Medical Devices and Vulnerable Skin Network introducing new tech to reduce ...
The Medical Devices and Vulnerable Skin Network (MDVSN) has been created to integrate expertise required to introduce cutting edge technologies to reduce the incidence of chronic wounds arising from interventional medical devices.
MDVSNPLUS funding has been secured starting July 2016 to look at intelligent sensing to promote self-management within medical devices.
The Network engages with other partners, in particular our two supporting HTCs in Wound Prevention & Treatment and Devices for Dignity.
The Network has brought together a interdisciplinary skill mix and expertise, led by the University of Southampton and King's College London.
The MDVSN works in partnership with Devices for Dignity (D4D) HTC which drives forward innovative new products, processes and services to help people living with long time conditions.
The MDVSN also works in partnership with the WoundTec HTC, which aims to transform the provision of wound care and wound prevention services.
