Workshop #1 Augmenting motor rehabilitation – Application of motion capturing, virtual reality & 3D ultrasound imaging in clinical practice
Brian Horsak (AT), Senior Researcher and Co-Lead Center for Digital Health Innovation, St. Pölten UAS & Mark Simonlehner (AT), Researcher Department of Health, St. Pölten UAS
This workshop will give a brief overview and insight into emerging technologies in motor rehabilitation and will allow attendees to practically put these to test. Motion Capturing: to evaluate movement disorders three-dimensional (3D) motion capturing techniques represent the gold standard in neuro-orthopedic clinical practice. This technology allows to collect 3D quantitative information about the mechanics of the musculo-skeletal system. Virtual Reality: the combination of real-time motion capturing techniques and immersive virtual reality offers huge potential to move motor rehabilitation to the next level. Medical imaging: Simple 2D Ultrasound (US) imaging has been successfully used as a low-cost and non-invasive medical imaging tool to assist clinicians during their medical decision-making process. Recent advances in computer science and technology now allow to transform these simple 2D US images into 3D space by combing motion capturing techniques with simple US technology.
Workshop #2 Create engaging Healthcare Experiences with Augmented Reality – From Design to App Development
Andreas Jakl (AT), Senior Lecturer St. Pölten UAS & Anna Runefelt (SE/SVN), Founder of Nordic Art Initative & Healthcare visualization initiative Art with a Bigger purpose
Would you like to try hands-on how to create your first Augmented Reality app? In this session, you will see how easy it is to use 3D technologies and automated speech processing (through Amazon Sumerian) to explain healthcare-related topics. The session is defined for health professionals with little or no prior experience in app design, who would love to share their knowledge with new didactic methods. Additionally, we will provide a behind-the-scenes look on the use case “Enlightening Patients with Augmented Reality” within the funded research project “Immersive Media Lab”.
We live in a world where imagery is a vital part of our way of communicating. Successful brands don’t just sell their products, they encourage consumers to adopt a certain lifestyle. Choosing the right color in design and advertising projects plays a very important role in the success of visual campaigns. What if we spent some more effort in discovering how imagery and design could be useful in a healthcare setting, to positively aid patients and bring fourth well-being. Anna Runefelt will be presenting visual material from the project ‘Art with a Bigger Purpose’, where Nordic Art Initiative and collaborating artists created site-specific installations at The University Children’s Hospital in Slovenia, spanning an area of over 360 square meters making use of empty hospital space and interacting with the immediate surroundings through art and AR.
Workshop #3 (Medical) Text Mining
Markus Bertl (AT/EST), Student St. Pölten UAS, Senior Business Analyst at Unisys Austria & CTO of Diagnostic Match
Intelligent systems driven by machine learning and artificial intelligence are making entire enterprises smarter. This is creating a huge potential for industries, especially for the healthcare sector. Since 80% of business-generated information is still “dark” enterprises are left with very little visibility into what’s happening in this vast pool of data. That’s why this workshop focuses on giving an overview of how text mining and cognitive services can help to generate knowledge out of this data lake. We will explore IBM’s Watson platform and the connected services for text mining in a hands-on workshop and an open round to discuss possible use cases.
Workshop #4 HL7 FHIR for Beginners – Im Getting FHIRed up!
Oliver Krauss & Emmanuel Helm, both HL7 Austria Members and Senior Researchers at Upper Austria UAS Campus Hagenberg
In this workshop you will learn the latest HL7 data exchange standard in healthcare. FHIR – Fast Healthcare Interoperable Resources – and its RESTlike API with FHIR-resources offer numerous possibilities to build future-proof applications and interfaces. If possible please install a RESTful cient such as SoapUI, Postman or any other on your laptop.
Workshop #5 Telemedicine – Part I (Applications & Use Cases), Part II (Law and Ethics)
Anna E. Schmaus-Klughammer, Lecturer at Deggendorf Institute of Technology and CEO at Klughammer GmbH
Part I – Applications & Use Cases – During this workshop participants will learn different technical applications of telemedicine. Getting an insight into telemedicine uses cases in high income, middle income and low income countries will allow you to understand why and where telemedicine should be implemented. The on-site use of a web-based platform will familiarize the participants with the world of telemedicine during the workshop.
PartII – Law and Ethics – During this workshop participants will learn the legal situation using telemedicine. Examples from different countries as well as EU and international law will be explained and discussed. An introduction into ethics in general, ethics in medicine and the application of ethics in telemedicine will allow participants to come up with different, maybe new answers.
