Leuchie are partnering with several projects who are using AI and robotics to develop a system to detect urinary tract infections early on, a robotic rehabilitation glove and a service robot.

University of Edinburgh, Heriot-Watt University, Leuchie and Blackwood Homes and Care

Our partnership is working on the National Robotarium's FEATHER project where we have the vision to enable wellbeing and prevent death by spotting and identifying early indicators of urinary tract infections (UTIs). We aim to develop a user-centred system for early recognition of UTIs. In July 2023, several of our guests, care and nursing staff took part in a focus group, which is the first phase of user-centred design.

Heriot-Watt University and Leuchie

A spin out from the National Robotarium at Heriot-Watt University, Robobrico are developing a service-robot and a few of Leuchie's guests gave input to the requirements specification in 2022.  The robot looks to fill a gap in the health and social care assistive technology market, by providing an affordable and highly customisable platform catered to customer needs through co-design.  

We are keen to collaborate with more research projects in the future, getting our guests involved in early trials, and initiate our own Leuchie guest research group where we come up with research ideas, co-design with our interested guests, and approach partners to develop solutions. Contact:
