Why should I collaborate with
The MiNT Academy?

  • Collaborative network including a clinical user group
  • Clinical partners in your research trials
  • Impartial feedback from patients and clinicians
As a market leader in technology application, Hobbs Rehabilitation began working closely with companies to help design, develop and research devices, providing companies with the clinical expertise needed to make their products more effective and marketable. 
Through our work with engineers, researchers and product developers, we recognised there was often a disconnect between device development and actual application in clinical practice. Our experience tells us that this is due to a number of factors, including a lack of clinician training, insufficient evidence and disjointed networks for collaboration. 
We believe that collaborations are essential, and must be built upon mutual understanding and a shared ethos.
Hobbs prides itself on being impartial and not simply working with one company and their devices. In order to maintain this equity of service, especially as requests for this involvement increased, we developed a structure for companies in the form of Clinical Consultancy Packages.

There are 3 stages with which we collaborate with companies interested in working with the MiNT Academy.  Following an initial email discussion ( the process is:

Step 1 – video call
This is a free 1 hour introductory video call with up to 3 clinicians. It allows Hobbs to learn more about the product, whilst the company will also receive some
initial feedback.

Step 2 – in-person clinician product demo
This is a half day with 4 clinicians where the company can demonstrate their device and will receive expert clinical feedback.
Step 3 – Clinical Consultancy Package
At the point of purchasing a Clinical Consultancy Package, a company officially becomes a licenced MiNT member. There are different levels of membership, each with the flexibility for bespoke services, depending on the company requirements, which are detailed below.
