Seminar Title: Open Bionics: developing the world's first 3D printed multi-grip bionic hand
Open Bionics will showcase how they have been working with NHS England to provide low-cost multi-grip bionic hands to children and young people. This trial set out to improve the clinical experience of upper-limb amputees and test the functional and psychosocial advantages of using multi-grip bionic limbs. Open Bionics was awarded an NHS product development contract for their low-cost bionic hands - becoming the first healthcare system in the world to trial this new technology with patients as young as 8 years of age. This seminar will demonstrate how 3D printing can help innovate socket design, improving comfort for amputees, and radically reduce the cost of advanced myoelectric prosthetic hands.

Seminar Title: Early detection of social isolation
The Sensara Homecare is lifestyle monitoring. With a couple of sensors in the home of a senior person living alone Sensara Homecare detects changes in behaviour that can result in health risks. Our self-learning algorithm is based on 15 years of scientific research. The system can also identify when there are visitors and the time spend outside. Combining those two indicators we determine when social activity is declining. In the seminar specific cases for detection of social isolation in which municipalities, care organisations and insurance companies join forces will be presented.
