WHAT DO THEY DO?
Footfalls & Heartbeats has patented a technique in which sensors are knitted directly into textiles. The technology can be applied to compression bandages, wound care, injury rehabilitation, baby monitoring and performance monitoring for athletes.
WHAT WILL THEY GET FROM THE ACCELERATOR?
The startup has joined the Accelerator to validate its sensors against gold standard techniques and network with more than 50 mentors associated with the programme.
WHY DID WE ACCEPT THEM?
Their product is highly innovative and strongly fits into the three eligibility themes of the accelerator. Our academics have experience of supporting / implementing products into the health and social care sectors, and our mentors also have a wealth of experience in this type of technology. Finally, we have considerable experience in stroke rehab which is the main use case for this technology.
