On Tuesday 26th September, we held a joint TITCH (Technology Innovation Transforming Child Health) and MDVSNPLUS (Medical Devices and Vulnerable Skin Network) Event: Innovation in Medical Devices for Children Workshop.






At the event, clinicians and academics attended a number of presentations covering medical device innovation in respiratory masks, prosthetics and orthotics, and extracorporeal devices for paediatrics.

These presentations included:

  • Technology Innovation Transforming Child Health (TITCH)
  • Starworks Innovation Project: Innovations in Prosthetics for Young People
  • The impact of respiratory masks on skin health
  • Skin breakdown in premature neonates
  • Chronological Evaluation of the Functional Changes in Neonatal Skin


In the afternoon, delegates worked in groups with academics, clinicians and industrial partners to develop ideas and proposals for research funding.
