  • F.R.A.M.E. (facial remote activity monitoring eyewear) An inconspicuous, non-invasive, mobile sensor device for real-time control of assistive technologies through facial expression. Facial paralysis results in weakness of the facial muscles, typically on one side of the face, affecting the facial function, appearance and communication of emotions. The objective of the project is to develop a working prototype and trial (through proof-of concept clinical studies) an inconspicuous, non-invasive wearable device (indistinguishable from normal spectacles) that provides discreet feedback on facial muscle movement and helps patients to continuously practise facial muscle exercises. This will speed patient recovery, provide direct NHS costs and time benefits and offer patients significant improvements in their facial function and quality of life.

  • Impact, acceptability and cost-effectiveness of identifying infectious diseases amongst migrants in primary care. As part of a new strategy in Leicester, UK, people born overseas will be offered testing for certain infectious illnesses (tuberculosis, HIV and viral hepatitis) when they register with a GP in the city. We aim to find out whether offering early tests for these infectious illnesses in this way will result in GPs actually doing more tests and identifying more people with these infectious illnesses.
