The Hub provides an end-to-end support system for gerontech innovation from testbed sandbox to business matching, stakeholder engagement, partnerships, reputation building and coaching.

This year, the Hub of Gerontech-themed HKSTP Pavilion at GIES also showcased a range of gerontech innovations from park companies across eight key categories. These included health monitoring, screening and telemedicine, cognitive and rehabilitation training, anti-wandering system, elderly care, NGO software system, emerging medtech and infection control.
