Cambridge children invent health solutions for the future NHS
Posted on August 2, 2016
A competition organised by the Eastern Academic Health Science Network (EAHSN) as part of the Health and Wellbeing Village at Cambridge Big Weekend brought visitors of all ages, where they were invited to discover how the NHS is developing innovations to assist people in the future.
Dozens of children took up the challenge to invent solutions to improve the health of local people.
Winning entries received an Activ8rlives BuddyBand2 Waterproof Activity and Sleep Tracker, donated by Aseptika Ltd, an SBRI funded company which is pioneering medical technologies for better health.
Karen Livingstone, Director at the Eastern Academic Health Science Network said:
“We were amazed by the children’s enthusiasm. They had so many ideas about how to improve health. The entries were thoughtful and clever and demonstrated a real understanding of some of the health challenges we face.”
“The NHS workforce of tomorrow is growing up in our community today. At the Eastern Academic Health Science Network, we are keen to harness the skills and creativity of the next generation to build the NHS of the future”.
