the clinician also may download from controller 30 data relating to operation of the implantable pump, such as actuation statistics, for processing and presentation on display 55 of programmer 50. Alternatively, or in addition, controller 30 may include a wireless transceiver for wirelessly communicating such information with programmer 50. In this alternative embodiment, wireless communications between controller 30 and programmer 50 may be encrypted with an encryption key associated with a unique identification number of the controller, such as a serial number.

Output port 33 is electrically coupled to cable 29, which in turn is coupled to implantable pump 20 through electrical conduit 28 of pump housing 27. Cable 29 provides both energy to energize implantable pump 20 in accordance with the configuration settings and operational parameters stored in controller 30, and to receive data from sensors disposed in implantable pump 20. Dolor de vientre y espalda baja . In one embodiment, cable 29 may comprise an electrical cable having a biocompatible coating and is designed to extend transcutaneously. 21A, controller 30 includes output port 33 which is electrically coupled to cable 29 as described above, which in turn is coupled to the implantable pump. 15A and 15B, an alternative exemplary embodiment of the pump assembly of the present invention is described. The system described in the Brockway patent attempts to maintain a constant filling of the ventricle by measuring ventricular pressure and/or ventricular volume. As such, height of skirt 115 is preferably at least 2 mm, and more preferably at least 4 mm, at least 10 mm, and/or at least 18 mm.
