SINGAPORE, Feb 10, 2022 – Zen Koh, Co-Founder and Group Deputy CEO of Fourier Intelligence, has been elected as the incoming President of The International Industry Society in Advanced Rehabilitation Technology (IISART) during the society’s most recent virtual General Assembly on 20th January 2022. The election was conducted amongst the key members of IISART through an anonymous voting poll.
As a leader in the rehabilitation field for 20 years, Zen has founded several MedTech companies. “I am honoured to have the support from the members of IISART. With my presidency in IISART, we can drive the rehabilitation industry forward through adaptation in technologies and innovation,” said Zen, who has been awarded by MD+DI as one of the Top 40 Under 40 Future Most Influential Leaders in MedTech.
Dr Martina Spiess, the Co-President of IISART (2019 – 2021) and a Research Associate from Zurich University of Applied Sciences, has stated, “The steering committee of IISART acknowledges Zen’s support and contribution throughout these years; Zen is no doubt the ideal candidate for the President of IISART”.
Dr Iris Jakob, the second Co-President of IISART (2019 – 2021) and a Scientific Coordinator of Tyromotion, has described, “Zen is certainly well-connected and has proven his successes in the rehabilitation field. With Zen spearheading IISART, he will be the drive for different companies to collaboratively work together with IISART to promote knowledge and raise the standards of advanced rehabilitation technology”.
Dr Gery Colombo, the founder and former CEO of Hocoma AG and Founding President of IISART, has expressed that with Zen’s leadership, there will be diversity where different perspectives are valued and sought. “Closing the gaps between a manufacturer’s pain point and a customer’s standpoint, while prioritising the patient’s need, is what the industry is hoping to improve; Zen can contribute and help expedite the process. Take the RehabWeek for instance, numerous delegates will be able to corroborate that Zen was able to bring more people with similar interests together”.
“It is great and exciting to see how IISART is developing. With the seven new members, the society will become even stronger! Thank you to all the steering members for keeping this important mission going so well”, concluded Dr Gery Colombo at the end of the General Assembly.
