We recently travelled to the Netherlands to shoot a mini documentary for leading medical technology company, Thoratec.
Thoratec, who have offices in Cambridgeshire, produce devices for patients suffering from heart failure. One such device, known as the Heartmate, is currently changing lives all over the world. Thoratec wanted to capture one of these real life stories on film.
The Somersault crew met Bert De Ruiter, a teenager from Groningen who has been living with the Heartmate device since being diagnosed with a serious heart condition.
Our crew spent a day with Bert, as well as interviewing family and friends to understand how the Heartmate is improving his quality of life.
We supplied two versions of the film to Thoratec, who will be showing it at conferences and on their website. You can take a look at the finished film by clicking here.
