ETH Zurich is one of the leading universities of the world with a strong focus on science and engineering. In 2010 it established the Singapore-ETH Centre (SEC) in collaboration with the National Research Foundation (NRF) to do interdisciplinary research on pressing problems.
In collaboration with the National University of Singapore (NUS), the Nanyang Technological University (NTU), Duke - NUS, the National Health Group (NHG), National University Health System (NUHS), and SingHealth, SEC is undertaking a research programme on "Future Health Technologies (FHT)". It addresses some immanent health challenges by developing a future-oriented Mobile Digital Health Concept that tackles the increase in patients suffering from chronic diseases such as diabetes, obesity and stroke, as a consequence of a rapidly ageing population with mobile digital technologies, covering the value chain from acute care to patient's private homes.
The Connected Rehabilitation and Assistive Technologies Module (Module 3) aims to develop rehabilitation technologies that provide high value care for stroke patients. Available technologies will include new robotic devices and brain-computer interfaces that are tailored to the individual patient’s needs, linking unobtrusive technical assessments via multiple sensors with interventions in real or virtual environments.
We will, for the first time, develop and evaluate a technology-supported therapy and assistance concept for the arm and hand which spans across the continuum of care, i.e. extending from application at the bedside, to rehabilitation services provided by community centres and finally to patients’ homes. The collected data from devices across all projects will enable the identification of biomarkers for modelling recovery and treatment response and for identifying the cost-saving potential of these technologies for the individual and society.
As a Researcher in Public Health and High Value Care in Neurorehabilitation, you address the question of how such technologies can be implemented in the clinical workflow to provide high-value care for an individual patient. It is generally accepted that a decision in favor of one treatment option over another is made in light of its expected clinical efficacy, feasibility, and cost-effectiveness. However, this decision-making process is complex and here we investigate whether it can be supported via an evidence-based approach.
You will be responsible for the development, validation, and clinical implementation of a technology-based, high-value care strategy. This work will be performed in close collaboration with our research partners at Nanyang Technological University (NTU), Duke-NUS Medical School, and Tan Tock Seng Hospital (TTSH).
Your tasks will include:
We are looking for a candidate that can start as soon as possible. The position is funded for 4 years. If desired, the position brings the possibility of obtaining a doctoral degree from ETH Zurich.
