How can we change health with internet connected devices and objects? What can it tell us about the way we live and what we can change for better health?
The Internet of Things brings tracking, monitoring, sensing and remotely commanding the world around us from a far-fetched 'future' concept to here and now reality. In healthcare, this gives us the capabilities to re-imagine the everyday objects we interact with as healthcare devices - to tell us about positive and negative behaviour, to monitor our physiology and tell us about changes in our bodies and to help us make healthy choices in the way we live.
Come along and join the discussion - as always we've got this topic covered by a number of engaging presenters and a demo, and the usual opportunity to talk to the thinkers, makers and doers in health technology and innovation in Sydney.
Our speakers for the evening will be:
- Treffyn Koreshoff Masters student at UTS designing an Internet of Things for healthy ageing at home. He'll be talking us through taking a human centred approach to the design of smart health objects in the home, and a few techniques of how to go about that. He'll share the results from our studies of how older people understand interconnected technologies, and what their preferences are in using connected devices.
- Andrew Stone Founder of OzBerryPi; Sydney's Open Source hardware maker space.
- Ewan Le Bouris Founder at SAFE MATE Australia. A waterproof wristband linked to your emergency data http://www.safema...
