**New! We are pleased to have our podcast available from the Illinois Innovators Podcast with Mike Koon **

Health Care Engineering Systems Center and Jump Simulation presented the Jump ARCHES sponsored 5th Health Care Engineering Systems Symposium & Interactive Medical Simulation EXPO on September 17, 2018.

These topics were explored:

  • Simulation, Virtual Reality/Augmented Reality in Health Care and Education
  • Wearable Computing
  • Voice User Interface
  • Artificial Intelligence in Healthcare
  • Medical and Social Robotics
  • Assistive Living Technologies

A Two Minute Pitch session was added to give an opportunity for interested researchers to introduce their projects they are considering and needing collaborators.


About HCESC and Jump ARCHES

The Health Care Engineering Systems Center (HCESC) at the College of Engineering of the University of Illinois provides clinical immersion to engineers and fosters collaborations between engineers and physicians. They use their expertise in the broad areas of health information technologies, sensing and devices, materials and mechanics, and human factors/industrial ergonomics and design, to develop collaborative projects which could be used for simulation in training of medical practitioners of tomorrow.

The University of Illinois has partnered with OSF HealthCare on the initiative known as Jump Applied Research for Community Health through Engineering and Simulation (Jump ARCHES).

Jump ARCHES is innovating in the areas of augmented reality, virtual reality, medical simulation, robotics and smart health technologies by creating new groundbreaking products and solutions which promises to improve healthcare outcomes.
