Exhibition for biomedical engineering at InnoCarnival 2021
By Ir Prof Raymond TONG, Ir Cristina LEUNG, Ir Karon LO and Mr Arvin HUI

The BM Division participated in the InnoCarnival 2021 organised by the Innovation and Technology Commission (ITC) from 23 to 31 October 2021 at the Hong Kong Science Park. The booth echoed the theme “Innovate for a Bright Future” and showcased the latest medical equipment, including Hi-flow ventilators and AR-home rehabilitation systems, so visitors could learn more about innovations and how biomedical engineers can help in the fight against COVID-19. BM Division’s booth was supported by Vincent Medical, Gleneagles Hospital Hong Kong and the Department of Biomedical Engineering of The Chinese University of Hong Kong.


During the exhibition, Ir Prof Raymond Tong gave a live webinar on AR-home rehabilitation systems. He demonstrated the working principles and biomedical engineering technologies involved and showed how people with chronic diseases, stroke survivors, and the elderly can benefit from AR automated training systems with a therapist’s guidance.

 

As biomedical engineering gains increasing importance in the medical system, biomedical engineers’ role will become more significant which is why we wanted to let the public know more about biomedical engineers and their innovations. More than 500 visitors visited the booth during the event.
