Title ARTHRITIS MANAGEMENT: PATIENTS ARE TAKING THE LEAD Media name/outlet Med-Tech.World Country/Territory United Kingdom Date 22/09/22 Description BloodTrackR: INVOLVING PATIENTS IN THE ARTHRITIS MANAGEMENT PROCESS
Researchers at Ulster University aim to help arthritis patients keep themselves well by using BloodTrackR, a device with the potential to detect the early signs of flare-up in the patients.
BloodTrackR is a new blood collection device with the potential to allow rheumatoid arthritis patients to detect the first signs of a flare-up of their condition at home. The researchers’ principal goal for this new device is that, alongside being reliable and robust in its design and execution, it will be highly user-friendly.
“Trying to get the right medicine to the right patient at the right time” is how Dr David Gibson, principal investigator on this project, explained the fundamental philosophy behind this work. Dr Gibson is also the research group lead of the Personalised Medicine Centre and senior lecturer at the School of Biomedical Sciences at Ulster University. The biochemist has been involved in arthritis research for over 15 years.
