Un prototipo ecuatoriano de cirugía ganó en Rumania

Un prototipo ecuatoriano de cirugía ganó en Rumania | Ecuador | Scoop.it

REDACCIÓN TECNOLOGÍA Domingo 16/06/2013

Llegar a Bucarest fue laborioso para las hermanas Verónica y Tatiana Benalcázar. Ellas debieron acomodar en cuatro maletas los transformadores, elementos electrónicos, destornilladores, materiales informáticos y repuestos de su proyecto Vitrectomy, con el cual se impusieron en el Infomatrix, encuentro mundial que promueve proyectos innovadores. Ese prototipo de cirugía ocular viajó totalmente desarmado. El equipo, que tarda tres semanas en armarse, vio luz en apenas dos días en Bucarest para que Tatiana y Verónica Benalcázar concursaran. Verónica, de 28 años, estudió Ingeniería Eléctrica en la Universidad Politécnica Salesiana y Tatiana, de 24, cursa el último nivel Ingeniería Electrónica y Control en la Escuela Politécnica Nacional, establecimiento superior al que representaron en la Infomatrix 2013, donde las hermanas ganaron el primer lugar en la categoría Hardware Control. Vitrectomy Prototype es un prototipo para cirugía ocular que se usaría para extraer el vítreo (gel que rellena la cavidad ocular) y limpiar las opacidades del ojo, retirar coágulos sanguíneos, tratar infecciones y enfermedades.

A few puffs on a Marlboro and a damn good thrashing with some herbs – apparently that's all it takes to stop a child from having nightmares. Or so the limpea healers in Quito's San Francisco Market tell me.
