South Tyneside and Sunderland NHS seeks device for neonatal temperature monitoring – htn

South Tyneside and Sunderland NHS Foundation Trust is seeking a device capable of continuously and remotely monitoring neonatal temperature in the first 24-72 hours of life.

Posting their challenge on Barclays Eagle Labs, the trust states that the solution must be “safe, transportable, effective and efficient for use on a ward setting”. They highlight that such a device could assist in preventing and detecting hypothermia, noted to be a significant contributor to morbidity and mortality.

Barclays Eagle Labs, a network of investors, mentors, experts and more, describe themselves as “on a mission to support the UK’s entrepreneurial community”. Through working with a wide range of partners, they aim to provide support to start-up businesses, particularly those focused on technology and innovation.

With regards to the neonatal monitoring solution, the trust says that it is “open to innovative ideas”.

The closing date to apply for the opportunity is Friday 30 June. Start ups interested in submitting their ideas are encouraged to do so here.
