YES alumni created tools and technologies to deliver health solutions
Over the years, YES alumni have come up with some innovative ideas to create tools and technologies which help deliver health solutions more quickly or at lower cost. Here are just a few of them:
Bonington Biosolutions (University of Nottingham) produced a custom 3D-printed knee implant using MRI scans of the damaged knee eliminating the need for total knee replacement.
ISO Dose (University of Manchester) developed a drug delivery system which actively responds to the drug concentration in the body ensuring a consistent optimum dose.
mHealthWatchDog (Aston University) designed a machine-learning algorithm to monitor the key metabolites obtained from an implantable blood-test lab to predict a heart attack up to 4 hours in advance.
nanOvaCare (Imperial College London) invented an easy-to-use test for early detection of ovarian cancer.
Symbioma (Queen Mary University of London) created a technology which utilises the skin microbiome to help treat and prevent eczema flares.
Synaptex (University of Cambridge) formulated a reversible, non-hormonal male contraceptive pill. This pill targets the early stages of meiosis to prevent sperm production.
