An innovative operating table extension (FLOTE) to aid minimally invasive hip surgery

FLOTE (Francis Lamont Operating Table Extension) is a compact, lightweight, portable instrument that attaches to the end of any standard operating table which facilitates simple control of the leg positioning required during a Direct Anterior Approach (DAA) hip replacement procedure. Patients undergoing DAA hip surgery using this technique have been shown to benefit from minimal post-operative pain ,shorter hospital stay ('LOS') and a reduction in blood loss during surgery.

An innovative splint to stabilise hip fractures before transfer to hospital

A new innovative splint co-designed and developed by paramedics and hospital staff that stabilises the hip fracture by means of an articulated splint which allows the responding Paramedic to immobilise the limb there reducing pain and blood loss. Unlike other splinting devices this new device has been designed to support the patient through A&E, X-Ray and into Theatre. Intended benefits include a reduction in pain and the subsequent use of analgesics (e.g. Morphine) which can have lasting impact on the patients recovery, a reduction in blood loss and subsequent increased risk of mortality.

A powered patient carry chair to reduce manual handling injury in paramedics

An innovative patient carry chair co-designed and developed by paramedics to reduce the risk of manual handling injuries, a major cause of sickness and absence in the Ambulance Service. Features include the ability to fold flat to enable safe and rapid pick up of patients off the floor, a novel skid enabling safe patient extraction down staircases.

3D Fusion Ultrasound to improve diagnostic quality of conventional ultrasound

Intelligent Ultrasound 3D Fusion is an innovative software technology combining conventional ultrasound scanning with advanced automated image analysis post-processing to improve the diagnostic quality of scans and ensure that the doctor has the best ultrasound-based information to make a clinical decision.

A real time, online pathway for delivering Steps 1, 2 and 3 of the NICE Stepped Model of Care for anxiety and depression

Big White Wall in partnership with the Tavistock and Portman NHS Foundation Trust provides real-time therapies by instant text, audio or audio-visual channels from a panel of NHS approved therapists who are accredited and have at least five years’ experience delivering an online pathway for Steps 1, 2 and 3 of the NICE Stepped Model of Care for anxiety and depression.

A Clinical Decision Support System to reduce variation and improve compliance with best practice clinical guidelines

CREDOMDM is an innovative clinical decision support system (CDSS) that provides outputs and user interfaces for clinicians, patients and managers, which promote fully transparent and informed clinical decisions, based on clinical guidelines and patient choices, and record all clinical decisions and rationales for clinical audit purposes. Audit functionality can show patients and managers at a glance whether patient treatment has been in line with clinical guidelines.

An innovative wheelchair for children and young adults

Chair4Life is an innovative, powered wheelchair that aims to transform the lives of disabled children and young adults. Chair4Life incorporates a number of features unique to the design of powered wheelchairs, together with a range of adjustment and mounting innovations which seek to address a broad spectrum of the needs and requirements of both the user and those in the clinical assessment and equipment supply chain.
