Moor founder starts to develop his own laser Doppler prototype

Inspired by earlier publications, Oxford Lecturer Dr David (Dave) Boggett applied his existing laser research interests to laser Doppler. Dave started offering prototype systems for research use by colleagues. One of the first to use similar equipment in clinical trials was Dr Rodney Gush of Manchester who would eventually join Moor in a scientific role. Dave published a number of technical papers over the next 10 years with academic colleagues; clinical papers were published by Rodney and colleagues at Hope Hospital, Salford. The defining publication of this period was Boggett, Blond & Rolfe “Laser–Doppler measurements of blood flow in skin tissue.” in the Journal of Biomedical Engineering 1985. Both Dave and Rodney still play active roles at Moor today.
