Autumn 2018 – Summer 2019
We have commenced our greatest project yet – to raise over £¼ million to buy a Lithotripter. This state of the art machine uses shock-waves to break down kidney stones, bezoars [stone like balls in the gastric system] or gall stones under 20cm in size into small crystals which pass out of the body in the urine. Anaesthesia is not needed as no incision or internal telescopic device is required. Patients remain awake and return home the same day. It will be sited in the Urology Unit at Eastbourne District General Hospital so that residents of East Sussex suffering from ‘stones’ can benefit from this non-invasive procedure.
A mathematician could say
No incision + no anaesthetic = no stone + no hospital stay : Win Win
We need your help as a volunteer to assist in fund-raising and events. A programme has been provisionally arranged for the charity's current year, but may be changed or ex panded so please keep checking this page on a regular basis - thank you.
British 10K Run – Sunday 15 July 2018
Our first event was launched by 12 volunteers who ran for Medi Tech Trust in the British 10K Run. Despite 27-28°C temperatures, they pounded the streets of London and all finished with better than expected times.
If you know of any other events that Medi Tech Trust should arrange, please contact us.
