Spotlight on Chicago Methodist Senior Services

Embodied Labs would like to recognize our partner and subscriber, Chicago Methodist Senior Services, for achieving 100% staff completion of We Are Alfred -- Part 1 of The Alfred Lab -- which is centered around aging, hearing loss, and age-related macular degeneration. CMSS became subscribers of Embodied Labs software with the goal of having every staff member on their organizational chart to experience Alfred's story, and use forthcoming Embodied Labs experiences for staff and volunteer development. Feedback showed that the majority of staff agreed that The Alfred Lab gave them greater insight into the perspective of aging adults, leading to better understanding of hearing and vision loss, the frustration that can be experienced while living with these impairments, and most importantly -- ways that they can improve their practices when interacting with patients and families. We are proud that CMSS is using our software to lead the way in implementing innovative in-service training!

CEO speaks at the CUSP Conference

Carrie Shaw, Embodied Labs CEO, was one of 25 speakers at the CUSP Conference 2017. CUSP features design thinkers from a interdisciplinary range of subjects. Speakers spanned a gamut of topics, including playing music with whales, turning brewery waste into a tasty and nutritious flour, exploring the intersection between hip hop and architecture, designing the Vancouver Olympic medals - and many more. Carrie reflected: "As I listened to each speaker share their story, common threads emerged: struggle, failure, and the ability to learn from both were the driving force that led to accomplishing their goals.'' It was fascinating to see how design thinking is helping to solve unique problems and allow for innovation in so many different fields across the world!

Glendale Tech Week provided an opportunity to demo The Alfred Lab for area stakeholders excited about innovations in technology and healthcare.  

At the Virtual Reality Developers Conference it was interesting to see how VR is influencing healthcare training, education, and therapy applications.
