We are rooting hard for Dr Kelvin Heung’s team ‘Fleming Medlab’!

With neuroscientific principles and soft robotics, Dr Heung’s team focused on the development of innovative wearable exoskeleton characterized as lightweight, portable, medical-grade and safe for enhancing stroke patients’ neural pathways and mobility. The product will give patients a new level of well-being and confidence. Dr Heung shares, “We have already obtained patent protection and are currently preparing for human trials. We expect to launch the product to market in this year and benefit more people.”

Scooping awards is never easy. Despite fierce competitions, the team’s acts of persistence, innovation and efforts deserve the wonderful achievements in Hong Kong Techathon 2023 and Inno Impact Award 2022.
