Ein Instrument für Herzoperationen

22-12-2023 – A research group of the Zurich University of the Arts (ZHdK) has developed a foldable surgical tool, 3Fold, for pacemaker implantations. 3Fold is the result of the bio-synthetic material, Hylomate, developed by the Technopark Zurich-based Hylomorph.

Before implantation, the pacemaker is immediately sheathed using Hylomate. Scar tissue on the pacemaker often leads to complications. Sheathing with Hylomate is intended to eliminate these problems.
