China-Israel hub marks anniversary

Putuo District’s China-Israel Innovation Hub, a milestone in scientific cooperation between the two countries, celebrated its first anniversary yesterday.

A wide range of new products featuring Israeli technologies have been developed in the hub, including a hand exoskeleton, Dead Sea mud mask, non-invasive glucometer and thermal imaging scope.

Thirty-two companies, incubators and projects operate there — the former site of the Shanghai Hero Pen Factory in Taopu Smart City — primarily in cybersecurity, intelligent manufacturing and life health.

“The innovation hub has become a key platform to drive innovative cooperation between Israel and China,” said Edward Shapira, Israel’s consul general in Shanghai. “Despite COVID-19, the hub still attracts many companies.”

One company in the hub, Ai-Care medical technology, unveiled a soft hand exoskeleton that can be used to help people with hand paralysis in rehabilitation and daily movements. A user’s movement intentions are analyzed by a sensor via bio-electric signals on the skin surface.

Another firm, Tianyu Elderly Care Service, released a Bluetooth hearing-aid earphone that features strong noise reduction and can slow talking speeds without distorting voices.

The non-invasive glucometer from Aozhen Bio can test blood sugar through saliva, while a Dead Sea mud mask contains 21 minerals and other ingredients to ease wrinkles.

The Putuo District government signed an agreement with cybersecurity firm 360 yesterday to jointly develop an information technology public service platform to serve startups, scientists and projects from Israel and China.
