Doc, will I really walk again? The miracles coming from the synergy of man and a robot

The development of new materials and the miniaturization of electronics and computers enable the “reanimation” of cells with lost biological function. A similar application already exists in electrically controlled external stimulation of the heart muscle that allows for a longer and better quality life for patients with heart rhythm disorders (pacemaker).

Join us for this unforgettable panel that will bring together global experts in the field of medical robotics, pioneers of restorative neurology and persons with quadriplegia who, thanks to modern medical robotics, have participated in the Cybathlon with the help of state-of-the-art technology. Experts will discuss the objectivity, measurability, and reality of current constraints and expectations in improving quality of life.
