Launch of Study - Using Exoskeleton Technology to Improve Rehabilitation from Hospital to Community

Media Events

Riding the healthcare innovation wave, we are pleased to have adopted three exoskeletons to study how advanced exoskeleton technology can improve mobility and rehabilitation care from hospital to community, under the 'Temasek Foundation - Improving Mobility via Exoskeletons (iMOVE) programme' supported by Temasek Foundation Cares and Trailblazer Foundation Limited.

The study, led by NUH Senior Consultant and Chief of Alexandra Hospital's Inpatient Rehabilitation Services, Dr Effie Chew, plans to recruit 400 patients and will focus on patients suffering from stroke and spinal cord injuries, especially for the elderly.

The three exoskeletons will be used at Alexandra Hospital as well as other partner sites including NTUC Health, St Luke's ElderCare, St Luke's Hospital - Singapore and Stroke Support Station - S3.
