UK-based Fuel 3D Technologies has announced it has secured a $1.1 million grant from the UK’ s Small Business Research Initiative (SBRI) for Healthcare for the development of a 3D medical imaging system. The company has already developed the Eykona Wound Measurement System which generates 3D images of wounds to allow objective measurement for accurate wound assessment. Fast processing enables rapid display of interactive 3D images and helps support an evidence-based approach to wound care, wound characterization and management. Stuart Mead, CEO, said that the aim of the new SBRI grant is to develop the Eykona system into a general medical scanning device able to benefit more patients in more specialties.
