9th grade students of the Nazarbayev Intellectual School of Karaganda Aldiyar Nakyp and Alpamys Issabekov developed a special device for people suffering from heart disease. The students’ project took the 1st place in the competition, which was held as part of the “Nauryz meetings” in Astana.
At the present time, cardiovascular disease is one of the most common diseases in the world. These diseases are the main cause of death and disability of the population worldwide. According to students, their project, the Pacemakers and Implantable Defibrillator system (PIDS), can help treat diseases such as tachycardia, bradycardia, and ventricular fibrillation without using a huge amount of drugs or a defibrillator device.
– Our device is implanted under the skin, and the electrodes are placed in the heart through the blood vessels. The device instantly determines the type of disease and sends special electrical impulses. These impulses act on the heart muscles, suppressing or accelerating their work, – Aldiyar notes.
Aldiyar presented this project at “Nauryz meetings”, a traditional event of Nazarbayev Intellectual Schools. This year, about 100 projects in 6 sections took part in the competition, which was dedicated to biomedicine, engineering, and technology. The project of Karaganda students was recognized as the best in the section “Development of “smart” prostheses and their elements. Exo- and endoprosthetics” and took the 1st place. For the successful defense of the project, Aldiyar was awarded a grant from the Kazakh-British Technical University.
Also, another student of the NIS Karaganda Ulan Mustafin was awarded 3rd place in the section “Hardware and software for monitoring the functional state of the human body.”
At “Nauryz meetings” 5 projects from NIS Karaganda were presented. There are “Robotic foot for people with different lengths of lower limbs” (authors Amirkhan Sandybaev, Vadim Nazarenko), “Hydrogel with an incorporated drug by steep” (authors Aryslan Marat, Aibek Kazhmukan), “Postrue device and mobile application to combat stoop”(authors Malika Meiramova, Dilnaz Tapina, Indira Dulatova).
