Smarter automated homes for healthy ageing

Digital health advances, from robotics and automation to 3D printing, are going to play an increasingly important role in modern healthcare delivery.

New and innovative technology is allowing us to live longer, healthier lives at home, particularly supporting chronic disease management.

With growing consumer expectations around therapy and at home support, technical advances will be increasingly relied upon to save costs. Come to this event and hear latest developments from industry experts.


3D printing in healthcare – what’s happening

Dr Sean Powell Academic, BioFabrication Institute, Queensland University of Technology

Sean’s research experience is in theoretical and computational modelling of particle dynamics and diffusion and MRI characterisation of diffusion in complex pore spaces. In addition, Sean has industry experience in computer software and hardware engineering, 3D visualisation systems, and solar thermal energy research. Presently, he leads the biofabrication research team within the Biofabrication and Tissue Morphology research group at QUT. His quantitative and problem solving skills as a physicist complement those of the multi-disciplinary team of biologists, organic chemists, clinicians and medical engineers. He is also passionate about learning and teaching and lectures undergraduate physics at all year levels from introductory to advanced.
