Technology Support Programme (TSP) - Are you looking to gather NHS Evidence for your Urology related Innovation?

07 January 2019

Are you looking to trial Therapeutic or Management solutions for Urological disorders?

Wessex Academic Health Science Network (AHSN) are looking to support companies to develop NHS based evidence for solutions to managing long-term urinary incontinence and associated problems with infection.

Incontinence often constitutes a long-term condition that requires effective, discreet, reusable and easy-to-use management solutions.  Wessex Academic Health Science Network (AHSN) are seeking innovative approaches of managing incontinence whilst reducing or combating infection and other harms associated with invasive medical devices (e.g. vaginal mesh or indwelling urinary catheters).

Areas of interest to the NHS, are improved urinary catheter design, new devices for bladder control that reduce the need for surgery, innovative containment devices as well as preventative technologies that maintain pelvic floor strength or facilitate bladder/bowel muscle training. The innovation may include new materials, technologies or practices that address antimicrobial resistance.

The TSP is seeking companies that are working in these areas and have an innovation not currently in use in the NHS, which they want to evaluate in an NHS setting.
