Skin Sensing Research Group


We offer opportunities for collaboration as well as consultancy to businesses and external stakeholders.

Our research has a strong enterprise ethos.  We believe that major advances in skin and health care can arise from bridging the gap between academia and industry.  

We have a successful track record in consultancy with a range of companies.  Our scientific approach offers flexible opportunities for collaboration, knowledge exchange and enterprise.  

Researchers using our facilities have developed new technologies.  As a result, they set up a successful spin-out company, Radii Devices.  

Radii works to make sure that devices such as prosthetics, orthotics, respiratory masks, and wheelchair seats are comfortable and easy to fit.

Services include:

  • consultancy 
  • industry led projects (supporting PhDs)
  • collaborative research grants

During industry led research projects, students are supported by an academic supervisor from the Skin Sensing Research Group and a member of the partner organisation.  Students apply their specialist knowledge to tackle a project brief developed in collaboration with the partner.  

When the research process is complete, the student provides the partner with a comprehensive written report and an oral presentation to explain their findings and recommendations. This process enables our partners to find innovative insights and solutions.
