Seating Matters founder and Occupational Therapist, Martina Tierney said “I’m excited to further our clinical research with such a fine institution. The early indications are that this project has significant potential to improve the lives of the patients using clinical, therapeutic seating.”
“After completed evaluation work, Seating Matters and Imperial will be mutually supportive of finding a suitable commercialisation strategy” said Dr Masouros, Senior Lecturer in Trauma Biomechanics in the Department of Bioengineering at Imperial and the lead Investigator.
Evaluation and commercialisation plans have been outlined and appropriate agreements will be put in place with both parties aiming to provide support to trial and move forward with this collaboration.
