Overview

Good Boost delivers therapeutic aquatic exercise and rehabilitation for musculoskeletal conditions in public swimming pools. This is made up of a group therapeutic activity programme that is individually tailored to supporting musculoskeletal conditions using an app that can be accessed on waterproof tablets. This team was supported by the Transform Ageing Programme (https://www.swahsn.com/transform-ageing/) supported by the Innovation Exchange and delivered by the Design Council and UnLtd.“We are excited to support these companies through the early stages of product development and to help ensure that their innovations find their way into our hospitals as quickly as possible. All of these projects have the potential to have a significant impact on patient outcomes and to alleviate cost and time pressures on the NHS. Fast-tracking their development should therefore be welcome news for both patients and clinicians alike.” SBRI Healthcare
