A survey involving 1,000 young children has shown that boys under five years old who watch television and use electronic devices over a long period of time, have higher body fat than girls who do the same. The study was conducted by the National University Health System (NUHS) from Dec 2011 to Feb 2019, and respondents included children who participated in the Growing Up in Singapore Towards Healthy Outcomes (GUSTO) study. Results show that screen-viewing was associated with greater skinfold thicknesses, but not with Body Mass Index or BP.

About 36 patients who are unable to walk independently due to neurological diseases are part of a study looking at the effectiveness of using exoskeletons in the rehabilitation process.

The Temasek Foundation – Improving Mobility via Exoskeletons (iMOVE) programme will study patient outcomes and assess the viability and potential of scaling up the use of robotic exoskeletons in rehabilitation care, from the hospital to the community. It will seek to improve the mobility and independence of patients suffering from conditions like strokes and spinal cord injuries, said Professor John Wong Eu Li, chief executive of the National University Health System (NUHS).

Three exoskeletons will be shared by NUHS' five partner sites: Alexandra Hospital, NTUC Health, St Luke's ElderCare and St Luke's Hospital and the Stroke Support Station.

NUHS is the first national health system in Asia to study how advanced exoskeleton technology can improve mobility and rehabilitation outcomes across the care system. A national task force to advance the knowledge and the use of technology in rehabilitation was also formed on 6 May.
