Collaboration with University Malaya seeking to advance rehabilitation technology research

MALAYSIA, June 22, 2021 Global rehabilitation technology organisation, Fourier Intelligence is now in collaboration with the internationally recognised University Malaya Medical Centre (UMMC) on advancing research on rehabilitation technology to make it more clinically applicable with localisation. This collaboration will further develop current solutions to be more effective and versatile within the rehabilitation technology industry.

The MOU (Memorandum of Understanding) signing event with Fourier Intelligence, held virtually on 22nd June, aligns UMMC’s mission towards driving excellence in clinical research, empowering human capital, and uplifting healthcare-related institutions. With this joint effort, more innovative solutions will be developed.

“In the last five years, rehabilitation medicine practice has heavily utilised technology as part of our clinical service. It encompasses clinical work in motor recovery neurorehabilitation, structured cognitive rehabilitation, spinal cord injury rehabilitation, innovative exercise prescription, prosthesis and orthosis prescription, gait analysis and training, and musculoskeletal treatment approaches. With this new collaboration with Fourier Intelligence, we hope to expand our capabilities and expertise in robotic rehabilitation. It can only lead us both towards a higher level of medical frontier and improve human health which is the core of our interest. Thank you to Mr Zen Koh and Fourier Intelligence for this collaboration, as we look forward to joining a network of world-class collaborators in robotic rehabilitation and advances in robotic technology,” said Professor Nazirah Hasnan.
