    Assistive Technology and Rehabilitation 2.9 million awarded for technologies to improve patients' quality of life. The projects funded aim to improve prosthetics, hearing aids, and develop a wearable material to support healing muscles or create an exoskeleton.

    Notes to editors: The 15 research projects involve 27 university research teams and involve numerous industry partners and NHS Foundation Trusts. The projects are:

    Medical Imaging:

    Radio and sound waves to image cancer treatment Developing a new medical imaging technique called electromagnetic acoustics (EMA) which sends ultrasound waves and radio waves into the body. Research will study how it can be applied to detect breast cancer and to monitor the treatment of cancer tumours. Led by Professor Robin Cleveland, University of Oxford, in collaboration with the Cancer Centre at the Churchill Hospital, Oxford. Grant: 978,000.

    Point-of-care high accuracy fracture risk prevention Researchers aim to develop a new diagnostic tool to examine bone quality characteristics in order to accurately predict fracture risk arising from diseases such as osteoporosis. Potentially hand held devices could be made. Led by Professor Keith Rogers, Cranfield University with the University of Bristol, Nottingham Trent University, the University of Exeter, HALO X-ray Technologies LTD and Radius Diagnostics Ltd. Grant: 766,000.

    Quantitative functional MRI: developing non-invasive neuroimaging to map the human brain's consumption of oxygen Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) will be developed to map the amount of oxygen that the brain uses. The technique will offer a marker for disease and treatment effects in neurological conditions such as epilepsy, multiple sclerosis and dementia, as well as psychiatric conditions such as depression and schizophrenia. Led by Professor Richard Wise, Univ
