Clinical trials: early idea testing to target future development and determine regulatory pathways. As a small and relatively new business, existing expertise was not sufficient to successfully guide the project through these potential pitfalls. Investment and company growth: finding appropriate test models for investors and understanding the investment field.
Innovation Factory Limited including University Hospitals of North Midlands NHS Trust (UHNM) are collaborating to test and validate first of a kind solution called the SnoRelief algorithm in order to map patient care pathways: the support allows the team to refine the offering, its value and intended purpose. Medical device regulation: providing expert knowledge on regulatory frameworks and mapping out the pathway to successful approval. Introductions and investment support: brokering discussions with valuable links outside the university to build initial prototypes and receiving guidance on preparing for, and raising, future investment
Innovation Factory Ltd have developed an application called ‘SnoRelief.’ Snorelief can be downloaded on the patient’s Smartphone and can be used in the patient’s own home without needing to wear sensors or attend hospital. This has the potential to give a more accurate reflection of the patient’s sleep whilst being in their home environment.
