To apply BME colleagues’ professional knowledge and innovative development to serve the community is one of the missions of BME. Service has been embedded into BME team since it was originated in Jockey Club Rehabilitation Engineering Centre (REC) in 1987. Currently, REC hosts two service units to serve clients in rehabilitation engineering and smart ageing technology:
Jockey Club Rehabilitation Engineering Clinic
Jockey Club Smart Ageing Hub
In addition to serving clients from the community, REC and its two service units have also been providing Service Learning opportunities to all PolyU students via the Service Learning Subject “BME3S02 Assistive Technologies: Service Learning towards the Elderly and Disabled”.
