For many years, already, Russian medicine leaves much to be desired. In theory, we treat all that is possible to treat, but in practice it all depends on the foreign products and equipment. Of course, there is always a cheaper (sometimes by orders of magnitude) domestic counterparts, but they are almost always inferior to competitors in functionality. However, the country needs quality equipment and it needs it urgently. It is possible to invent our own, but also it is possible to try to repeat the success of the competitors and make the product more popular, for example, due to the cost of production.
Young Volgograd company has set us the task to repeat the main characteristics of the foreign analogue — the apparatus of passive mobilization of the joints and fingers. When due to one or another reason, the hand becomes paralyzed, fingers must be taught to work again, and the muscles — to contract. This is for this (very difficult, by the way) device is made. All Formlab designers worked on the project in an emergency mode. We had to provide documentation on the device as soon as possible — just within a few weeks. Formlab is able to work quickly. Now we are looking forward to the opportunity to produce the first prototype, and right after that there will be the most difficult stage — placing the device on a real market for the research.
