This weekend, not only the annual Research Mile (“Forschungsmeile”) will take place in downtown Bremen, but also the World Health Organization's (WHO) World Patient Safety Day. To mark the occasion, Constructor University will be presenting several groundbreaking research projects highlighting its active contribution to improving patient safety.

Close to Bürgermeister-Smidt-Brücke, along the area called “Schlachte”, Constructor University will pitch its tents on September 16th and 17th as part of the Research Mile. Interested parties are cordially invited to test two trend-setting health apps as well as to try out a robot-controlled exoskeleton developed by students to treat hand paralysis. Students and researchers from the various project teams will be on site on both days to answer questions and provide expert guidance on navigating the devices.

About the projects:

  • Dr. Thomas Lang, Adjunct Professor of Psychology, developed Mindable, an app that helps patients with panic disorders and agoraphobia to bridge the waiting time for a therapy place. Mindable is one of the few mental health apps on the market to be approved by the public health insurance system; the costs of the app are covered by health insurance with a prescription.
  • Team Baby is a research project of the Ulm and Frankfurt university hospitals, Constructor University in Bremen, as well as the Techniker Krankenkasse and the Aktionsbündnis Patientensicherheit. As part of this project, Dr. Sonia Lippke, Professor of Health Psychology and Behavioral Medicine and her team have developed an app that is intended to improve communication in gynecology and obstetrics and thus increase patient safety.
  • Student startup ExoHeal is developing an accessible, inexpensive and effective method for treating hand paralysis. An AI-assisted exoskeleton helps patients undergo rehabilitation in the comfort of their own homes. The project was awarded first place in the Microsoft Imagine Cup 2022 and was funded with a $100,000 USD prize along with Mentorship from Satya Nadella, CEO, of Microsoft.
