Sponsored by:

One Nucleus and Cambridge Wireless are delighted to present this latest collaborative event, the third in a very successful and well regarded series. Based upon previous experience and feedback from attendees, the event will follow the highly participative facilitated workshop format. We have found that the group environment allows time for contributions from everyone who has knowledge, experience or a point of view to share.

This full-day will commence with a selection of presentations in the morning session followed by four facilitated workshops on the following themes, exploring the main aspects addressing the market today and in the future. For this event the four workshop themes are:


08.45 - Registration & Networking over Tea and Coffee

09.30 - Introduction from Harriet Fear, One Nucleus and Rob Blake, Cambridge Wireless

09.40 - Welcome from the Sponsor, Mick Withers, Sagentia

09.50 - Theme A: Wireless Sensors in a Healthcare R&D Environment
Mick Withers, Sagentia
Prof Chris Lowe, University of Cambridge

10.20 - Theme B: Assisted Living – ‘The Remote Carer’
Richard Curry, SEHTA

10.50 - Coffee/Tea & Networking

11.20 - Theme C: Health Related Robotics

11.50 - Theme D: The Future of Patient Monitoring
Philips Healthcare

12.20 - Lunch Break & Networking

13.30 - Workshop Session 1 – Delegates will have the opportunity to attend one of the following workshops:

WORKSHOP A - Wireless Sensors in a Healthcare R&D Environment
Often wireless technology including sensors is debated in the context of healthcare. This theme will explore the role wireless sensing technologies can play in medical research and development. We will cover innovative technologies ranging from basic patient monitoring to in-vivo targeted drug delivery.

WORKSHOP B - Assisted Living – ‘The Remote Carer’
The place of wireless sensors in a home or social care setting is beginning to be better understood and is focused on assisting the infirm or chronically ill to take an active part in managing their own health or enabling health professionals to monitor patients at a distance. This theme will explore how these technologies impact on the carer, both formal and informal and how recent government announcements will affect the uptake of telehealth.

WORKSHOP C - Health Related Robotics
Health related robotics is transforming the way healthcare can be delivered. Entire ICUs can be monitored from the other end of the world, patients can be diagnosed via webcam, ‘smart’ prosthetics allow patients to live a normal life and surgeons can even perform operations remotely. This theme looks at what the role of wireless sensing might be in the emerging field of health robotics.

WORKSHOP D - The Future of Patient Monitoring
We are beginning to see an increase in the remote monitoring of patients. This has the potential to improve hospital efficiency through earlier patient discharge and may also reduce stress and inconvenience by the observation of those discharged from hospital whilst back in their own home. In addition current healthcare reforms are changing the reimbursement model for hospitals, especially focused on readmission rates, which is expected to see a benefit of remote monitoring as well.

14.30 - Comfort break/Delegates move to a second workshop group

14.40 - Workshop Session 2 – Delegates will attend a second workshop
