Danish discovery could help cardiac patients

The Danish researchers have developed a component that could make live easier forpatients with heart failure.
The researchers at the Engineering College of Aarhus and Aarhus University Hospital have developed an intelligent ring-shaped component that could make live easier for cardiac patients. The component apparently enables the device to re-create the heart's pumping function. This makes it possible for patients with faulty heart valves to avoid the repeated operations which are necessary today.

The research team member Morten Ølgaard Jensen at the Engineering College of Aarhus states that the team has no ambitions to put the heart ring into production. The most likely eventuality is that a large, cash-rich foreign manufacturer, probably in the USA, purchases the discovery with a view to conducting human clinical studies and eventually bringing the product to market.
