What is known of unusual Finnish inventions?Finns do not love haste, one of national sayings directly confirms this consciously the chosen style: “Let`s sit down and we will allow haste to pass by“. To wait, look, to slowly choose the best as it seems to them, a way from many possible. All this so. But Finns are quite often criticized by “prompter“: it is considered that citizens of the country (in typical understanding) miss a lot of things.
But whether so it actually? Yes and no. Slowness does not prevent to live at all and … to invent.
In 2001 in Finland the association of women - inventors (QUIN - SUOMI ry) which chairman a long time from the moment of the basis was Hakal`s Mail is registered. It is one more stroke to a portrait of the Finnish citizen who is very appreciating sexual equality. Certainly, different societies of inventors, including in Finland, exist for a long time, but in them men generally consist. The inventions made by women underestimate, and quite often and do not want to recognize obvious merits of their authors. Therefore the help in advance of “female“ ideas and their introduction in life became a main goal of association of women - inventors.
Besides, “The European Union women - inventors and rationalizers“ with EUWIIN (European Union Women Inventors & Innovators Network) actively works, stimulating an exchange of knowledge in the field of intellectual property, assisting development of researches in different areas, including in the traditional and nonconventional directions of art, helps to create communication between inventors and business, to get access to financing. Time in two years this organization holds a creative competition of inventions with grant support in which active part is taken also by the Finnish women - inventors.
To prove told, we will pass to some examples.
As an innovative way and development of new technology work of the engineer from Finland Ayno Heykkinen in the field of processing of textile waste and to their connection with microcement is recognized. This technology received the name TexCem after in 2007 it was shown at the first EUWIIN exhibition which took place in Berlin. Since then the world learned about new opportunities of receiving building materials from textile waste that is almost significant: the technology is patented and is widely applied to construction of the “budgetary“ housing (economically and quickly) in developing countries or places affected by natural disasters.
The material created by a method Heykkinen is received in the conditions of industrial production with use of microtechnology; it contains smaller amount of cement which is compensated at the expense of the processed textile waste. Ready building materials conform to modern requirements and are used as creative material for design. Such is the unique solution of transformation of textile waste into useful raw materials.
Search of alternative and energy saving products - one more activity in which the Finnish izobretatelnitsa were noted.
The second conference of the European women - inventors and rationalizers, passed in 2009, presented to the world new surprises. The citizen of Finland of Eia Pessinen who developed revolutionary system of obstetric aid Relaxbirth System became the winner in a professional competition. “Easy childbirth“ by means of this system improves health of the woman, child and increases safety at intervention (maintenance of childbirth) medical staff. It is necessary to notice that the position of an izobretatelnitsa which experience was improved in work not only in Finland, but also Central America, Nicaragua, in the conditions of an economic crisis, wars and embargo at the time of opening sounded as “the senior midwife“, but not the full member of academy of Sciences.
A method Pessinen is based on use of natural reactions of a human body at obstetric aid. These reactions, in turn, were studied by experience of local midwifes in the countries of Central America, their traditions transferred from generation to generation. Certainly, it is about natural childbirth by very interesting technique of management of process of a child-bearing by means of special teams, listening of heart of the child and interpretation of a condition of the woman in labor on her eyes. E. Pessinen admitted that in the Nicaraguan town of Matagalpa at that time and in those conditions (1986 - 1987) even did not use horns and stethoscopes, they simply could not be taken.
Having received at the British university the bachelor`s degree on marketing subsequently, the Finnish izobretatelnitsa closely approached justification and the description of the opening. The ergonomic method of obstetric aid Relaxbirth is even more improved today: women in labor are in a sitting position, leaning hands on handles which give big draft and help to make an effort. Vertical position of mother does advance of the child down outside more natural.
Certainly, several examples of a fulfillment of the Finnish izobretatelnitsa do not come to an end, interested persons can find a lot more interesting information in open access.
In Russia childbirth under natural conditions (and as a special case - in water) under control of specially trained personnel received ambiguous reaction of the diplomaed doctors. Speak about it, argue on it. In Russia many years are published the remarkable magazine “House Child“ in which the open tribune of opinions of opponents and broadcast of positive experience is organized.
It is possible not to agree with it, but it is necessary to notice the phenomena. However I never heard in Russia about separate association of women - inventors.
