Tecnalia is organizing an event on healthcare robotics addressed to companies working on this technology development.
The event will be held on 20 May, starting at 8:30 in the building they have in the Miramón technology park (Mikeletegi Pasalekua 2). It can be attended both in person and online and the language of the event will be English.
This event has been organised in the context of two European projects: DIH-HERO (Digital Innovation Hubs in Healthcare Robotics) and ReHyb (Rehabilitation Based on Hybrid Neuroprosthesis). The first is an independent platform which connects Digital Innovation Hubs across Europe to create a sustaining network for all those who are active in the healthcare robotics sector. The second is a European project consortium that is developing a hybrid upper limb exoskeleton that uses its own novel sensing and actuation capabilities to generate the user’s digital twin.
