Dr Viktorija Makarovaite and Dr Robert Horne (Engineering) have recently secured funding for a new KTP (Knowledge Transfer Partnership) with Smith+Nephew KTP project along with Catherine Tate and Charlotte Siliafis. Together, they have received an overall funding award of £245K.
The development of an embedded system that can read the output from the sensors and correlate the data via UHF/NFC or Bluetooth to a program on the patient’s phone, computer or a separate stand-alone unit.
The project aims to provide real impact in its 30 months, with the goal of Kent developed technologies being in a commercially viable product by the project’s conclusion. This collaboration reflects the University of Kent’s commitment to high impact Biomedical Engineering projects with world-leading industrial partners.
Congratulations to Viktorija and Robert on this achievement.
