Project summaryResearch in the area of biomechanics and mechanic of lower limb prosthesis. Search for and investigations of new technical solutions enabling creation of the lower limb prosthesis, which meets the following basic requirements:
- maximum functional likeliness of the biological human limb,
- reliability and safety excluding traumatism,
- convenience and comfort in use.
Application of available RFNC-VNIITF technologies for nonmilitary social purposes.
To involve about 30 staff members of RFNC-VNHTF (more than 70% of the total number of Project participants) in the activity not related to the development and improvement on nuclear weapons.
The proposed investigations will allow creation of the up-to-date prosthesis for a more full rehabilitation of low-limb amputees.
Potential role of the foreign collaborators
Organizing support (connections, finding of information sources), project lobbing.
The International Science and Technology Center (ISTC) is an intergovernmental organization connecting scientists from Kazakhstan, Armenia, Tajikistan, Kyrgyzstan, and Georgia with their peers and research organizations in the EU, Japan, Republic of Korea, Norway and the United States.
ISTC facilitates international science projects and assists the global scientific and business community to source and engage with CIS and Georgian institutes that develop or possess an excellence of scientific know-how.
