Innovations in the Early Diagnosis of Dementia Award 2018

Searching for innovation in design and technology development.

The AXA Health Tech & You programme discovers, promotes and supports the inventors and innovations in the exciting field of health tech. In partnership with Alzheimer’s Research UK, the Innovations in the Early Diagnosis of Dementia Award aims to identify excellence in design innovation and technology development that can support the diagnosis of diseases underpinning dementia.

Previous finalists and award winners have received extensive media exposure and industry recognition, potentially leading to funding, business partnerships and mentoring.

If you have developed or are developing an innovative approach that may be applied to the diagnosis of diseases underlying dementia, we strongly encourage you to apply. The approach could cover the measurement of cognitive, biological or physiological changes, using devices or other means, that support the diagnosis of diseases underpinning dementia. The approach does not have to be validated but it does have to be customer focused so it can be used by health care providers such as GPs and there needs to be a rationale provided to explain why it should be effective.
