Light Saver

Light Saver and Metabolight

Metabolight is a team of engineers, scientists and doctors that have developed a new light-based technique to help diagnose and monitor the health of babies' brians. Detecting and monitoring brain activity is vital to help doctors treat babies in a harmless way with new technology that uses the properties of light. 

 


Metabolight and the Royal Academy of Engineering have worked together to create a series of STEM activities and practical teamwork challenges. These explore the role that engineers and scientists have in developing new technologies to save lives.
