Event build.well.being at the St. Pölten UAS, 14 June 2019
With participants from various universities such as the MIT in Boston, the Tallinn University of Technology, and the St. Pölten UAS: the 3rd edition of the network event build.well.being is dedicated to visions and innovations in digital healthcare. In addition to workshops regarding digitalisation, international experts talk about the latest research developments and students from the European region Danube-Moldova present their projects.
Workshops, Lectures, Networking
In the morning, hands-on workshops give a practical insight into current developments – for instance into the application of Motion Capturing, i.e. the digital recording and evaluation of movement in rehabilitation, or the use of Augmented Reality applications which provide patients with information. In addition, Text Mining algorithms for processing medical data are available for testing as well.
In the afternoon, international pioneers and entrepreneurs report on the development of sensory prostheses, medical-technical further education platforms and the analysis of data sets for assessing HIV risks. Keynote speaker is Brian Anthony from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) or, more precisely, the Medical Electronic Device Realization Center, who talks about the development of medical devices at the MIT.
“Professionals from the healthcare sector exchange ideas with technical developers, applied research and student projects are presented, established companies meet start-ups: the network event build.well.being brings together students, teachers and people working in the field of digital healthcare to explore innovations and their further development”, says Jakob Doppler, head of the study programme Digital Healthcare and researcher at the Center for Digital Health Innovation which organises the event.
Easier Bedside Patient Care and Storytelling Chatbots for Health Monitoring: Students Present their Projects
After the lectures, students of universities of applied sciences of the European Region Danube-Moldova present their projects. Within the framework of the study programme Digital Healthcare at the St. Pölten UAS, experts from the fields of healthcare and technology jointly work on technological innovations for the healthcare sector.
The presented projects include a child-friendly Augmented Reality learning platform for health topics, a tele-rehabilitation platform developed at the St. Pölten UAS, a portable sensor intended to reduce the risk of falls in patients with dementia, an app which supports patients after gastrointestinal surgery with information on recovery by using Amazon’s Alexa software, and a more user-friendly nurse call system.
The event build.well.being 2019 takes place in cooperation with Zukunftsakademie Mostviertel and the European Region Danube-Moldova. Partners are mobility.builders, ecoplus / Technopol Krems / International Center for Health Technology, and the Europa-Forum Wachau.
