The Centre for Pain with the Bath Institute for Medical Engineering (BIME) and the Brain Injury Rehabilitation Trust (BIRT).
Professor Christopher Eccleston
A KTA Partnership Development award is investigating the incorporation of the Centre for Pain’s mobile assistive technology with BIME's smart home technology to support independent living in the home, for individuals with long term conditions and chronic diseases. The project brings together partners with academic expertise, a health and social care partner and industrial collaborators. Prof. Chris Eccleston will work with Dr. Nigel Harris, Director of BIME and colleagues at BIRT, to develop the technology and to plan for its commercialisation. Other partners on the project include Ivory Egg, a leading UK supplier of home automation products and ATCare, a leading assisted technology and assisted living technology transfer group.
Professor Eccleston said, ‘the smart systems for rehabilitation and assisted living that this project proposes, will provide individualised support for users and carers to manage their condition’.
