Preventing catheter caused infections
The client, a start-up, needed a cost-effective way to prevent catheter-acquired infections of the bladder and came to Team to help them find a solution.
Efficiency was key to deliver this grant funded project. We combined a small team with key skills in human factors, mechanical and electronics engineering and industrial design to take the initial concept from petri-dish experiments to a functional prototype. The group re-designed the fundamental technology and carried out testing to prove functionality.
Within 8 months, we developed a functional prototype which allowed our client to apply for extra funding to develop the device.
