The Futuristic Hospital programme held in conjunction with the Malaysian Family Aspirations (AKM) Tour showcased various technological inventions to facilitate better and deliver faster health services.
Negeri Sembilan Health Department director Datuk Dr Harlina Abdul Rashid said the programme is a collaboration with health industry operators to provide exposure towards patient-oriented futuristic hospital concept.
“Through this programme, we aim to introduce these futuristic inventions to many more healthcare providers via the Ministry of Health (MOH).
“Not only will they boost the efficiency of healthcare services, but also help reduce overcrowding in hospitals,” she told Bernama when met at Dataran Seri Jempol here today.
Some of the inventions, among others, include the robotic exoskeleton system for neurological rehabilitation which encourages neuroplasticity that accelerates a patient’s recovery process.
Another invention worth highlighting is the 3D denture printing system which reduces waiting time for patients from an average of five days to three or four hours.
Meanwhile, Johari Sidin, 45, who visited the Futuristic Hospital was amazed by the demonstration of the robotic limb, and said the invention will assist individuals who suffer from paralysed fingers.
“The robotic limbs would be able to increase precision and stabilise my keyboard typing which otherwise is usually shaky,” he added.
Meanwhile, MOH as the leader in health-related fields showcased other health-related elements involved in healthcare, by holding demonstrations on Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) and Wellness On Wheels (WOW) programmes. – Bernama
