Designing cool stuff, with great people, in a nice place.


How we work

We are a research led, innovation and design collabortion centre run be the faculty of Science and Technology at Middlesex University, London.

redLoop is driven by collaborative innovation. We work with research teams and form project groups to develop and deliver projects that increase the potential and impact of the University’s work for internal and external partners, networks and clients.

We provide opportunities for students to gain experience in a unique working environment, with leading edge design and innovation practice, delivered with the insight of educators.

We develop professional competence and employability potential through projects, placements and internships.

If you would like to discuss how we might work together, or you are interested in a placement or internship then please get in touch.


Some selected recent projects.

Realtime, non-invasive lung imaging for COVID-19 patients
Preterm Neonate / neonatal Embedded Universal Microelectronic wearable Acquisition For Cardio Respiratory Intensive Therapy (PNEUMACRIT)
