Alongside our HCPC registered clinical scientists, the team comprises of clinical technologists, who help to provide technical solutions to complex clinical problems by utilising their engineering knowledge and skills, and healthcare science assistants, who provide support to our clinical scientists and clinical technologists.
As scientists and engineers, we are heavily involved within the development and prototyping phases. Utilising our skills and background in electronic, mechanical and software engineering. We design, build and test an array of different devices for use clinically, in research projects and to demonstrate brand new innovative ideas to commercial partners, universities and patient and public groups. We are involved in the development and testing of devices, improvements in the way services are delivered, and continuous quality improvement processes.
