Oct. 10: Innovative Sensory Technologies

This conference will give the audience a chance to get a first impression of the possibilities in the realm of sensory intervention, and will also be engaged in discussing the technological possibilities for innovative medicine. 

Most of us recognize how sound and light can influence our feelings and emotions, but can sensory effects also make patients healthy? We ask the questions - How can different sensory environments affect us and what is the evidence behind using sound & light as medicine? How can we take advantage of innovative sensory technologies like VR/AR when it comes to health? This and much more will be discussed at this conference.

The focus will be on emerging technologies and future trends, featuring groundbreaking research and inspiring industry cases and business applications. Whether you’re a business executive, IT- specialist, health care professional or just interested in the area, this conference will give you opportunities to gain a competitive edge in your field and get a glance into the future of your industry.

Organisers: Danish Sound Innovatoin Network, WelfareTech and Sound and Health.

The conference is part of WHINN 2017. It is held in English and aimed at health professionals, IT specialists, business developers and others interested in the area. Register here.
