U.S. researchers have developed a new device that could help in the future to prevent heart attacks or death. It is specifically a thin elastic membrane revolutionary to mount on the heart itself, can monitor heartbeats and automatically corrects any irregularities. It could be the new generation of pacemakers and could come to human hearts in the next ten or fifteen years.
For now, this membrane has only been tested on the heart of a rabbit and is formed by a network of sensors and elytroid, designed to be adapted over the heart beat and to do it perfectly. To create this innovation was made computed tomography of the heart of a rabbit to create a 3D model, and then the membrane was applied on the heart itself besides serving as pacemakers also works as an artificial pericardium, or the membrane covering the heart.
