Fractured Neck of Femur (FNoF) Splint »

ID3: Develop the Opportunity

Fractured Neck of Femur is a common injury encountered by Paramedics. The NHS treats over 70,000 patients with FNoF annually. This new device developed in collaboration with the NIC, Queens Medical Centre Nottingham, West Midlands Ambulance Service and Canard Design aims to reduce pain and blood loss leading to greater comfort and improved outcomes for the patient.

Locking Screwdriver »

ID2: Design the Solution

Orthopaedic screwdrivers are one of the most common pieces of instrumentation used in orthopaedic surgery. Many surgions experience common problems with existing screwdrivers. Firstly standard screwdrivers often fail to retain the screw when it is inserted into the surgical site.

Patient Carry Chair »

ID3: Develop the Opportunity

Transporting the patient from the incident site to the Ambulance has been identified as a major cause of musculoskeletal injury (MSI) in ambulance paramedics. Exisitng carry chairs require significant manual handling capabilities to facilitate transfer of the patient. In response to this validated unmet need, the NIC launched a competition to develop a new Patient Carry Chair solution.

Intelligent Mattress »

ID2: Design the Solution

The care of acutely ill and deteriorating patients has been highlighted a national need (Nice Clinical Guideline 50). The regular monitoring of patient condition enables clinicians to make informed decisions about patient treatment. The Intelligent Mattress has been identified as a clinical unmet need. The mattress solution is currently at prototype stage and can monitor vital signs such as ECG (Cardiac Monitoring), Heart and Respiratory rate through the use of cutting edge contact less technology. The contact less nature of the solution enables the device to provide passive monitoring while the patient is lying on the bed. This becomes critically important for non complaint / confused patients where applying monitoring devices can become very difficult for Paramedics and Clinicians.
