Item Type:Article
Additional Information:Urological devices had been previously devised on a largely ad hoc basis. This article described EPSRC/MRC funded work to obtain key, previously missing, physiological data on pressures and material properties in the suprapubic track � a 1st pre-requisite for more rational design, minimising the use of human subjects and animal models. The projects, for which the author led the EPSRC component, obtained favourable reviews (alpha or equivalent). The work led to the formation of the BioMed (device and treatment development) Centre at Southmead Hospital, Bristol (contact Adele Long) which is using the findings with commercial partners.
