The health award, won by Unhindr, aims to find innovations that improve physical and/or mental health for Londoners, reduce waste and make the health sector more sustainable includes a £20,000 prize to support the development of the innovation. Unhindr is developing a soft robotic liner coined Roliner for prosthetics which uses AI to adapt to subtle changes in the shape of the limb throughout the day to address the issue of inflexible prosthetic limb fitting which often leaves amputees in pain from pressure sores and other soft tissue damage.
