Project description:
The project was created in cooperation with Prof. Zbigniew Religa Cardiac Surgery Development Foundation in Zabrze, whose artificial heart design, Religa Heart, required a put-on structure and casing for the controller worn by patients. The result is a combination of technology and design that overcomes barriers and expands potential, giving freedom and confidence to people with an artificial heart to participate fully and actively in the society’s life.
