Using the second Drinfeld formulation of the quantized universal enveloping algebra Uq(^sl2) we introduce a family of its Heisenberg-type elements which are endowed with a deformed commutator and satisfy properties similar to generators of a Heisenberg subalgebra. Explicit expressions for new family of generators are found.

Key words: quantized universal enveloping algebras; Heisenberg-type families.
