Achievements
  • InVent won a place in the IMAGINE IF! local finals in Oxford, in October 2017. InVent, a team comprising Emily (Man Ting) Kwong (a DPhil in Engineering Science student), Glen Wright Colopy (a CDT in Healthcare Innovation student), and Davide Volpi (a Postdoc in Medical Physics), proposes a new way to help wean hospital patients from mechanical ventilators. Using the group’s expertise in machine learning and medical devices, InVent is developing smart technology for patient-specific weaning sessions that will improve monitoring and feedback to clinicians. InVent hopes that by improving the monitoring of patient weaning, clinicians’ time will be freed up to focus on the patient’s other needs.
  • Dr James Cantley, a graduate of the Oxford Biodesign Short Programme 2015-16, recently secured £40K of funding from the Wellcome Trust ISSF translational award to run a clinical study with his GaitThaw device.
  • Dr James Cantley, a graduate of the Oxford Short Programme 2015-16, pitched his GaitThaw project at the EIT Health Headstart/Proof-of-Concept Awards in Dublin on 5 September 2016. He and his team were awarded a grant of €50 000 to help them turn their brilliant idea into a commercially viable businesses. GaitThaw is a wearable device delivers with localized cues to prevent “gait freeze” a common feature of Parkinson’s disease that reduces quality of life by impairing the ability to walk spontaneously and continuously.
