Abiomed products let the heart rest “by improving blood flow and/or performing the pumping of the heart.”

Abiomed Inc., a Danvers company specializing in heart-support technologies, was awarded a federal contract that makes its Impella platform available via an online database for about 169 Veterans Administration facilities and the 42 Department of Defense hospitals in the United States. Abiomed bills Impella as “the world’s smallest heart pump.” CEO Michael R. Minogue said: “This is a significant opportunity that will allow federal medical facilities to reach even more US military veterans with our Impella technology.”
