Danish discovery could make life easier for cardiac patients

Researchers at the Engineering College of Aarhus and Aarhus University Hospital have developed an intelligent component that could make live easier for cardiac patients
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, writes financial daily newspaper Børsen.
 
Details of how the component functions are sparsely reported, Børsen writing only that the so-called "heart ring" is made of titanium and nickel, a combination which 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.
 
Research team member Morten Ølgaard Jensen at the Engineering College of Aarhus comments to Børsen: "We ourselves have 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."
