This year's opening is all about movement disorders. A very challenging and topical theme in which medical technology can provide a solution or at least a role in improving or maintaining a healthy life. To realize this, the Interdisciplinary Consortium for Clinical Human Movement Sciences & Technology (ICMS) has been established.
ICMS is aimed at improving the quality of life and maintaining independence and social participation of people suffering from movement disorders. This goal will be achieved through joint and interdisciplinary scientific research focused on innovation whereby close cooperation exists between scientists, private health funding organizations and innovative companies.
Several stakeholders within this consortium will pitch their dream or vision of what the future could look like without or with manageable problems related to movement disorders. From patient to researcher and from fund to industry. Everyone explains what their dream or part of the possible solution is.
