Engineering the future of health care -- from brain mapping to smarter limb prostheses
Date:3/7/2013

, fully adaptable smart lower limb prosthetics with energy recovery Developing more intelligent prostheses to work and interact with an amputee's body; adapting automatically to user needs based on changing terrain and amputee's activity as well as harvesting energy to make the system more efficient for longer battery life. Research will focus on measuring gait dynamics, sensors to measure loads during use and optimising performance to ensure user comfort. Led by Dr Abbas A. Dehghani-Sanij, University of Leeds. Project partners: Chas A Blatchford & Sons Ltd. Grant: 619,000.

Energy efficient lower limb prostheses The research will develop new, more energy efficient prosthetic legs to improve amputees' mobility, focusing on hydraulic technology. Led by Professor David Howard, University of Salford. Project partners: University of Manchester, Chas A Blatchford & Sons Ltd and University Hospital of South Manchester. Grant: 672,000 to extend previous funding.

Designing better hearing aids using physiologically inspired speech enhancement aims to produce hearing aids which can distinguish better between speech and background noise. Researchers will use knowledge generated from neuronal brainstem recordings to design novel signal processing strategies. Led by Dr Stefan Bleeck, University of Southampton, in collaboration with the University of Cambridge. Project partners: Google Inc, and Siemens AG. Grant 613,000.

Wearable assistive materials is a project which aims to study properties of new materials and composites which could be used to support joints which bend, to rehabilitate weak muscles needing exercise whilst healing after fractures, or in an exoskeleton to help people walk. Led by Professor Nick Tyler, University College London, in partnership with URT Group Ltd. Grant: 994,000.
