Delivering a personalised wearable device for home-based stroke upper limb rehabilitation.

Global Symbols

Helping individuals with speech, language and literacy difficulties communicate.

Health Data Sharing

Enabling personalized statements of data access, when resources are owned by set of people and they all have different preferences regarding how the resources should be accessed.

Provenance and Anonymization

Understanding data environments to automatically apply appropriate anonymization to protect individual's privacy.

Novel Medical Devices and Systems

Micro-Technologies enable remote medical diagnosis

World-leading research at the University of Southampton is developing portable eletronic devices that can assist in the diagnosis and treatment of patients with chronic conditions in their own homes.

SPHERE

A Sensor Platform for Healthcare in a Residential Environment. Integration of sensors into the home to solve real healthcare problems in a cost-effective way.

Fighting Hospital Super-bugs

Device to help fight antimicrobial resistance working alongside partners from Public Health England and Sharp.

Vivoplex LLC

Creation of a wireless, batterry-free sensor that monitors three influential factors in the uterine environment-pH, temperature and oxygen level-for the optimisation of fertility treatment and uterine health

StrokeBack

An automated remote rehabilitation system that blends advances of ICT and practical clinical knowledge that empowers the patients and their immediate carer for effective application of the rehabilitation protocol in home settings.

Capaciflector

The capaciflector is a device that can be placed on the body (typically the chest), either directly attached or on the outside of clothing, to measure respiratory rate and movement.

Community Health and Wellness

CrowdHEALTH

Creating Holistic Health Records (HHRs), which aims at integrating all health determinants.

Listening Initiative

The WHO estimates that 1.1 billion people worldwide are at risk of hearing loss caused by personal audio devices and entertainment. BTA Loudness Study is a research app developed by UoS and UCL, funded by the British Tinnitus Association.

LifeGuide

The LifeGuide project aims to build a suite of tools that enable researchers and therapists to create, deploy and evaluate internet-based behavioural interventions.

AI and Health

E-Textiles Network

The E-Textiles Network is an EPSRC funded activity to bring together researchers and developers from academia and industry interested in adding eletronic functionality to textiles and their related products.

CHIRON

Cyclic and person-centric Health Management: Integrated approach for home, mobile and clinical environments (CHIRON) will address and harmonize the needs and interests of all the three main beneficiaries of the healthcare process.

LifeLight

Medical grade vital signs in a few seconds from a selfie camera, in trials with the NHS, transforming healthcare and quality of life.

EDTriage

Evaluating at specific points duing an ED visit (e.g., at registration or after a given clinical test) a machine learning model can make accurate triage predictions regarding exits from the process.
