HKBU promotes smart living with Chinese medicine and innovative technologies at InnoCarnival

浸大參與創新科技嘉年華 展示中醫藥與智慧生活

The School of Chinese Medicine (SCM) and Knowledge Transfer Office (KTO) took part in the InnoCarnival 2017 organised by the Innovation and Technology Commission at the Science Park in Shatin from 21 to 29 October 2017. The exhibition managed by HKBU was based on the theme “Chinese Medicine and Smart Living” with the aim of demonstrating how one could maintain a healthy lifestyle by adopting the wisdom of traditional Chinese medicine and introducing the latest innovative technologies of HKBU.

KTO showcased four new patented inventions by HKBU at the exhibition, namely Lip-password: Double Security System for Identity Authentication, A Mobile-based Fatigue Driving Detection and Alarm System, Autologous Neural Stem Cell Harvest, and Personal Health Monitoring and Gait Force Imaging System. Through display panels and video clips, visitors were able to learn more about the basic mechanisms and impacts of these inventions which may in turn arouse their interest and spur creativity in the local innovation and technology industry.

SCM, on the other hand, introduced a variety of Chinese medicine healthcare knowledge on maintaining a healthy diet, Qigong exercises and acupuncture. A few interactive edutainment activities were also held at the exhibition to provide visitors with a rich Chinese medicine cultural experience, and they involved an e-learning acupuncture software, a tai chi somatosensory game, a mobile app that introduces 10 local cultural attractions featuring Chinese medicine, and a virtual reality game. In addition, SCM experts and scholars also delivered a series of Chinese medicine seminars to introduce the use of Chinese medicine for the prevention and treatment of insomnia, constipation, emotional illnesses of the elderly, bone and joint diseases, and low back pain.

The exhibition was supported by the Innovation and Technology Fund and Beijing Tong Ren Tang Chinese Medicine Company Limited.

中醫藥學院與知識轉移處今年合作參與由創新科技署於10月21至29日在沙田科學園舉辦的創新科技嘉年華2017,以「中醫藥與智慧生活」為展覽主題,解釋如何運用中醫藥智慧實踐健康的生活方式,以及向市民展示浸大最新的創新科技發展。

知識轉移處透過展版和短片介紹大學四項新專利發明,包括︰唇語密碼︰雙重安全身份認證系統、駕駛人士疲勞檢測及警告系統、自體神經幹細胞分離技術,以及個人健康監測及步態分析系統,加深市民對新專利技術的認識和瞭解,並從中啟發他們對本地創新科技的興趣。

另一方面,中醫藥學院於展覽上介紹多項中醫藥養生資訊,如飲食養生、運動養生和穴位養生,並透過電腦科技包括:【腧】經絡按摩資訊系統、太極體感遊戲、「香港中醫藥文化十景」手機應用程式、虛擬實景遊戲等,讓市民體驗豐富多彩的中醫藥文化。此外,學院的專家學者亦主持了一系列中醫藥講座,向公眾人士分享中醫藥對失眠、便秘、長者情緒病、腰痛、骨關節疾病的防治方法等。
