Welcome to HealthTech 101: Everything you wanted to know about HealthTech but never dared to ask.
Join us for recurring half-hour lunch talks, where we invite friends from interesting organisations, to chat about healthtech. Curiosity is all the preparation you need.
What is warm technology and how can you use it to make a positive impact on people’s health?
No Isolation is the company behind services such as the telepresence robot AV1, that helps students with long term absence be present in the classroom, on break time and in social situations despite not being there in person. They are also behind the one-button computer Komp, that bridges the communication gap between those that struggle to use modern day technology, and their more tech-savvy family and friends. By controlling both hardware and software design themselves, they eliminate the barriers that get in the way of having the best experience using the technology.
Join us April 28 to hear more about the philosophy behind warm tech, and how to integrate the human element in your product or service.
