Under Pressure

Dr Llewellyn Padayachy, a neurosurgeon at UCT’s Red Cross Children’s Hospital, met medical device experts from SINTEF (Norway) and collaborated on the development of a device to measure intracranial pressure (ICP) non-invasively using ultrasound, based on his original idea.  Excellent progress has been made and a new UCT/SINTEF spin-off company “Nisonic” has been established in Norway to use venture capital available in that environment to take the development through to commercialisation.  Technology Innovation Agency (TIA) Seed funding will be used to perform the initial validation of the device in clinical trials which will be conducted in SA.
