The excitement is building ahead of the Proactive Investors’ Innovation Forum later this week that will showcase the next generation of big hitters in the technology.
And as you’ll see the event, being held at The Chesterfield Hotel, 35 Charles Street, Mayfair, this Thursday from 6pm, has something for almost every investor’s palate.
It will include a live demonstration of the robotic exoskeleton developed by Rex, which is helping the wheelchair-bound walk again. CLICK HERE FOR THE VIDEO.

If standing in line at the amusement park in the sweltering summer heat isn’t your thing, then you’ll want to hear more from Accesso.
Commercially it is gaining huge traction for its virtual queuing and ticketing as record results for the past year revealed.
Revenues rose by 22% to US$75.1mln with the improvement stronger on a pro-forma basis.

Akers Biosciences, headed by founder Ray Akers, is at a crucial juncture as moves out of the development phase and brings the first of its new diagnostic kits to the market.
Last month it revealed sales of its test for people with an allergy to blood thinner Heparin more than doubled in 2014.
It was the driver behind a 24% rise in sales overall at the diagnostic test group, which also saw a first US$1mln order from China.
Total sales rose by 24% to US$4.43mln, with a US$864,000 order also received for its rapid cholesterol test for Australia, Singapore and the Middle East.
Last, but by no means least, is Alliance Pharma, a great backstop investment for any small-cap portfolio.
