RIS Swiss Section – German Speaking School Bangkok is very proud that our Alumna, Ms. Phyllis Hofmann, who is currently studying at the ETH Zurich, was invited to present the results of her research paper at the i-CREATe 2016 Conference in Bangkok.
The paper presents a robotic tool (named Vitual Peg Insertion Test) for the assessment of upper limb function and ability of stroke patients. A stroke often leaves patients with permanent disabilities. Her part in the project was to define and implement new parameters on this test that can potentially identify and categorize these impairments following a stroke.
We wish Phyllis Hofmann every success in her future career!
