(3 customer reviews)


HeartMate Tank Top LVADThe LVAD Backpack  was made to carry your working LVAD or your spare equipment

  • Available in HeartMate or HeartWare Styles
  • Protects LVAD and all cords
  • Conceals LVAD, no one will ever know you have a medical device
  • Water resistant, no worries if you get caught in the rain.
  • Adjustable shoulder straps, one size fits all
  • Low profile, slim design
  • Elastic shoulder straps absorb LVAD weight, reducing body fatigue


Made of Sturdy Water Resistant Canvas and lined with a soft liner, this Backpack has a secure place for your batteries and controller. The Back and bottom are lined with shock absorbing foam to protect your equipment.
Heavy duty zippers come apart at the bottom on both sides to allow your driveline to exit the backpack. Accommodates either side driveline. Zippers are covered all the way around to protect against rain.

This product was suggested and subsequently tested by LVAD people. One customer noted that she could even ride in the car comfortably with this on her back. The foam liner, pads the back so you don’t feel the LVAD. The slim 3” depth is hardly noticeable and fits with your body to reduce fatigue. The whole profile is only 10” wide by 13” tall.

We will be stocking 2 versions to accommodate either the HeartMate or HeartWare brand LVAD’s. Please be careful to check the correct version when ordering. Please note this item is water resistant, not water proof.
Do not use as a shower bag, bathing, or swimming. It is not water proof.

    I bought this backpack and I love it! This is my favorite so far, I can move around without feeling the weight. I drive with it on and don’t even feel bulky on my back. I highly recommend this backpack!

    Purchase the backpack for my mother and she loves it. It helps with balancing the weight of the device, she say she barely feels it. Definitely recommend

Does the backpack require a longer controller driveline? Or does the existing Heartmate III driveline fit?

Good Question Ken, almost everyone has enough driveline to work on the backpack. There are some people who do not, it kind of seems to be people with a larger stature. Like all our items if something does not work, it should be returned and refunded or exchanged.

My husband just recently had bivads put in, would this accommodate 2 vads or do you have something that would if not?

Hi Kelli, we have several solutions that have worked for people with bi-vads. I welcome you to call me to work out the best solution for your husband.

There are two versions of the backpack just be sure to order the one for the HeartMate. It will fit the HeartMate 2 or 3.

Concerned that the exposed driveline could catch on something. OTherwise looks good.

Hi John, the driveline is exposed a little when using the backpack for your LVAD in use. It was originally designed for carrying the spare equipment, but many people started using it for their “active” LVAD. Please check out the vests which hold everything inside, or the shirts which are meant to be worn as a undershirt and hold everything.

does your product allow for a left side drive line ?

The back pack is made to accommodate either side driveline. There are two separate backpacks for HeartMate or HeartWare.
