The 2nd International Conference “MedTrands 2016” with the participation of Professor Henryk Skarżyński

The 2nd International conference “MedTrends 2016 – British-Polish Health Forum” took place on March 18-19, 2016 in Zabrze. Professor Henryk Skarżyński delivered an invited lecture titled “Comprehensive examination of senses – new telemedical technologies“. The information about the senses examination capsule which is created in the Institute of Physiology and Pathology of Hearing as part of the EU programme STRATEGMED attracted a lot of attention.

The capsule is an integrated system of tools for diagnostics and telerehabilitation of sensory-organ disorders – problems with hearing, vision, speech, balance, taste and smell – explained Professor Henryk Skarżyński. – There is no similar system in the world. It will allow performing examinations of the most important senses in one place and within a short time. In order to diagnose sensory disorders, patients must visit many medical centres – they must wait long months for each appointment. Many people resign from treatment because the diagnostic process is so cumbersome. – said Professor Skarżyński.

During his lecture, Professor Henryk Skarżyński talked also about the history and achievements of the Institute. He also listed issues related to his own method of partial deafness treatment.

This cutting-edge diagnostic and rehabilitation capsule, which could be placed in different centres, will contribute to the promotion and improvement of access to preventive medical examination of people with many sensory disorders and their rehabilitation.

The main aim of the European conference “MedTrands 2016”, which was attended by the leading experts in the field of oncology, neurology, otolaryngology, cardiology, genomics, was to exchange knowledge and experience between representatives of the sector of science, medicine, new technology and telemedicine solutions, who came from Poland and other European countries. They could discuss the implementation and directions in the development of modern solutions in medicine, with particular emphasis on e-health tools, personalized medicine and e-education. The organizers of the conference were Medical Technology Park Kardio-Med Silesia and Silesian Centre for Heart Disorders.
