TLT wins Political and Public Life Innovation Award
12 February 2013
Dr Sandeep Shah and Nita Shah, the founders and Directors of
Tarilian Laser Technologies (TLT), were presented with the prestigious
2013 Innovation Award at the Asian Voice Political and Public Life
Awards Ceremony held at The Houses of Parliament on 7 February.
The award was presented by the Rt Hon Ed Davey,
Secretary of State for Energy and Baroness Boothroyd, Former Speaker
of the House of Commons, in recognition of TLT’s technological
innovation and outstanding achievements.
TLT has invented a completely novel method of
measuring blood pressure based on a small optical sensor that
outperforms the current “gold standard” for measuring blood pressure
and effectively makes the older technology obsolete.
The sensor system allows
direct measurement of blood pressure without a cuff within seconds
and also generates a continuous beat-to-beat blood pressure
measurement and other 'haemodynamic' data.
The technology will give clinicians a much
improved toolset for monitoring, diagnosing and treating patients
suffering from a wide range of diseases and makes it possible to put
blood pressure sensing technology into a completely new range of
devices such as mobile phones and clothing.
Last year TLT announced the development of a
ground-breaking early research prototype for a foetal heart
monitoring sensor and a breakthrough in the detection of white coat
hypertension using the company’s Sapphire sensor.
The potential of the
technology was also recognised by leading medical institutions, with
the formation of a clinical research consortium with the William
Harvey Research Institute, Oxford University, Barts and The London
School of Medicine and Dentistry, Queen Mary University of London
and Imperial College, London.

Commenting on the Award, Dr Sandeep Shah, CEO
of The Tarilian Group stated: “This is indeed a great honour for TLT
and reflects the powerful potential of our technology and the hard
work and superior skills of our very strong international management
team led by Nita Shah. This award represents a recognition of our
achievements so far and we are continuing to develop our
ground-breaking technology and conduct further medical research on
its widespread medical applications.”
