Work with us

Through collaborative research, we can work with you to develop innovative products, services and systems in the health and wellbeing sector.

ATiC is a partner in the Accelerate project which helps innovators in Wales turn their ideas into solutions. Whether you have an idea for a healthcare technology but aren’t sure what steps to take next, you are in business and looking to expand your product range, or you are an allied health professional who has spotted a smart way to improve a process – we want to work with you.

Rather than providing funding or grants, the programme offers access to the academic expertise, in-depth understanding of the life sciences eco-system and cutting-edge facilities. Accelerate is a pioneering collaboration between three of Wales’ universities and the Life Sciences Hub Wales.

ATiC is a research centre with expertise and experience in user-centred design, user-experience evaluation and analysis, 3D data and motion capture, as well as prototyping in a range of materials.

Facilities

Here at ATiC we have invested significantly in our facilities and infrastructure to create the best possible environment for the UK’s leading academia and public and private Life Science and healthcare organisations to flourish.

Within the ATiC UX Lab we offer a comprehensive range of biometric and psychophysiological ways of measuring User Experience.

A range of industry standard scanning solutions for the accurate scanning and measuring of the body, objects and spatial environments. With the ability to use this information to model, analyse and also realise in virtual reality.

Our range of workshops and facilities allow us to prototype and finish in a vast range of materials. Including rapid 3D prototyping in many materials, such as plastic, carbon fibre, wax and resin, to suit all applications.
