Welcome to the Starworks Innovation Project:
We are a young people’s prosthetics research collaboration and will bring children and their families together with key opinion leaders from the NHS, Industry, Clinical Academia and leading National Research Centres with capabilities in child prosthetics.
The collaboration will increase research across the system in order to accelerate the translation of new inventions and developments in child prosthetics into everyday use. This initiative will be centred on the needs of children and their families as well as the NHS and will ensure there is the ideal balance of ‘clinical pull’ and ‘technical push’ to create an energetic environment in which to innovate and to partner with industry.
