The Brain Injury Technologies Think (BITT) tank

The NIHR Brain Injury Healthcare Technology Co-operative (HTC) held its third focused Brain Injury Technologies Think (BITT) tank on paediatric neurorehabilitation on 17th October 2017 at Regent’s University London.

A key outcome of this event is the initiation of collaborations, mixing skills and expertise to deliver novel technological solutions for the brain injury patient pathway. To that end, seven small-medium enterprises and entrepreneurs showcased their technological innovations to a panel of patients, carers, industry, clinical and academic experts.

The next focused BITT tank that will take place in 2018 will be on co-ordinated care.

We will publish more information about those events in due course.
