Awakening Health – The future of healthcare.
Mr. David Lake created the robotic nurse GRACE to enhance the medical assistance possibilities in healthcare . Together with robotics partner David Hanson the future of Ataxia research is very hopeful. Mass production of the robot will lower the cost of the invention for hospitals, care homes and individuals.
Leaving a legacy for Ataxia
I have put many personal resources and hope into the search for a cure for Ataxia. Over the years my attention to the research work of Ataxia UK, the National Ataxia Foundation of Minnesota USA, FARA and FEDES in Spain regarding genetic studies and treatments have been extensive. But after 40 years there is still no cure.
Maybe we need to go a whole new route! I have been recently asking myself the question “ can Robotics, AI technologies be the new solution to healthcare and the future of Ataxia “ . Many people are coming together to answer this question. Can all these components find a solution to the needs of the Ataxia community ?
I and the Solution Project have chosen to involve Dr. David Hanson of Hanson robotics Hong Kong, David Lake of Awakening Health Ltd – Canada, Dr Ben Goetzel of AI Global network , Melissa Beiner of Biopharma USA , RIKEN Robotics research in Japan and people involved with robotics and Ataxia throughout Spain. These people are taking up the responsibility to help Ataxia and elderly care homes throughout the world.
On a bigger scale the Amazon Care project and Elon Musk with his new interest In humanoids and robotics are being included in the research to make their contributions to the healthcare sector. Perhaps all these efforts in robotics and AI technologies will contribute and augment the ongoing research we have in the fight against Ataxia.
Giving Ataxia assistance & hope through robotics!
Today the Hanson robotics company and the Awakening Health company have given elderly care patients and Ataxia patients everywhere a reason to have hope and nursing assistance. We all have hope for the future of Ataxia Care in late stages of the disease will be helped beyond just genetic research looking for a cure.
Enter Grace the nursing android robot ! She has the ability to take your temperature, speak to you, give you medication , assist your real nurse and much more! This is a new exciting future for the daily needs of people living in care homes with Ataxia.
For younger Ataxia patients with SCA types research using robotics are contributing to mobility and gait adjustment. Electro skeleton robotics are helping Ataxia patients find the firm footing they need along with grab and touch facility to increase their ability to increase their independence.
The Solution Project has introduced these companies with a futuristic approach to Ataxia research. The USA Biopharma company research department , National Ataxia Foundation and the research departments of Ataxia UK have started to look into working together with these companies in the hope of adding their knowledge to Ataxia research.
In just one year since the first robot of Hanson robotics came out ( Sophia ) the Awakening Health company will increase healthcare possibilities in 2022 by mass production of these nursing robots. Ataxia has a real reason to rejoice!
Leaving a Legacy for Ataxia?
The Solution Project / Martha Harlam on August 23 rd wrote to the director of Research at Biopharma and the robotics company Robert Hanson . Both companies have a willingness to work together on behalf of the research studies for Ataxia. It is a mutual mission to join their knowledge together and make a contribution to the future for Ataxia patients all over the world.
The time has come for me to turn my efforts to the future of Ataxia and the next generation. At age 70 the current treatment and clinical trials won’t benefit my situation. But together Biopharma and Hanson robotics / AI technologies will help to find a way to conquer this debilitating disease- Ataxia !
Bringing people Together
The Biopharma head researcher, Mellisa Beiner, has been brought together by the Solution Project/ Martha Harlam with Dr. Robert Hanson of Hanson robotics to develop how they can work together on a solution to Spino Cerebellar Ataxia. Robotics may be a welcome addition to the clinical trials for SCA ( Spino cerebellar ataxia ).
Teaching an Old Dog – New Tricks
Together with the National Ataxia Foundation research grant division and Hanson Robotics Technologies – Martha Harlam of the Solution Project will submit a letter of intent for funding for late stage Ataxia. This will give Ataxia patients hope that new technologies will give Ataxia patients a daily chance to surpass just waiting for a cure.
The Hanson Robotics and Technology Engineering company of Hong Kong has a chance to contribute to making the lives of Ataxia people better. The pro-active approach of robotics and new technologies in the late stages of Ataxia in elderly patients will contribute to cardio compilations regarding hereditary Ataxia. It is a known fact that older Ataxia patients can experience heart failure.
The robotics and technologies of the Hanson Robotic company will work together with the Solution Project / Martha Harlam and colleagues worldwide by submitting a detailed explanation of their letter of intent to the funding board of the National Ataxia Foundation.
Thank you for reaching out. I would love to explore whether our technology can help in the research and possible therapy for Ataxia.
Kindly meet David Lake, the CEO of Awakening Health Ltd–our partner in deploying our technologies for healthcare uses. Hanson Robotics would be interested in supporting your work, in conjunction with Awakening Health Ltd.
David Hanson, Ph.D.
Method to my madness
I was thinking what can I do on lockdown during a coronavirus time ? This virus has put a damper on creativity. However for me it was a way to get creative and go virtual! The emails, zoom chats and phone calls and a great website all gave me access to the world.
As a Website maker – putting everything on a website gives you the capability of reaching a wider audience faster than a book is quite intriguing. My webmaster and web – designer have given my storytelling and information abilities tremendous avenues to grow. This ability is far more satisfying to me than just writing a book. Over time my message and ideas are able to expand and grow.
An Event maker – The ability for my ideas to flourish was to get as many people as possible involved in my ideas . Out of just providing information and promoting awareness about various social issues the events listed on the website provide a real ability to engage with the issue at hand. But I made the spitballs and others fired them. If people want to engage in the fundraising events they can! With others in the business, charity and media area my ideas get exposure through the website. Anyone can join with no strings attached.
Charities and giving !
It was very necessary to promote a platform for social charities. My efforts are in no way self serving or monetarily profitably motivated. The idea to promote these issues is not new. It keeps me busy – so why do it? Being disabled and now 70 years old it gives me the ability, with limited resources , the chance to be socially engaged and intellectually active. The Solution Project has given me the chance to engage with all sorts of people who can even push my views on things to an unimaginable scale. If this website project gives just one person a boost, then I’ve accomplished my ultimate goal. If people want to get involved and donate to a charity – they can and they have a choice to help. The possibility is there. No one is twisting their arms to donate.
The Solution Project and my website will go on for a while. It challenges apathy and cynicism regarding many issues. Anyone can join in the events or get access to the information and awareness about issues facing all of our daily lives . We can all decide to be a part of the solution – or not !
Blog story behind the Solution Project
The Solution Project grew out of the personal need to share my everyday concerns about issues facing our daily lives. Taking registered charities to promote and support there were many issues to choose. The issues of rare disease R&D, human Trafficking, Ocean and river clean up projects, forest conservation, wildlife habitat protection , women and climate change, micro financing, gender equality, COVID-19 employment relief , Cancer research, medical civil help, cultural-mental health and LGBTQE rights.
Sure this is a heavy lift ! But the situation of all these issues needs a platform. That is how the Solution Project came into being. There are 15 solutions to choose from. It is my hope that my website and the Solution Project events can attract enough support and awareness to motivate people to join us in the fight against apathy. Together we can change mindset and be a part of the solution.
