The School will be exhibiting cutting-edge technology and research at the largest science festival in the UK, New Scientist Live, between 7 and 9 October at ExCeL London.
Voted as the most popular feature at New Scientist Live 2022, Hospital of the Future will invite visitors to explore the School’s mission to engineer better health through immersive VR journeys, live guided tours and interactive displays of healthcare engineering research.
Visitors can become immersed in a virtual heart, control surgical robots, use novel ultrasound imaging techniques to see inside the human body and see how pacemakers are implanted onto the heart, along with other inventive exhibits.
“New Scientist Live is an opportunity for our School to practically show the public our mission to engineer better health through cutting-edge technological advancements. Following the success of our exhibit in 2022, we have been invited to the festival once again to share our journey of innovating for patient benefit, and to give viewers insight into the procedures performed by our healthcare professionals,” said Head of School, Professor Sebastien Ourselin.
Medical device company Medtronic have partnered with the School to exhibit their Stealth Autoguide™ Cranial robotic guidance platform. Said Mr Narendra Gogna from Medtronic, "Stealth Autoguide™ cranial robotic guidance platform accurately aligns a neurosurgeon’s surgical plans for cranial procedures. Continuous real-time visualization, feedback, and robotically-assisted movement allow neurosurgeons to quickly and accurately align their pre-operative surgical plans safely and precisely."
Siemens has also partnered with the School and will be showcasing their 3D Visualisation Software.
The School will be showcasing 13 demonstrations delivered by over 100 staff and students throughout the three-day New Scientist Live event.
The Hospital of the Future exhibition will showcase the extensive scope of education and research carried out at the School and highlight the enduring collaborations with industry and hospitals to engineer better health.
