"MEDPIG" - "Wprowadzenie do praktyki klinicznej oryginalnej polskiej wszczepialnej wirowej pompy wspomagania serca oraz systemu zdalnego monitorowania i nadzorowanej zdalnie rehabilitacji pacjentów na wspomaganiu serca", akronim: "RH ROT".
The main objective of the RH-ROT – NCBiR project is to increase the usage of mechanical circulatory support systems in treating heart failure in Polan.
The project consists of:
• implementation of an innovative centrifugal pump supporting circulatory system in the long-term – the original Polish ReligaHeart ROT system – and deploying it into pilot production and clinical practice,
• development and implementation of a nationwide system of remote monitoring of out-patients with implanted LVAD-type centrifugal pumps (for a variety of currently available circulatory support devices) into clinical practice,
• development and implementation of a new model of complex cardiovascular rehabilitation for in- and out-patients with implanted LVAD-type centrifugal pumps (remote tele-rehabilitation and monitoring for out-patients).
