Mihir Sheth has prior experience in medical device development having worked at a medtech startup in the USA, and as an Oxford Global Insight Fellow. He firmly believes that healthcare innovations should be need-pull and not the tech-push methods commonly seen in healthcare.
Mihir joined BUBBL in 2022 to look at the efficacy of Oxygen Nanobubbles as a potential treatment for patients with chronic respiratory diseases
Mihir uses Need-Led Innovation for impactful healthcare innovation. He has immersed himself in hospitals in Kenya, Senegal, India and the UK to develop and implement solutions with and for healthcare professionals. His development of a medical device to improve the respiratory muscle strength for patients on the ventilator led to him being named as one of the 2021/22 Young Innovator Award by InnovateUK and The Prince’s Trust.
Mihir is working as part of a multidisciplinary team with Prof. Stride to study the clinical impact of using Oxygen Nanobubbles to improve the efficacy of oxygen delivery to tissues of patients with chronic respiratory diseases.
