Delivering innovative technology solutions to support people with long-term conditions, preserving their dignity and independence.

Devices for Dignity (D4D) Healthcare Technology Co-operative is a nationwide initiative funded by the National Institute for Health Research to drive forward innovative new products, processes and services to help people with long-term conditions.

D4D is hosted by Sheffield Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust and focuses on the identification of unmet patient needs and the design, development, evaluation and adoption of medical devices to address these needs.

D4D's scope spans clinical conditions and age-ranges and aims to help people regain the control over their lives which is often lost when dealing with chronic conditions.

With a focus on dignity and independence D4D works across three related sub-themes:
