Thursday, June 22 2023: Agenda & Speakers
The number of old, obese and mentally and emotionally overburdened people is rising, and healthcare systems are groaning: solutions could lie in wearables, VR glasses, DNA tests or artificial intelligence. How will technologies enable us to increasingly take fitness and health into our own hands?
Brain tech: Who wants to sharpen their brains with VR & EEG?
Brain health tech's shining future is on the horizon, with the global market size expected to grow to $15 billion by 2030. The VR and EEG headbands help consumers, athletes and patients to "upgrade" their brains. On the medical side, ADHD patients improve their concentration after a few sessions in VR, and EEG headbands are recommended as additional therapy for depression. What's next?
10:30-11:00 a.m.
Cognitive training: Gamifying mind-body connection for less stress?
New forms of physical training combine exercises for the eyes, brain and musculoskeletal system in a playful way to help us think faster, recover better and exercise more efficiently. Will mixed training forms cure our aging, physically inactive and stressed society? What data can we collect today to make impact tomorrow? And who would be the major beneficiaries of new mixed types of cognitive and physical training?
11:00-11:30 a.m.
VR/AR in healthcare: How big is the gap between research and reality?
We are living longer, getting more stressed, and becoming increasingly obese. Digital tools can offer a remedy for the broken healthcare systems - but only if they make the leap from the research lab to the big stage of everyday medical practice. In this session, one of the founding fathers of virtual reality from Stanford University will share his first-hand insights into the mental health research and VR - and disclose what it takes to reach broad technology adoption.
10:00-10:30 a.m.
DNA-based advisors: My meal, my workout, my healthcare?
Data-focused personalized products are finally reaching the fitness tech and nutrition worlds - and far beyond. Based on the results of DNA tests, health companies like Fitness Genes and Bio-Synergy provide dietary and exercise advice that ranges from anti-aging to astronaut food. How will the data from our bio-code further change the lifestyle habits of millions?
11:30-12:00 a.m.
