Enhanced sensory perception via jitter reduction and neural synchronisation evoked by subsensory electrical noise stimulation – restoring sensitivity in peripheral neuropathy.
The elderly and patients with diabetes are at high risk of losing sensation in their feet and currently no treatment for this condition exists. This loss of feeling leads to falls, fractures and foot ulcers, which in many cases end with amputation. We have developed a new subsensory stimulation technique which for the first time restores lost sensation. Development of this novel treatment is made possible by a multidisciplinary team of engineers, neuroscientists, physiologists and podiatrists.

A correctly fitted child car restraint, appropriate for the child’s age and size, can reduce the risk of serious injury or […]
