Cambridge Festival 2024

Join us for an exploration of healthcare improvement with our fellows, Peter Hartley and Sarah Yardley, at the Cambridge Academy for Science and Technology (CAST) for the Biomedical Campus family day, part of the Cambridge Festival. Come along and find the THIS Institute stand on the second floor. The event is free to attend and all are welcome. No booking required.

Cambridge Realtime Rehabilitation Activity Tracker (CaRRAT)

THIS Fellow Peter Hartley will collect feedback by asking festival attendees to test a prototype real-time rehabilitation activity tracker called CaRRAT.

CaRRAT is a wrist-worn monitor similar in appearance to a small, faceless watch. It measures physical activity, different postures, and transitions between postures. The tracker is designed to be used in hospital patients with reduced mobility.

Data is wirelessly streamed and made available on electronic medical records and patient-held devices, providing real-time feedback. Clinicians can use the device to plan, deliver, monitor, and evaluate care and rehabilitation, set tailored goals with patients, and drive service improvement as a key audit and evaluation tool.

Relationships and stories in healthcare: what matters most to you in life and death

Join THIS Fellow Sarah Yardley, for an interactive experience and discover why relationships are crucial to getting healthcare right.

You can review a photographic series produced as part of Sarah’s research and participate in activities to consider how using creative research methods can change how we think about safety in healthcare.

Daniel Regan is a photographic artist, producer, consultant who specialises in exploring complex and difficult emotional experiences and Executive Director of the Arts & Health Hub, a not-for-profit supporting artists and cultural producers that are exploring health, wellbeing and what it means to be human.
