Elaros 24/7 Wins Prestigious Bionow Award

ELAROS 24/7, an innovative new service that improves the initial assessment, diagnosis and triaging of patients with Lower Urinary Tract Symptoms (LUTS), has won the Innovative Ageing of the Year Award at the Bionow Annual Awards 2013. 

ELAROS 24/7’s Deputy Chairman, Martin Levermore MBE collected the award, sponsored by MIMIT / Edwards Healthcare, at Bionow’s Annual Awards Dinner held on the evening of the 28 November 2013 at the Mere Golf Resort & Spa, Cheshire, attended by over 300 executives from across the biomedical sector. 

The event, which was hosted by Dr John Stageman OBE, Chair of Bionow and Dr Geoff Davison, CEO of Bionow, showcases the best of business growth, competitiveness and innovation within the biomedical and life science sectors across Northern England. 

ELAROS 24/7 has created a hand-held electronic bladder diary (the size of a smart phone) (UroDiary®) that captures patient data and an uploader that is deployed to clinicians’ desktop computers (UroUpload™) that extracts data from the UroDiary and transfers the information up to an algorithm (UroConnect®) that sits on NHS system (N3). The algorithm provides immediate, accurate, simple and intuitive clinical direction. 

The award comes at the end of year that saw the UroConnect secure CE mark as a medical device and Elaros 24/7 winning the Big Venture Challenge in May 2013. 

ELAROS 24/7, based at the Sheffield Digital Campus, was also shortlisted in September 2013 for The Annual Medical Innovation Competition in the Software and Telehealth category. 

Professor Paul O’ Brien, Chief Executive Office of ELAROS 24/7 said: “Winning this prestigious award caps a great first year for all those involved in and around the company since our market announcement at the NHS Expo at the Excel Centre in London in March 2013.”
