Abstract
The mechanisms of contractility and spatiotemporal patterns of activity of the lymphatic vessels are studied much less than for blood vessels. However, an understanding of the characteristics of their dynamics is equally important for biomedical applications. In this work, we propose a simple model of contractile activity of the elementary segment of the lymphatic vessel, which we use to assemble a model of lymphangion, a functional unit of the lymphatic system that provides lymph pumping. Our results show that the approach is promising, especially with further parametrization of the model.
