TRiC helps to build new capabilities in Day Rehabilitation Centres (DRCs) in Singapore. The Agency for Integrated Care and Singapore Polytechnic (SP) will develop and test-bed technologies that aim to increase the operational efficiency of the centres and improve clinical outcomes for patients. Temasek Cares is providing seed funding for 4 projects through the Balaji Sadasivan Endowment.
Prototypes for the 4 projects are in the final stages of completion and user trials are expected to commence in late 2013. SP is working closely with DRCs operated by St. Andrew’s Community Hospital and Asian Women’s Welfare Association on the design and testing of Equipment, as well as to gather feedback from patients and staff. Final prototypes are expected to be implemented over the next 1-2 years.
