Lotus Eldercare attended 2016 Elder Care Asia in Kaohsiung, Taiwan. The fair showcases some services on eldercare in Asia together with eldercare conferences. We were able to link up with a few like-minded Taiwanese enterprise there as well, in the field of telemonitoring, on cloud platforms and other eldercare related technologies. Here are some photos from the event:
I was honoured to be interviewed by Max over the topic on future care possibilities. While investment has been poured towards building new nursing homes and aged care facilities, my idea is to allow technology to facilitate our seniors to continue to live their lives in the place they have been. I do believe that this can be achieve through the use of robotics and smart home initiatives. We can focus on each ADL difficulties faced by the elderly and target each and every disability with the use of robots and on cloud technology.
Lotus Eldercare team visited this year's H.C.R. 2016 expo in Tokyo Big Sight, Japan this October 2016. There are many eye popping technologies, products and home furnishings on exhibition. I have no idea where to start or where to end but it was indeed an eye opener with all the innovations on show.
A while ago, I was roped into advising and suggesting how Internet of Things can support the flow of healthcare data to achieve a more global access. Here is an attempt to create an open source platform for the technologist to reference on: https://github.com/OpenIoMeT/Iomet-wiki/wiki
I am sharing my user story I have written for EIR here. Feel free to have a look at my dream of what IOT can support clinician and patient to achieve a seamless flow of data cross borders. Here is our milestones: https://github.com/OpenIoMeT/Iomet-wiki/milestone/2
The EIR Story
Lotus Eldercare Technologies, as a wannabe Tech set up as well, has been involved in or planning to be involve in some of the currently technology competitions and funding exercises available. We have participated in a few the the past and current grant calls. Here is a list to share with you!
It is actually not very complex (to me at least) and people around the world has been developing robots that can help elderly go about in their daily lives. I have been involved in robotic developments and one group is actually going overseas for a prestigious robotic competition.
So what exactly does robots in aged care do?
