Robotics for Frailty Challenge – 28th September 2022

EMERGENCE Healthcare Technologies Network+ Robotics for Frailty Challenge

The EPSRC EMERGENCE Healthcare Technologies Network+ project has been set up to foster innovative research and facilitate the development of healthcare robotic solutions so that they can be realised as pragmatic and sustainable, providing personalised, affordable and inclusive health and social care in the community.

The Network+ project has been running workshops with people who live with the experience of frailty, along with clinical and care providers, to gain a greater understanding of the current health and social care challenges associated with this area.  This work has helped highlight some of the actions required to inspire new, novel research and enable engineers to develop appropriate healthcare robotics solutions.

This public facing hybrid event will provide the opportunity to find out more about this work and will focus on tackling frailty and the facilitation of healthcare robots from labs into service.  We welcome people to join us on Wednesday the 28th September from 13:00 – 16:00 in person or online.  Please click here to register.
