The Redistributed Manufacturing in Healthcare Network (RiHN)

Who we are..

Redistributed Manufacturing (RDM) in healthcare involves moving production closer to the point-of-care, helping clinicians to deliver better outcomes through medical products, technologies and therapies that are available on-demand and tailored to patient needs.
The UK EPSRC first funded the RiHN in Feb 2015 and a cross-disciplinary team of six universities delivered pioneering feasibility studies and a comprehensive white paper to guide future research and investment.
Following a new award commencing in July 2020, the team has grown and the Network now seeks to fund novel applications of RDM for use in challenging mobile environments, supporting the practice of humanitarian, military and emergency medical care.
