Health Workforce Innovations in Response to the COVID Pandemic
Autonomous and Semi-autonomous Systems for Healthcare Delivery
Speed, efficiency and optimization of delivery of healthcare services
Technologies that incorporate robotics, wearable devices, and intelligent systems have excellent potential to meet emerging healthcare demands, especially as related to social distancing regulations imposed by COVID-19. New intelligent and autonomous system technologies for robot-assisted surgery and therapy will reduce the risk of viral spread and facilitate safe care and medical interventions within the healthcare systems of Alberta and Canada by making interventions more efficient, accurate, accessible, and reliable. Our research addresses this pressing need for innovative technologies by performing research on robotics, telehealth, healthcare technologies and human-machine interaction.
