The NIHR Brain Injury MedTech Co-operative works with patients, carers, NHS, charities, academia, inventors, SME’s and business angels to support the development of new medical devices and healthcare technologies improving the effectiveness and quality of healthcare services.
We support academics and clinicians by providing access to a multi-disciplinary team and the opportunity to forge partnerships with industry experts. We have also established a Register for Healthcare Involvement and Technology Evaluation (RHITE) to support study recruitment in brain injury research.
We engage annually in seedcorn funding competitions and mentoring of innovators and provide industry partners with access to front-line clinical and academic expertise. We can help you to build a multi-disciplinary team that will work collaboratively with you to ensure you generate the evidence you need to support the adoption of your medical device or digital technology in the NHS.
We have initiated the implementation of the ‘Public Empowerment through Patient Inspired Innovation’ vision and are committed to engaging patients and carers throughout our work programme. We believe strongly that research should focus on questions that are important to people with brain injuries, and those who care for them.
