Innovative technologies, solutions and services benefiting elderly and disabled people are featured at an exhibition which opened at the Shanghai New International Expo Center in the Pudong New Area yesterday.


The three-day International Exhibition of Senior Care, Rehabilitation Medicine and Healthcare, Shanghai 2021, also known as China Aid, has 400-plus exhibitors from 12 countries and regions displaying products and services.


The exhibition space of 40,000 square meters is a third more than last year and around 40,000 visitors are expected.


The event, hosted by the Shanghai Civil Affairs Bureau and Council for the Promotion of International Trade Shanghai, dates back to 2000.


On display are nursing beds, exoskeleton robots that can assist patients suffering from osteoarthritis and other conditions affecting their movement, and systems which can monitor the health of elderly people by analyzing their sleep, breathing and heart rate.


Robotic devices can help those confined to bed with the problem of going to the toilet.


They can automatically identify, clean, dry and collect waste from the bedridden.


Song Jun, the company’s sales manager, said the device can be used in bed to provide a great physiological convenience.


“In addition, there will be some heated warm water inside the robot which can automatically clean the private parts of the human body,” said Song.


“The built-in air purification device can also effectively purify and deodorize the air after excretion,” he added.


The exhibition also features winning entries in the 9th China Senior Care Entrepreneurial Design and Innovation Awards competition and the development of the senior-care sector in the Yangtze River Delta region, including talent training, smart senior care, home nursing and senior-care finance, officials said.
