Description

Is the future of health switched on?

Future Hospital is a day of talks, tech demos and immersive experiences focusing on the future of healthcare and medical technology. Before you check in to the hospital of the future, check it out. Robot pills, managing pain through virtual reality, 3D-printed prosthetics, remote care, precision medicine, medical devices in jewellery, and drones to deliver samples: discover health innovation at Future Hospital. Join Melbourne startups, medical researchers, clinicians and designers as they explore the new medical treatments and technologies already developing.

Begin your experience by booking in for a tour of the Future Hospital Tech Demo Floor. These tours run every half-hour throughout the day.
