Lusio Rehab

 

Lusio Rehab

Lusio Rehab are the creators of LusioMATE, the wearable rehabilitation device that engages users with their therapy and motivates them to achieve more by making rehabilitation fun. By combining physical movements with the playing of our fun video games users actually enjoy doing their physical therapy!

LusioMATE can be used with almost any physical movement on any part of the body or in conjunction with equipment. LusioMATE can detect movements of greater than five degrees which means that even users with very limited range can benefit and can play any of the nearly 30 games that are currently available. Clinicians are able to monitor data and prescribe goals remotely which makes it great for community rehabilitation teams as well as in-patient teams.
“This gaming technology has been adopted by Cerebral Palsy Alliance and all therapy sites now have units as part of their therapy toolkits. I have no hesitation in recommending this technology...” The Cerebral Palsy Alliance, Australia. 

Lusio Rehab are proud to partner with The Children’s Trust and will be donating 10% of any LusioMATE sales where the code TheChildrensTrust is used.

Proveca Ltd

Proveca

Proveca Ltd. is a specialist pharmaceutical company developing and licensing off-patent medicines to improve the lives of children in Europe, many of whom have chronic conditions requiring long term drug treatment. 
Proveca are working on a pipeline of paediatric focused formulations to give patients greater access to licensed medicines, predominantly in cardiology and neurology. 

The purpose of Proveca is to provide drugs with:
•    a marketing authorization (paediatric licence)
•    a formulation specifically adapted to children (size, dosage, taste ...)
•    minimal excipients
•    the most optimal mode of administration for the patient and/or caregivers 

Developed with input from healthcare professionals and parents, in order to take into account the difficulties encountered in the pathologies concerned.

Proveca are leaders in licensing children’s medicines through the Paediatric Use Marketing Authorisation (PUMA) process. PUMA medicines are medicines containing patent-free active ingredients, that are further developed and licensed specifically for exclusive use in children, with an age-appropriate dosage form being mandatory. This is part of a regulation adopted by the EU Commission in 2007 on paediatric medicines, which specifically aims to improve children's drug supply across Europe (and UK). 

 

Harry’s Hydrocephalus Awareness Trust (Harry’s HAT)

Harry's Hat

We are Harry’s Hydrocephalus Awareness Trust (Harry’s HAT). We are a small national charity which aims to improve the lives of children with hydrocephalus and those who love and care for them. It is estimated that 1 in every 1000 babies will be born with the condition each year (congenital hydrocephalus), however many more children will acquire the condition following an illness or injury (acquired hydrocephalus) so the number of new cases each year remains stubbornly high. 

Our primary aim is to work towards a cure for the condition. Presently there isn’t one. Only invasive treatment, often requiring the insertion of shunt. Shunts, although live-saving, fail within two years, in 50% of cases. We hope to fund research which will change this. This however, is our long-term goal and in the immediate term there is also other vital work to do. In addition, to research we also:

  • Raise awareness of the condition,
  • provide training and support to front-line workers, inlcuding grants so that professionals working in the field can further their knowledge of hydrocephalus
  • provide sign-posting help to families. 

We are a user-led charity, which is staffed entirely by dedicated volunteers who give their time because they want to make a difference to the lives of children who battle hydrocephalus. Please do visit our website www.harrys-hat.org to find out more.
