Hopkins Hour Event Resources: 'New Technologies for Rehabilitation'

Thank you to everyone who joined the virtual Hopkins Hour live event on 17 September 2020 about 'New Technologies in Rehabilitation'.

Hosted by the Positive Environments and Communities Research Stream and presented by, Research Fellows Dr David Painter and Dr Camila Shirota, from The Hopkins Centre, with invited guest speaker Mr Micah Ching from G.tec Neurotechnology Hong Kong Limited.

The research event focused on virtual reality (VR) immersive 3D spatial perception simulation and how it can be applied to access and improve cognition in spatial neglect following stroke, as well as other revolutionary stroke therapies that use brain computer interfaces. We also heard from Dr Shirota about recent developments in exoskeleton technology that brings science fiction, a little closer to everyday reality.
