A brief history

Research and Development at the University of Kent
University of Kent | School of Engineering and Digital Arts

In 1987, a local dental surgeon contacted the Medical Electronics Research Laboratory at the University of Kent. The surgeon wanted to objectively measure the effects of fitting palatal lift prostheses.

This led to the development of the Nasal-Oral Ratiometry System (NORS), which detected nasal and oral airflow during speech. Since then, the University of Kent has continued to research and develop new speech instrumentation.

Rose Medical Solutions Ltd. was founded in 2009 by Dr. Paul Dean Sharp, a former student of the university. The aim was to bring new speech instrumentation to market whilst providing sales and customer support.


Today our technology is used in over 70 countries worldwide.
