Innovation Space

Innovation Space

ALYN Hospital, Israel’s only pediatric and adolescent rehabilitation facility, is creating a brand new Innovation Space in Jerusalem, in partnership with the National Insurance Institute, the Jerusalem Development Authority, the Ministry of Jerusalem and Heritage, and XLN of the Reut Institute.

 

The newly renovated, 500 square meter (5,400 sq ft) Innovation Space at ALYN is a one stop shop for Assistive Technology entrepreneurship and brings together, for the first time under one roof, all of the elements required for innovation in this field: a physical work space with a state-of-the-art laboratory for prototyping and initial manufacturing, access to Israel's leading experts in pediatric rehabilitation, partnership around clinical trials, and the opportunity for product testing with target audiences by interacting with ALYN patients in a controlled and safe environment.

 

The Innovation Space team will work with children who need personalized solutions and with entrepreneurs and inventors around assistive innovation that can benefit a global audience.

The team will develop innovative technological solutions through two different tracks:

 

PELE

PELE* is case-driven and focuses on finding personalized solutions for children who face physical challenges to act independently in their day-to-day activities - such as eating, dressing, maintaining personal hygiene, communicating, studying and being mobile. PELE provides consulting services, guidance, and the design and manufacturing of assistive technologies by volunteer “makers” to produce adaptable, adjustable, accessible and affordable innovative assistive technology solutions.

*PELE is the transliteration of the Hebrew acronym פל"א which stands for פתרונות לילדים אלי"ן or Solutions for Children ALYN. פלא means “a wonder.”

 

ALYNnovation

ALYNnovation is focused towards entrepreneurs and inventors developing assistive technology products and solutions for children on a global scale and intended for the international market. ALYNnovation works with entrepreneurs and rehabilitation specialists to identify and develop innovation that has the potential to empower children with special needs around the world, increasing their independence and participation in society. It will then commercialize and bring these products to market, leveraging its powerful global network.
