Gwyddonwyr Cymru yn helpu i gadw ein bwyd yn iach, yn ddiogel ac yn gynaliadwy

Kirstie Goggin

Mae llawer o’r bwyd yn y DU yn dod drwy gadwyni cyflenwi sy’n aml yn gymhleth ac yn cynnwys nifer o gynhyrchwyr a phroseswyr o bedwar ban byd. Yn anffodus, gall hyn arwain at arferion anghyfreithlon a/neu anfoesol oherwydd gall rhai cynhwysion gael eu halogi gan ddifwynwyr neu eu caffael o ffynonellau annymunol. Mae enghreifftiau… Darllen mwy »

(English) Enhancing technology to improve patient care

Huntleigh Healthcare

Ymddiheurwn, nid ar gael yn y Gymraeg. Peripheral Arterial Disease (PAD) is the less well-known branch of cardiovascular disease which relates to the narrowing or obstruction of the arteries in the legs.

Rôl gwaddodion mewn aberoedd fel cronfa ar gyfer micro-organebau pathogenig (Cyflwyniad)

(English) Anthropogenic activity resulting from agriculture, storm water discharge and sewage treatment has a significant impact upon the transport of human microbial pathogens from catchment to coast. As the global climate changes and storm and flood events become more frequent, it is imperative that we understand how the increased flow of microbial pathogens from land to sea will affect human health and the environment.

Datblygu Rhaglen Bwyta’n Iach Food Dudes ar gyfer plant cyn-oed ysgol mewn meithrinfeydd, a’u teuluoedd yn y cartref (Safbwynt Academaidd)

(English) The KESS project was a development of an early year’s nursery intervention for children to learn to eat fruits and vegetables; it was undertaken in co-operation with our company partner Food Dudes. Food Dudes have award winning programmes proven to work with children who are in primary schools, however because we know that eating habits are established early on, we know that we should intervene as early as possible.

The KESS project was to develop an intervention for children who were about 2-3 years old and then pilot it in nurseries in the area. To my knowledge this is the only project of its kind that has successfully completed the research and immediately translated the results by the company into a commercially viable product, therefore an intervention that can be administered in nurseries nationwide.

Effeithiolrwydd cynnyrch goroesi Reflexcell i warchod pobl mewn amgylcheddau eithafol / Goblygiadau cynnyrch Reflexcell o ran iechyd pobl (Safbwynt Academaidd)

In the short term this research has helped Blizzard to understand how their products compare to other widely used products, like polythene survival bags. The research project has given the company some empirical evidence and some real numbers to help support their assertion that their product competes well against the best on the market.

In the long term, we are hoping that the emergency and armed services will look to adopt these products, so enabling them to better care for cold casualties in the field as a result of this research.

Datblygu Rhaglen Bwyta’n Iach Food Dudes ar gyfer plant cyn-oed ysgol mewn meithrinfeydd, a’u teuluoedd yn y cartref (Safbwynt Busnes)

(English) We got involved with KESS because we think it’s important to develop academic talent and help graduates learn about the process of bringing academic ideas to market. Academia is particularly important to us, because Food Dudes grew out of the School of Psychology at Bangor University under the leadership of the late Professor Fergus Lowe and Professor Pauline Horne. Although the programme itself had been in development for 20 years, it wasn’t until 2010-11 that Food Dudes started to become of particular interest to Public Health professionals around the UK, no doubt because of the public and media pressure to do something about the problem of obese children.

Since we span out the business in 2011/21, Food Dudes has become possibly one of the fastest growing social enterprises in the UK. That said, any support we can find for the project is warmly welcomed – hence our interest in KESS.
