Throughout a
distinguished career spanning over two decades, Zen Koh has fervently dedicated
himself to advancing the field of rehabilitation through the creation of
innovative robotics and AI solutions. As a serial technopreneur, his impactful
journey commenced with the founding of i-CREATe, START Centre, and Fourier
Intelligence in 2015. Koh has been instrumental in fostering deep collaboration
within the development teams, leading to the creation of groundbreaking devices
benefiting both patients and therapists. At the helm of Fourier Intelligence’s
neurorehabilitation robotics program, Koh has been the driving force behind the
company’s exceptional milestones, including the development of award-winning
devices such as the renowned ArmMotus™ EMU, ExoMotus™ M4, and the recently

Zen Koh’s outstanding
contributions have garnered significant recognition. He was previously honoured
with the esteemed IEEE/IFR Innovation and Entrepreneurship Award (IERA) for his
groundbreaking innovation, the ArmMotus™ EMU. This prestigious award celebrated
his pioneering approach, which seamlessly integrated adaptive rehabilitation
with entertainment technology, signifying its potential to revolutionise the
healthcare landscape. The ArmMotus™ EMU, a 3D back-drivable upper limb
rehabilitation robot, introduced a groundbreaking cable-driven mechanism,
positioning it at the forefront of rehabilitation robotics.

The IERA Award, symbolising
the transformation of visionary ideas into tangible products, is a testament to
his entrepreneurial drive. Jointly sponsored by the IEEE Robotics and
Automation Society (RAS) and the International Federation of Robotics (IFR),
