The Royal Hospital for Neurodisability (RHN) in the UK has won two of the five awards from the United Kingdom Acquired Brain Injury Forum (UKABIF) for its innovation in the field of acquired brain injury.

The first award was handed to RHN in the category of “innovation by a clinician for the work undertaken by the Tracheostomy clinic”, for its Trache Clinic, while the second was for “the category innovation by a care provider”, for the work done by Technology Link Workers Project.

The Trache clinic was set up at the RHN for the long-term treatment of tracheostomy in patients with brain injury, aiming to maximise function and reduce risks for the patients.

The Technology Link Workers Project is designed to provide a link between the ward and the assistive technology team, to ensure that assistive technology improves the quality of life for disabled patients.

RHN head of speech and language therapy Sarah Haynes said that the Trache clinic allows the hospital to identify potential for improvements and transform them into reality.

“Assistive technology offers increased independence and an improved quality of life for individuals who are profoundly disabled as a result of a brain injury,” Haynes added.
