Competition: wearable technology for injury prevention

Addressing injury prevention in service personnel by means of data science and technology




This Defence and Security Accelerator (DASA) competition seeks proposals for innovative methods to prevent injuries, including musculoskeletal injury (MSKI), environmental injury (heat and cold) and noise induced hearing loss (NIHL) in service personnel, through the use of wearable and / or nearable hardware and data science.

DASA is interested in technologies that can be trialled in a realistic military environment(s) within a 6 month contract, reaching a minimum of technology readiness level (TRL) 6 (technology model or prototype demonstration in a relevant environment) by the end of the phase.

This competition has up to £1 million available from which it is anticipated that a number of proposals will be funded. This is currently the only phase planned for this competition; though future funded activities may build on its outputs.

This competition is now open and closes at midday on 25 January 2019
