Innovations in Neurological Rehabilitation
28th February 2019 @ 5:30 pm - 8:30 pm
We live in a time when automation and artificial intelligence are set to become more and more integrated into every aspect of our lives. These changes have the potential to drastically affect every one of us. Healthcare will not be immune to these developments even if most health care professionals may be somewhat sheltered from the wider international picture of technology development and adoption.
Internationally, whilst rehabilitation technologies are becoming firmly established, the UK has been slower to adopt these new assistive tools. There are practical reasons – cost, complexity, ideology, accessibility, technology integration as well as the natural fear of people being replaced by robots.
It is therefore important for clinicians to understand that technology is not a threat but an opportunity to improve health and working conditions. Forward thinking clinicians are unlikely to be replaced by assistive technology, but technology will be another tool in the belt to improve outcomes and make treatment safer and more efficient. Let us show you how that can work.
