LSCM participated in the Gerontech and Innovation Expo cum Summit (GIES) held on 22 to 25 November 2018, which was organised by the Government of the HKSAR and the Hong Kong Council of Social Service. GIES is a platform for drawing together stakeholders to engage in dialogues and collaboration in driving policy changes, as well as societal and economic developments in Hong Kong to embrace the opportunities brought about by ageing population.
At the expo, LSCM showcased its latest technologies and demonstrated how to deploy these technologies in elderly services. Thousands of visitors were attracted to the LSCM booth and enjoyed the trial of the new technologies such as Smart-service Robot, Elderly Lifter, UWB Monitoring System and “Follow Me” Wheelchair Robot.
The “Follow-Me” Wheelchair Robot drew the attention of Mr Matthew Cheung Kin-chung, Chief Secretary for Administration, Mr Nicholas W Yang, Secretary for Innovation and Technology and Mr Bernard Chan, Chairperson of HKCSS. Mrs Carrie Lam Cheng Yuet-ngor, Chief Executive, also visited LSCM booth to learn more about how these technologies can help enhance the quality of life of the elderly.
