Hilla Boral, OT, MA Ed, Director of PELE, Solutions for Children, ALYN Hospital, Pediatric and Adolescent Rehabilitation Center, Jerusalem, Israel
The newly renovated, 500 square meter (5,400 sq ft) Innovation Space at ALYN is a one stop shop for Assistive Technology entrepreneurship and brings together, for the first time under one roof, all of the elements required for innovation in this field: a physical work space with a state-of-the-art laboratory for prototyping and initial manufacturing, access to Israel's leading experts in pediatric rehabilitation, partnership around clinical trials, and the opportunity for product testing with target audiences by interacting with ALYN patients in a controlled and safe environment. The Innovation Space team will work with children who need personalized solutions and with entrepreneurs and inventors around assistive innovation that can benefit a global audience. The Innovation Space was renovated with funding from the National Insurance Social funds.
In this workshop we will demonstrate the process that each challenge goes through from theory to prototype, together with the participators. We will choose a challenge and work together to build a suitable solution in the ALYN's Innovation Space Workshop.
