Bond Digital Health receives Innovate UK funding

Bond Digital Health, a Cardiff-based digital health company has received £68,583 from Innovate UK.

Insider Media reports the grant, awarded as part of Innovate UK’s Precision Medicine competition, will allow Bond Digital Health to develop a new wearable technology product for people with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). The device will help them monitor their condition and provide more accurate and comprehensive health data to their doctor.

Ian Bond, the founder of Bond Digital Health, who has COPD, said the device could “transform” the doctor-patient relationship. He said “With a chronic condition like COPD there is often lack of information for days or months between appointments, which we call the ‘whitespace void’, during which the doctor has to rely on anecdotal evidence or, at best, inaccurate paper diaries detailing the patient’s condition. Using the application of machine learning, we can empower COPD patients to self-manage their condition, improve their wellbeing and reduce consultations and admissions.”
