About my secondment: Sareen Galbraith

About Sareen’s secondment

Sareen is a Senior Lecturer in Biomedical Science at Leeds Beckett University, developing a new collaboration with Axxonet Global Limited and its Indian partner, Axxonet System Technologies India.

Her research with Axxonet aims to develop sensitive and reproducible sensor measurements of movement in Parkinson’s disease patients that will complement specialist neurological assessment.

Sareen used the Translate: Me Secondment Scheme to fund visits to meet with a Parkinson’s Disease Patient Group to get the view of the end-user, and to second-in a consultant neurologist specialising in treating Parkinson’s Disease patients and collaborate in the design of her glove technology – to ensure clinically relevant results are delivered.

Translate MedTech’s Secondment Scheme provides an opportunity for successful applicants to develop new medtech innovation skills and/or progress a medical technology towards clinical application by embedding themselves within a host organisation that’s seperate from their own.

The scheme is open to;

  • Researchers to temporarily take up a role in a complementary organisation, or
  • Academics and researchers to host clinicians, industrialists or innovation specialists.
