The future of wearables in health (Melbourne)

Wearables and sensing technologies within health and medical industries are ubiquitous. Join us to discuss current uses and imagine how healthcare can adopt wearables at scale.

Wearables and sensing technologies have great potential in a broad array of applications. They open up a universe of possibilities to find new meanings, solve new problems. 


Join us to discuss two of these applications and imagine new ones. 


Wenyue Zou will talk about low-cost personalised wearable UV sensor offering real-time sun exposure monitoring. Wenyue developed photo-active ink that can generate a unique colour response to specific UV wavelengths. Wenyue is featured as Innovators under 35 by MIT Technology Review and she is a researcher at RMIT University


Kristof De Mey will talk about a running (wearable) technology application called Lower Impact Runner, which combines sensor and music based sonifications to improve running styles, prevent injury and/or help in return to sport and physical activity.

Kristof is a business developer at Ghent University and its sports innovation consortium Victoris, where he is involved in various multi-disciplinary and university-industry collaborations.


And what about you? Which wearables you would like to see in the healthcare space? Let's explore them together during the session.
