Two Biomedical Engineering Seminars at Innocarnival 2017


By Ms Azura CHOI and Mr Will LEUNG


        The “InnoTalk” seminar series was one of the spotlighted events of InnoCarnival 2017. To echo with the theme “Live Smart - Be Innovative”, Biomedical Division was invited to give two public seminars on 28 October 2017.


        The first seminar was delivered by Ir Prof Raymond TONG of Chinese University of Hong Kong on the topic “Exoskeletion Robotics for People with Disability”. Ir Prof Tong shared inspiring stories and experiences from his research on the neurochemistry of rat and human stroke model, and how smart robotics facilitate the recovery of motor skills of stroke patients. In order to make the seminar more vivid, he brought along his innovations: an Electroencephalography (EEG) driven robotic hand, and an ankle robot for stroke patients with foot drop to the seminar. The audience enjoy his sharing on the innovation of rehabilitation technologies and was keen on interacting with Ir Prof TONG.


        The second seminar “Biomedical Engineering – Excellence in Technology Innovation and Application” was conducted by Mr Cheer LEE and Ms Suye WONG, who recently completed their HKIE Scheme “A” training in Electrical and Mechanical Services Department and embarked on their path to become professional biomedical engineers. They introduced the roles and career prospects of Biomedical Engineers working in different fields. They also envisioned application of edge-cutting technologies in the medical field, including Augmented Reality (AR), Virtual Reality (VR), Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Big Data, which became the highlight of the talk and aroused great interest from the floor. The audience showed immense interest in the career path and requirements of becoming a professional engineer in Hong Kong.
