What we do - Living Labs

Living Labs


A Living lab is an experiential environment where users are immersed in a creative social space for designing and experiencing their own future. In principle, the living lab is different from the traditional test bed lab as the users are the objects of research (i.e. participants) as well as part of the research team (i.e. experimenters).

Point of Care Ultrasound Main Living Lab (PoCUS)

We are developing and continually improving the existing PoCUS training program at Memorial, as well as re-creating learning environments to teach PoCUS related skills for professions that have not had the opportunity to use ultrasound as a diagnostic modality to date.
