HEALTH: Rehabilitation Robot for Prokocim Children’s Hospital
The Children’s Hospital in Prokocim has played host to a rather unusual new doctor this week as a very special robot has come to visit. It’s name is ‘Prodrobot’ and at a cost of over PLN 200, 000, its groundbreaking features could help children suffering from a wide range of disabilities.
The machine is designed to map and simulate walking patterns, allowing children to practice walking along with a number of other activities, all in a safe and personalized manner. Rehabilitation therapist Boguslaw Banas has commented that thanks to their new robotic friend, there are children who will now be able to walk for the first time in their lives.
Donated by the foundation ‘Tesco Children’, the funds to purchase the Polish designed robot were collected through their ‘V Charity Run’ event.
TRAVEL: Krakow to Tel Aviv Just Got Easier
Krakow’s deep ties with the Jewish community are present all over the city and through its many museums, galleries, events and organisations it is a veritable centre for Jewish cultural celebration. It’s no surprise then that from 31 March 2017, Israeli Airlines El Al will be after 8 years re-opening a connection between Balice and Tel Aviv.
The second largest city in Israel and situated only 1 hour’s drive from Jeruselum, this new aero-connection will provide easy passage not only for Israelis looking to discover Jewish Culture in Krakow but also a chance for the Polish to explore the homeland of their long time neighbours and friends.
