Event description

Description

How can we harness the power of digital to look after our health and wellbeing, on our own terms?

This is the question we will explore together, on this final day of our 2019 edition of Discover Digital.

This will be a day suitable for all ages, dedicated to health and wellbeing. Together we will discover some of the ways in which digital tools can help us look after ourselves, now and in the future.

Walkins on the day will be available, but it's better to book a free ticket, especially if you want to attend a talk or a workshop.

Programme

Stalls and activities will be available to visit between 10am - 3pm. Here is a snapshot of what will be available:

  • BCS Health and Care Scotland and Robert Gordon University will talk you through two creative self management apps for children: E-Bug and Emollizoo.

  • NHS Highland will present how very disabled patients can operate domestic devices - TV, radio, door openers, computer equipment - with the activation of a single easy to use switch, as well as two digital projects to ensure wheelchair users are properly supported.

  • ALISS are working to map local community activities, groups and services which help people to live well. Chat with them about how ALISS can help you to find this information and find out how to share your own knowledge with family, friends, neighbours and colleagues.

  • DHI will host an interactive stand to explore what Self Management means to you - with "helping hands" and through "future glasses", we'll have a look to see how technology might fit in all this.

  • BHF will tell you why knowing about blood pressure monitoring is important for your health, see how you could be monitoring it at home and how you can help yourself to better health.

Other standholders include: Nesta, YoungScot, Highland Children's Forum, PAMIS, Lifescan, My mHealth, British Heart Foundation. See the full programme.
