Introducing Robotics for Innovative Rehabilitation


Collaborating with the Neurorehabilitation and Robotics Laboratory of The Chinese University of Hong Kong, Lee Quo Wei Day Rehabilitation and Care Centre (LQW) introduced four innovative rehabilitation devices for clinical research: (1) the “Hand of Hope”, (2) an Interactive Exoskeleton Ankle Robot, (3) an Interactive Functional Electrical Stimulation Cycling System, and (4) an Augmented Reality Rehabilitation Training System.

The “Hand of Hope” was firstly brought into use in December 2018, off­ering training for hand control and coordination. The innovative approach for clinical rehabilitation helps reduce the risk of frailty in elderly, thus benefiting users.

Tsang Shiu Tim Home for the Elderly (TST Home) also participated in a research of the School of Rehab Sciences of The Hong Kong Polytechnic University, which studied the relationship between light exposure and major neurocognitive disorder in dementia patients, investigating a new direction of service.

The Society stepped up close exchange and cooperation with academia and continued to introduce innovative technology to enhance the service, in preparation for the launch of the “Personalized, Holistic and Integrative Rehabilitation Care Project” later this year.
