Dr Andrew Cameron is currently the Project Lead of an Enterprise Ireland Commercialisation Fund project housed within NUI Galway. He and his team of engineers, academics, clinical experts, and commercial consultants are developing an adjustable compression device that measures and monitors sub-bandage pressure for the treatment of venous leg ulcers (VLUs), which he has termed “Tight Alright”.
The project commenced in January 2018 and is expected to culminate in a healthy volunteer study of a prototype device at the end of 2019, at which point a start-up company (FeelTect) will be formed. Andrew’s project is a direct outcome of the BioInnovate Ireland programme, where the underlying need was first identified during clinical immersion in the University Hospital Galway and the Mayo Clinic, Rochester. Furthermore, the learnings and networks that were established within the programme will continue to support the successful progression of the “Tight Alright” technology towards commercialisation and into the future
