A flagship initiative funded by the National Institute for Health and Research, the Devices for Dignity Healthcare Technology Co-Operative(D4D) provides hands-on support to enable the development, adoption and spread of new innovations.

A flagship initiative funded by the National Institute for Health and Research since 2008, the Devices for Dignity Healthcare Technology Co-operative provides hands-on expertise to enable the development, adoption and spread of new innovations.

NIHR Devices for Dignity HTC works in partnership with a network of clinical experts, patients, carers, designers, engineers, academics, funders and industry to develop technology solutions to unmet clinical needs whilst helping people to maintain or regain their independence and dignity.

Our areas of expertise are:

  • Assistive and Rehabilitative Technologies – to enable people with long-term conditions or disabilities to gain greater control over their lives
  • Paediatric Technologies – to create health technologies specifically designed with children in mind
  • Renal Technologies – to help people with kidney disease regain their independence
  • Urinary Continence Management – designing and creating new products to give independence and dignity back to people with urinary continence issues

We develop solutions through a process that can include identification, validation, development, evaluation and commercialisation of technologies.

D4D is led by Professor Wendy Tindale OBE, who provides scientific leadership for one of the largest NHS centres of medical technology in the UK as Scientific Director at Sheffield Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust.
