Hi! I'm Dane Carlson, and welcome to the Business Opportunities Weblog. I've been publishing this website, by myself, and sometimes with the help of others for over twelve years now. You'll notice two things about this site right away:
Paddy Mulcahy, 21, has been offered university support to develop the easy-clean U-neat unit which reduces the spread of potentially lethal infections from surface to person.
The all-in-one bedside table, locker and chairs has no corners, preventing the build-up of bacteria, and could dramatically cut the spread of health care acquired infections.
“The existing furniture is a breeding ground for bacteria,” he said.
“Too often people admitted to hospitals contract further serious illnesses.
“Going to hospital shouldn’t mean putting your health at greater risk.”
U-neat has won the Irish leg of the 2012 James Dyson award and now goes up against inventions from 18 other countries for the international young inventor’s prize.
