Research into an artificial Wearable Lung to help patients be mobile prior to lung transplantation. 
 
Patients preparing for a lung transplant often end up bedridden for extended periods of time while awaiting surgery. Hence any advance in technology which could potentially extend the period patients wait whilst allowing them to remain mobile is very important.

 

This is a preliminary report of a device which will need to be trialled on patients.
