Roles and Responsibilities

Dr Yang Wei is the Associate Professor in Wearable Technologies at the Department of Engineering, Nottingham Trent University, and the lead of smart wearable research (SWR) group. He has been working in the field of wearable technologies over 12 years and his research interests include wearable medical textiles, MedTech, digital healthcare, smart sensors, functional materials and additive manufacturing.

He is the principal investigator on an EPSRC project, focusing on the development of wearable sleeves to revolutionise the treatment of lymphoedema, and a MedTech project aiming to develop a wearable sensor for monitoring Tuberculosis (TB) infections in both human and animals; co-investigator on a NIHR project to develop a wearable respiratory sensor that provides remote monitoring of respiration continuously. He was also the principal investigator on an innovate project that developed a smart wound dressing which monitors the infection variation during the healing of chronic wounds (e.g. leg ulcers). In addition, he was involved in a range of wearable MedTech projects for stroke rehabilitation, cardiovascular monitoring, brain activity analysis and cancer detection.
