JOB VACANCY - Knowledge Transfer Fellow (£29,853-£38,951)

📥  HealthResSW

The University of Bath's School for Health (SfH), in collaboration with the Bath Institute for Medical Engineering (BIME), are seeking a Knowledge Transfer Fellow as part of the "Smart systems for rehabilitation and assisted living" project.

The primary role of this position is to exploit SfH and BIME current knowledge to develop commercial products and tools. In addition to this, the postholder will be responsible for increasing awareness and promoting adoption of technology and interventions for long term conditions.

The SfH and BIME have both carried out significant research into the application of technology to support rehabilitation and independent living of people with specific long-term conditions, and now wish to develop this knowledge in to commercial products to maximise economic and societal impacts.

The Knowledge Transfer Fellow will be mainly based in the Bath Centre for Pain Research (BCPR) within the School for Health at the University of Bath. However, during the course of the project the Knowledge Transfer Fellow may be required to spend some time based on-site with project partners.

This position is for a period of 12 months at Research Grade 7 (£29,853-£38,951). Line management will be provided by Professor Chris Eccleston, Director of the BCPR.

For enquiries, please contact Lisa Austin: L.Austin@bath.ac.uk , 01225 386575

 

Smart systems for rehabilitation and assisted living

Professor Eccleston (Director of BCPR) has recently been awarded with an EPSRC Knowledge Transfer Award, to develop innovative ways to accelerate the translation of research outputs in to business opportunities.

In partnership with the Bath Institute for Medical Engineering (BIME), Smart systems for rehabilitation and assisted living will provide individualised support for users and carers to manage their condition. They will be suitable for the self funded, mainstream market, and are more likely to provide a sustainable long term model of delivery.SMART pic

The aim of this award is to take forward the outputs of previous awards led by Professor Eccleston (SMART 1, SMART 2 and KT) and Smart Homes work from BIME in to telehealth and telecare for those with chronic conditions, which enable them to self manage at home.

Although self care and self management are being promoted as the way forward, there is little analysis in to their integration in to the home; it assumes a medical model of health intervention, where a health professional is responsible for monitoring - unlikely to be sustainable in the long term.

This project will establish long partnerships with three key organisations working in this area: BIME, the Brain Injury Rehabilitation Trust (BIRT) - one of the leading independent providers for people with acquired brain injury, and Ivory Egg, the leading UK supplier of home automation products using the European wide open KNX architecture. BIRT and Ivory Egg are each contributing £12,000 to the project and there are also in kind contributions from industry in terms of business mentoring and technology installation.
