The Technology Partnership (TTP) has designed small noise-free air pumps to allow patients to carry on with daily life rather than staying in bed in hospital.
Their novel micropump combines a deep understanding of non-linear acoustic resonance, piezoelectric materials and fluid dynamics.
TTP is the winner of a 2012 Innovation Award from the Institute of Physics celebrating companies that make the most of applying physics in a commercial environment.
