News roundup on 15th April 2014

Published: 15 April 2014

A pre-Easter summary of the latest news and intelligence from around the Faculty.

Health Sciences' Professor Dan Bader, an expert in tissue biomechanics and developing sensors designed to assess skin health, is part of a multidisciplinary team that's developed a new type of pressure sensor for amputees which could prevent dangerous sores. There's been some fantastic widespread coverage in the media this morning - check out this piece on the BBC. Congratulations to Dan Bader and the team.


Professor Dan Bader also featured in the 2nd focus meeting of the EPUAP on skin health and the microclimate which took place last week at the University.  Dan Bader opened and closed the three day conference and contributed to the session on risk assessment and early detection of vulnerable skin.  Health Sciences' Professor Mandy Fader also featured in the session on management of vulnerable skin. 

The meeting attracted huge support from industry and provided a wonderful opportunity to showcase our emerging research team at the University and the new Clinical Academic Facility (CAF).


A dissemination event at the Faculty was organised last week by Lisa Tedesco Triccas with help from the University of Southampton Research Group presenting the results from a clinical trial involving non-invasive brain stimulation and robot therapy for the arm in stroke.  Approximately 60 people attended including people with stroke, clinicians, academics from different institutions and PhD students. People with stroke also presented their views about taking part in the trial.  Well done Lisa!


Finally...huge congratulations to Doctors Chris Bailey and Maggie Donovan-Hall who completed the 2014 London Marathon at the weekend in aid of Help the Hospices.  What an achievement!
