The Kemerovo scientist has developed the project of new type of artificial limbs of valves of heart

The project of the latest technology of a polymeric artificial limb of valves of heart of the Kemerovo scientist Fonda of assistance to innovations has got support. Have chosen the best from 970 projects which have come to the Start program organized by Fund of assistance to innovations from the whole country. So, the project of the Kemerovo expert Alexey Akarachkin has won a competition in the "Medicine and Technologies of Health-saving" direction. He will get support from Fund of two million rubles on development of the project in 2018-2019. – The project is directed to creation of new type of artificial limbs of valves of heart with unique properties: high biocompatibility and long service life. The modern block copolymers of the SIBS family applied to production of the folding device of an artificial limb will allow to create an artificial limb of the valve of heart of the person with service life more than 15 years (for traditional biological artificial limbs of 7-8 years) needlessly in lifelong therapy as for mechanical artificial limbs, – the press service of regional administration reports. According to experts, such development – a worthy analog traditional mechanical artificial limbs of valves of heart.
