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.
