D4D and University of Leeds link up for new device

D4D and the University of Leeds have been awarded £356,000 by the NIHR Invention for Innovation early stage scheme to develop new flushable sustainable devices for active continence management. The project is funded for two years and will build on previous research undertaken by the Leeds Centre for Technical Textiles research group to develop systems to actively manage the liquid contents of continence devices to prevent spillages and aid disposal. The Bladder and Bowel Foundation, the UKs largest bladder and bowl charity will be supporting and advising on the project to ensure that any new products meet user needs.
