In addition, the Office of the Television Business Broadcasting Commission and the National Telecommunications Commission (NBTC), as the organizer together with the NSTDA, have organized a joint exhibition to spread the mission of raising awareness and learning about various issues, development innovations and organizing Services that promote access and use through assistive technologies. Including a lecture and discussion on the subject of Digital Inclusion: Digital ID and Who Benefits from Digital Assistive Technology? The event was attended by 300 representatives from 10 economic regions: China, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Singapore, Malaysia, Japan, Korea, the United Kingdom, Australia and Thailand.
On this occasion, Mr Simon Wong Kamman, President of the Asian Rehabilitation Engineering and Assistive Technology Coalition. His Majesty reported on the i-CREATE 2022 conference held in Hong Kong. it was successfully carried out in August 2022 Although it was a hybrid event due to the COVID-19 epidemic. But international and local representatives took part in online presentations. In addition, there was an international innovation competition for students, “Global Student Innovation Challenge”, which showcased the innovative ideas of students and students in the efforts to design and develop There are new generations of researchers have come to present their research papers. And many times they are innovative concepts.
Professor Dr Phairat Tachayapong, Chairman of the i-CREATE 2023 organizing committee, pays tribute to the winners of the international invention competition for people with disabilities and the elderly. Design Innovation of the year 2023, 3 awards and winner of the international invention competition for people with disabilities and the elderly Technology for the year 2023, 3 awards
Then Somdet Phra Kanitthathiraj Chao Department of Her Royal Highness Princess Maha Chakri Sirindhorn Her Royal Highness Princess Maha Chakri Sirindhorn delivered an opening speech at the International Academic Conference i-CREATE 2023 and listened to Clinical Professor Dr. Niwet Nantajit, Director and General Secretary of the Institute of Prostheses Her Royal Highness Princess Srinagarindra Boromarajnani Presenting a special lecture on the subject of Prosthetic Leg Innovations of the Institute of Prostheses Past, Present and Future Her Royal Highness Princess Srinagarindra (Institute of Prostheses Her Highness The Princess Mother’s Prostheses: past, present and future innovations) and cut the ribbon to open an exhibition of inventions for the disabled and the elderly • international level Her Royal Highness Princess Maha Chakri Sirindhorn looked also on the works from the international invention competition for people with disabilities and the elderly. In innovation, design and technology for the year 2023, a total of 33 are working. Exhibition Technology Facilities and competitions that have taken place in the past that can be developed into a new business such as
The Office of the National Broadcasting and Telecommunications Commission (NBTC) exhibited an exhibition on the development of innovation and provision of services that promote accessibility and use through assistive technologies, such as the Communication Service System (TTRS) for the hearing and physically disabled. can communicate with the general public through basic telecommunications thoroughly and evenly. Caption service system, an innovation that helps people with disabilities or elderly people with hearing problems. can access academic and teaching conference news content Enable access to oral information by reading the transcript instead of listening to the audio.
Markerless human motion capture system Advantages: Users do not need to attach markers to indicate the location according to their bodies. But rely on the design of the computational process to train the computer to learn, analyze the image, and identify the location of which part of the body each point belongs to. The system then takes the image to process and record it as 3D data, which reduces the time and complexity of use. It is ready to apply to medical applications in 3 areas: orthopaedics, such as analyzing people at risk of osteoarthritis in order to receive timely treatment Health assessment, such as detecting abnormal walking postures in the elderly to prevent and monitor degenerative diseases of the body and rehabilitation Used on for planning exercise or physical therapy for patients.
Space Walker Walking aids with a partial weight support system Innovations for patients after physical therapy and health promotion for the elderly in an aging society This work received the 1st prize (Gold Award) from the event (i-CREATE 2017) in Japan. and many more rewards later Until the researchers were able to establish Medicube Company Limited to receive technology transfer. lead to production and distribution Has expanded its use to raise the level of service and care for the elderly to support the aging society. Currently, the space walker has been considered by the Budget Office on for Thai innovation registration. medical and health field To be promoted in the field of government procurement so that Thai people can take advantage of the innovations that Thai people produce of standard quality and reduce dependence on foreign technology
Podogram Analyzer This work received the first prize at the i-CREATEe 2014 in Singapore. It is a system for measuring and analyzing the pressure of the feet. to be applied for the design of heel and foot support devices for diabetic patients due to footwear or walking styles that do not match the weight of the soles of the feet can cause pressure sores The intelligent foot analysis system has two components: the podoscope. who can see the soles of the feet from the display AND can take the image of the sole of the foot for evaluation with an application part that can assess foot abnormalities by measuring the ratio of the soles of the feet to check for abnormalities in the shape of the foot Assessed the flow of blood on images before and after placing the arch support. It will show results as medical information that doctors can use to diagnose diseases and follow treatment effectively. His Royal Highness then returned.
