Practicing and validating our methodology for the next iTrend data study

Its sometimes easy to forget how much work goes into setting up the best patient experience possible for the brilliant volunteers who freely engage with our patient study activity. We’re currently kicking of our second patient study, which focuses on validation of the sensors and software algorithms which we have developed on the project to […]


New patient study approval granted for iTrend hemodialysis research programme

The iTrend (Intelligent technologies for Renal Dialysis) team is about to make an important step forward. We have developed a new sensor system and associated analysis which delivers non-invasive, real-time, continuous blood pressure measurement for the duration of a dialysis treatment. Previously we have developed hardware and analytics on our laboratory test rig which simulates […]

Analysing the physiological impact of dialysis @derbyuni @DerbyRenalTeam

making good progress updating the sensors and control systems on our cardiovascular rig. We now have the facility to estimate patient real-time arterial blood pressure non-invasively during dialysis, and will have the real-time data from our 50 patient study at Royal Derby Hospital running on the rig next week. The next main tranche of work […]


Our synthetic hemodialysis patient @DerbyUni has grown an artery……..

Alongside the data analytics coming in from our patient study at Royal Derby Hospital, @ProfJillStewart and I have been developing our #Dialysis experimental simulator. The Aorta has now grown a Left Subclavian Artery, and subsidiary arteries which have fistulas to connect the patient to our Dialysis machine. Still lots of work to integrate simulated cardiovascular control, […]
