Future technologies for neuro-rehabilitation
Dr Andrew McDaid recently hosted international robotics and AI experts Dr Arun Jayaraman and Professor Jim Patton, from the number one-ranked rehabilitation hospital in the US – the Shirley Ryan AbilityLab. A public lecture was held last month at the University of Auckland. A project funded by the Royal Society of New Zealand Catalyst Fund, is enabling this international collaboration. The collaboration involves knowledge exchange, joint projects, shared resources and facilities, as well as access to new markets for New Zealand researchers and companies. Dr Jayaraman said the clinical work being done at Auckland University is some of the best in the world and he is learning from researchers here to inform best practice.
