UBORA as industrial and educational innovation paradigm towards SDGs 3 & 4

By | June 3, 2019

The Industrial Engineering School at Universidad Politécnica de Madrid (ETSII-UPM) is performing a strategic actuation to make Spanish engineers aware of the relevance of engineering practice to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). In connection with SDGs 3 on “Good Health and Well Being” and 4 on “Quality Education”, an interview with Prof. Andrés Díaz Lantada, leader of UPM within UBORA, has been published. In the interview, Andrés has presented UBORA as a paradigmatic example of how industrial and educational innovation can be combined for the development of open-source medical devices. UBORA devices developed at UPM and presented in the UBORA Design School in Pisa have been also features as some of the most innovative examples of engineering systems developed by UPM students in the last years.

Examples of medical devices developed by UPM students as examples for the UBORA Design School in Pisa and featured in the interview to Prof. Andrés Díaz Lantada: a) Wrong back position detector. b) AI-supported fall detection system.
