Date: 7th December 2017, 7pm
Looking forward to seeing you there!
NeuroDynamics is a biotechnology start-up based in the University of Manchester. We are dedicated to the development of innovative solutions for peripheral nerve regeneration.
Peripheral nerve damage is most commonly caused by traumatic injury, rendering an individual with debilitating long term functional loss. Annually, 700,000 peripheral nerve surgeries are carried out worldwide (Brattain, 2013). People of all ages are susceptible and potentially at risk. Many patients with nerve damage are under 55 years old leading to lifelong problems such as loss of mobility dramatically reducing quality of life and work capability.
Especially large peripheral nerve injuries have poor clinical outcomes and we aim to address this with our innovative peripheral nerve guidance conduit.

Atomic Mechanics is a new spin-out business from the University of Manchster with th business mission to design, development, manufacture and sale of a range of proprietary sensors and actuation devices based on graphene-polymer membranes.
Atomic Mechanics is currently developing two groups of products:
1. Ultra-robust chip-based Pressure Sensors
2. Transparent, flexible film-based variable force Touch Interfaces
The Pressure Sensors will have significant competitive advantage over current technologies in the industrial, oil & gas, chemical, consumer electronics, automotive and utilities/power generation sectors.
The Touch Interfaces are believed to offer a completely unique set of benefits to the displays, robotics, control panels and consumer electronics markets.
