The production of Russian "smart" tables for spine treatment may begin in 2023.

Scientists of Novosibirsk State Technical University (NSTU) have produced an industrial sample of a robotic traction table - a "smart" device for rehabilitation after diseases and spinal injuries that has no direct analogues in Russia. Industrial production can be started in 2023, Alexey Tsygulin, project manager, associate professor of the Department of Design of Technological Machines and the Department of Theoretical and Applied Informatics, said at a press conference in the TASS press center on Tuesday.

"With such a task (development of a product for rehabilitation after spinal diseases - approx. TASS) doctors turned to us. If you stretch a person carefully, the pain goes away, this is the main idea of our product. We have created a table that allows you to carry out this procedure in the most delicate and safe way. It's not even about import substitution, but about creating a better product than what we have at the moment. Now we have an industrial design, we plan to complete preclinical tests by the end of the year," he said.

Tsygulin clarified that next year they are already planning to receive a product ready for production on a commercial basis, negotiations are underway with manufacturers of medical equipment. The representative of the university notes that the development is already of interest to them.

As explained in the press service of the university, the traction table is equipped with pneumatic actuators and is designed to stretch the human spine. The peculiarity of the development of NSTU engineers is the ability to control the load vector. Through a computer, you can set a program for stretching, in which the applied force is adjusted. This approach is safer and more convenient than the nearest analogues. The project is being implemented at the expense of the Priority 2030 program.

As the Minister of Health of the region Konstantin Khalzov said at a press conference, Russian-made medical equipment is not enough on the territory of Russia. "This moment is very important for the healthcare system and those patients who expect it. The developments that our universities are making will allow us to achieve a certain level of medical safety in order to produce these devices in the Russian Federation," Khalzov said.
