The Skin Health research group has a long standing history of industry collaboration, providing the means to translate research findings into commercial products.

The group's multidisciplinary activities have led to new knowledge to underpin innovation in device design, translated through a series of commercially successful medical devices across the international healthcare sector. As an example, new support surface technologies have been co-developed with companies in the UK and overseas.

The team works with industry to develop test methodologies to evaluate device design features including physical models for microclimate and able-bodied volunteer evaluations. The group also works with industry on Knowledge Transfer Partnerships,  Industrial Cooperative Awards in Science & Technology (iCASE) PhDs and engages with industry through national and international organizations and standards, including the British Healthcare Trade Association and International Standards Organization (ISO/TC 173/WG11).
