On the 29th September 2020, the UK National Advisory Board meeting was hosted by Canterbury Christ Church University (CCCU). Advisory Board members include NHS consultants, orthopaedic surgeons, physiotherapists, health system experts and occupational therapists. The CCCU MOTION project team gave a general overview of the MOTION project. This was followed by a presentation about the assessment of training needs of professionals, parents and carers in the use of bionic rehabilitation, and a presentation about the exoskeleton prototypes and plans for testing. Advisory Board members gave valuable recommendations, including considerations for cyber security in medical devices and suggestions for our robotic exoskeleton feasibility studies. Furthermore, advisory board members agreed to disseminate the MOTION project Online Survey of Health Care Professionals with their contacts. The next meeting will take place in spring 2021 and will be hosted by Chailey Clinical Services, Sussex Community NHS Foundation Trust.
