In just two days, MotusAcademy will be launching its first Thematic Webinar Series alongside some of the world’s foremost rehabilitation technology industry leaders. At 1600 Hrs (GMT +8) on 17th Feb 2022, MotusAcademy will kickstart the first of its four-part virtual seminar series.
The launch will be officiated by MotusAcademy’s President, Professor Robert Riener, from the Sensory-Motor Systems lab at the Department of Health Sciences and Technology, ETH Zurich. Professor Riener is also the founder and organiser of CYBATHLON – an international multi-sport event in which people with physical disabilities compete in carrying out daily tasks using state-of-the-art technical assistance systems.
The first webinar will take the form of a coffee chat with the speakers where audiences have the opportunity to join the speakers in sharing their journey, experience and insights revolving around the industry of rehabilitation. After the session, audiences will surely have a better grasp of the missions, visions and goals, as well as the challenges and barriers of the rehabilitation industry.
The webinar speaker line-up includes:
- Zen Koh, Co-founder and Group Deputy CEO of Fourier Intelligence – one of the world’s prominent developers in rehabilitation robotics solutions and technology.
- Gery Colombo, Healthcare and Technology Expert; Founding President (2011 – 2019) of International Industry Society in Advanced Rehabilitation Technology (IISART); Founder and Former CEO of Hocoma AG – global market leader in the development, manufacturing and marketing of robotic and sensor-based devices for functional movement therapy.
- Alexander Kollreider, CTO and Founder of Tyromotion – one of the world’s leading manufacturers and suppliers of technology-based therapy.
Subsequent webinars will tap into in-depth topics of the rehabilitation industry, for example, hand robotics, limb robotics, balance technologies, telerehabilitation, functional electrical stimulation and augmented reality (AR). These sessions will also feature engineers, academics and clinicians to share real-life experiences in working with rehabilitation. Through the sharing sessions, audiences can appreciate the interrelationships between the different roles in the rehabilitation industry.
Unlike a typical one-hour webinar with only the speakers delivering their materials, MotusAcademy promises to present a discussion platform for all parties interested in rehabilitation technology. With that, audiences will be able to pose questions throughout the webinar session. Apart from getting on-the-spot first-hand responses from the experts, those questions will be utilised as perceptive references for the planning of future webinars.
MotusAcademy is a dedicated platform for sharing knowledge in the field of advanced rehabilitation technology, including therapeutic robotics, assistive technologies and supporting technologies such as functional electrical stimulation and virtual reality. MotusAcademy is designed to support ongoing education and discussions between engineers, clinicians and researchers in the field of robotics technology. MotusAcademy’s affiliations include the IISART, CEN Academy and Masterclass in Neuro Technology (MiNT Concept) by Hobbs Rehabilitation.
