Last week, Philips and HyperActive Multimedia brought 4 Beams to McCormick Place in Chicago, for the annual meeting of the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA). More than 30 health professionals from all around the world “Beamed” into the conference.
One group in Poland turned their Beaming session into a real party!
“As we can see on the pictures, BEAM session was prepared fantastic and all the clients were enjoyed to had such an opportunity to see on live our Philips booth.” – Karolina Banaszkiewicz
All 25 participants in Poland were super excited about this opportunity and Dr. Vikas Shah even blogged about his experience with Beam!
A few of the Beams are now en route to Arab Health in Dubai and ESC in Vienna. Instead of traveling to your next health conference, try Beaming in!
The Suitable Technologies sales team just returned from GovComm 2013 in Washington DC, and we’re happy to say the show was a huge success! Many folks from different agencies commented that Beam can help the government save money on travel and operate more efficiently.
Suitable Technologies prefers to save money on travel as well. Here’s how we ran a successful trade show by sending only two people on the business trip.
The GovComm show set up began by having our booth designer beam to the trade show floor (using 4G). He project managed the on-site labor and answered questions, and he was very happy to work from his office in California.
Suitable Technologies’ sales team beamed in from Palo Alto, Kansas City, and New York at the start of each day to help.
Two of our sales associates helped by greeting GovComm 2013 attendees in the front lobby.
The sales associates were very popular with attendees, and very helpful with answering questions.
The Suitable Technologies booth was busy the whole show, over 200 people spoke with our sales associates and beamed into our Palo Alto or Kansas City offices for test drives.
After the show, we wanted to see a few sights in DC, and a running group from Georgetown University stopped us for a group photo.
At the end of the day, we decided to take a rickshaw ride through Washington DC in order to tour a few more of the sights.
We had a great time at GovComm 2013. Thanks to everyone who stopped by our booth!
At age 40, Henry Evans was left mute and quadriplegic after a stroke-like attack caused by a hidden birth defect. Years of therapy helped him learn to move his head and use a finger –which allows him to use a head-tracking device to communicate with a computer using experimental interfaces.
Now, working with Robots for Humanity, he’s a pioneer in adaptive robotic tech to help him, and other disabled people like him, navigate the world. Evans is a frequent and enthusiastic collaborator with robotics teams who are developing tools to help the severely disabled navigate their lives. Suitable Technologies, and Beam, is happy to help Evans be on stage for TEDxMidAtlantic.
Beam me up, Scotty!
This week, we were at FutureMed in beautiful Coronado, California, only a few miles from San Diego. We introduced Beam to many primary care physicians, healthcare consultants, and hospital owners from all around the world. They were interested in our technology and were hopeful about incorporating Beam into their clinics and hospitals. We also discussed having Beam devices in remote offices so physicians can deliver care to a broader population or having volunteers greet patients via Beam on different hospital floors.
We had so much fun and met so many amazing individuals trying to better our healthcare delivery system. Thank you, Singularity University, for inviting us to this event and we can’t wait to see what’s in store for us next!

This past week, we partnered with Arstasis for TCT Conference at the Moscone Center in San Francisco. We brought 2 Beams there and had many engaging conversations with cardiologist and innovators in the medical field. The possibilities are endless and this is the first time we attended a medical conference. Many have told us that Beam was the coolest gig there and we can’t wait to attend FutureMed this upcoming week!
Last week, we participated in RoboBusiness and nearly 100 pilots from around the world “Beamed” into the conference.
A total of 127 hours of calls were made, equivalent to 5 days of continuous conversation. This is not only an exciting opportunity for us to showcase our technology, but also a way for many international attendees to interact in the show remotely. The ability for participants to be connected to different exhibitors via Beam was truly amazing. Thank you RoboBusiness for giving us this awesome experience and we look forward to doing this again; see you at the next conference via Beam!
Thank you all for your support! We had a great show at RoboBusiness.
Our 50 Beams at the Santa Clara Convention Center were used by remote participants all around the world, including Australia, Turkey, India, Japan, and more. We will be posting pictures and videos very soon. You can also check out the writing of Bill Wong at Electronic Design, as he has documented his experience at the show.
