How the social robots can play role in the spectrum of innovative healthcare? – Presented by Amit Kumar Pandey, SoftBank Robotics, at the Health Tech Event, on January 31, 2018, at MECC Maastricht, The Netherlands. Read the interview.

Never before in the history of robotics, social robots have been so close to us, in our society. We are ‘evolving’, so as our society, lifestyle and the needs. AI and Robotics together are converging towards creating a smarter, happier and healthier eco-system of living. The first part of the talk will reinforce that such social robots have a range of potential societal applications in healthcare and therapy, and that as a robotics industry, SoftBank Robotics’ R&D and Innovation is around the centrality of wellbeing of people. The second part will present the feedback and needs from the real users, and will highlighting some of the immediate R&D directions. The talk will conclude with some open challenges ahead, including social and ethical issues and emphasize on the greater need of a bigger and multidisciplinary effort.

Technology and care: the impact of use of exoskeleton for patients – Presented by Lieven De Maesschalck, Mobilab, at the Health Tech Event, on January 31, 2018, at MECC Maastricht, The Netherlands. Read the interview

The presentation with give an overview about the use of exoskeletons for patients. As introduction we start with a short description about the to walk again foundation, founded in 2003 by paraplegic former Iron Man triathlon champion Marc Herremans and his coach. His mission was to make disability sports & related rehabilitation services accessible to all. “Getting human capital out of their wheelchairs” “Because inactivity paralyzes both mind and body”. So now we are taking the next step: TWA-Post Rehabilitation Centres. An initiative by the To Walk Again Foundation, Orthopedie Van Haesendonck, AZ Herentals and Mobilab@ThomasMore. With this brand new initiative we want to set the standard for accessible, stimulating and progressive post-rehabilitation services through sports and exercise – pairing medical technology with expert medical and academic support. This presentation will give an overview of the activities already done and planned. This lecture gives information over the impact of the use  off exoskeloton on Qualitiy of Live and this in a two years follow-up study. There will be also a demo with the exoskeleton.
