May 13 2014

Thanks to a £3.6m national competition funded by the Department of Health via the Small Business Research Initiative, kidney patients will now benefit from 14 exciting new technology solutions that will help with care, dignity and independence.

For example, 365 Response Ltd has been awarded a grant to develop a booking app for transport, three of the winners are working on technical devices that are aimed at preventing Acute Kidney Injury (AKI) and Atlantis Healthcare is developing an online support programme using coping exercises to improve self-management.

Paddy Tabor says, "The BKPA has supported this competition and looks forward to seeing the difference that these innovations will make to the lives of kidney patients."

The competition has been managed by the National Institute for Health Research Devices for Dignity Healthcare Technology Co-operative.
