He suffered from cerebral palsy since childhood and typed with the tip of his tongue against his lips. His science fiction was shortlisted for the grand prize.


Cctv news: Chen Weiqi is an online writer whose pen name is Lobster from Heaven. At the age of 35, it took him ten years to complete a 210,000-word novel "Advanced Life", which was also shortlisted for the 10th Global Chinese Science Fiction Xingyun Award earlier this month.

Chen Weiqi suffered from cerebral palsy since childhood and typed with the tip of his tongue against his lips. His science fiction was shortlisted for the grand prize. When his hands can’t knock on the keyboard, he types with the tip of his tongue against his lips and writes one literary work after another. Although he didn’t finish junior high school, it didn’t stop the "supplies" given to him by active thinking and reading enthusiasm.

At the beginning of this month, the 10th Global Chinese Science Fiction Xingyun Award announced the shortlist of works. Among the best novels, Chen Weiqi’s work "Advanced Life" was among them. Some netizens who are familiar with him lamented that Chen Weiqi’s creative experience itself is an extraordinary advanced process of life.

Chen Weiqi, who suffers from cerebral palsy and can’t stand and walk, can only move his left and right little fingers with his hands. He didn’t finish junior high school. He taught himself by surfing the Internet and wrote works of nearly one million words.

Can’t type with both hands, can’t pronounce clearly, and can’t use voice input. Chen Weiqi has explored a special typing method.

Once, Chen Weiqi tried to click on the keyboard with the only movable left little finger, but this method didn’t work because the arm was out of control. He simply tried all his five senses. His nose is too short and his chin is too large. Typing with his mouth biting chopsticks will make his mouth water … …

Finally, he finally found that typing with the tip of his tongue against his lips, although not fast, could last longer. So, with this method, he sat in front of the computer for more than ten hours every day and clicked the keyboard thousands of times with the tip of his tongue and lips to try to finish his writing.

Chen weiqiIf it hurts, you owe your ass a little. If it hurts on the left, push it slightly to the right. If it hurts on the right, push it harder on the left.

In Chen Weiqi’s science fiction, most of the protagonists can break through their own limitations through scientific and technological means, explore the universe and fight against evil forces, which may be pinning his desire to get rid of the real illness.

For ordinary people, it is natural and simple to control their body movements; For Chen Wei, this is an almost impossible luxury. Because he had cerebral palsy since childhood, he barely learned to walk at the age of seven, but he always had active thinking in his memory.

However, during the first summer vacation, his illness was aggravated by a sudden high fever, and he was bedridden for the next two years. At that time, he felt more desperate than ever. However, with strong willpower, his body gradually changed. Finally, one day, he sat up from the bed and began to teach himself junior high school courses. In 2001, he asked his family to buy him a computer with Internet access.

Through the Internet, Chen Weiqi read materials about medicine, philosophy, literature and so on, and sprouted the idea of writing. After finding a way to type with the tip of the tongue and lips, he kept trying to write and contribute. In 2003, his short science fiction stories were published on a website, which made him see hope.

Writing science fiction, let him regain confidence in confusion. In the next ten years, he completed the manuscript of the long science fiction "Advanced Life" and won many awards in online science fiction essays. However, in 2013, a serious illness struck again, causing him to lose consciousness below the head.

Unable to give up the manuscript of the work and unwilling to fate, Chen Wei made a strong effort to eat and let himself compete with his physical illness.

After half a year, Chen Weiqi’s illness gradually eased. With the help of his family and netizens, his two works were published successively.

A strong desire for creation enabled Chen Weiqi to find the direction, which supported him not to be depressed and not to give up. With the unimaginable efforts of ordinary people, he broke through the crisis and published his first novel.

Writing not only lit up his life, but also made him meet many friends who supported him. The warmth and friendship conveyed more confidence and courage. Today, Chen Weiqi has begun to try to get out of the house and embrace life.

In Chen Weiqi’s home, there is a Bluetooth device that uses the head to control the mouse, which was bought by netizens. Everyone often puts forward opinions and suggestions to help him improve his works. These warm actions are silently remembered by him. After the publication of Advanced Life, Chen Weiqi specially asked his family to buy 60 copies, printed his pen name with the seal sent by netizens, and sent it to those who helped him.

With more and more communication with friends, Chen Weiqi is becoming more and more cheerful.

Now, Chen Weiqi began to walk out of the house in a wheelchair to communicate with literary societies in some colleges and universities, share his writing experience face to face, and convey his goodwill and feelings.

Chen weiqiI am lucky to be born in such an era and such a society. It can be said that if there is no computer, no internet and the development of information technology during this period, I simply can’t imagine that a person like me can do things.

It is unfortunate for Chen Weiqi to be ill and have difficulty in moving since childhood, but the particularity of a writer lies in that any experience may become the source of creation. Chen Weiqi said that when you can’t write, you should also bite the bullet and write down, and then optimize everything. Isn’t this what he learned from the struggle against illness? I will walk till the water checks my path is inevitable in life, and we must never stop at this time. Only by persisting in moving forward can we finally have a day in then sit and watch the rising clouds.

Today, Chen Weiqi has walked out of that room and actively communicated with more people and integrated into society. This is a very happy thing. Finding one’s own existence and advanced way is not only what Chen Weiqi has to work hard to do, but also worthy of our serious consideration.

The list of the top 100 future medical care in 2023 is released: but the road ahead, no questions asked.

"What is the ultimate goal of medical innovation?" This is a question that every medical person will ponder, but it is almost unsolvable. Whenever the concept of new technology sets off a wave of medical innovation, countless pioneers will emerge in every possible direction. Although medical innovation faces many uncertainties and complicated external environment, they still insist on pursuing the 0.01% certainty with 99.99% efforts. As a result, the source of innovation in life science can spring up and rush in all directions.

Looking back on the road of medical innovation since 2022, the development of technology integration is still the main theme. Companies in various subdivisions of AIGC, brain science, synthetic biology, genomics, organoid and biochip are active. Judging from the barometer of medical industry innovation and investment and financing data, despite the overall economic downturn in 2022, 1,439 medical and health enterprises completed a new round of financing in 2022.

In addition, the last listed companies, UIH Medical, Huada Zhizao and Zhiyun Health, successfully IPO in 2022 respectively, and successfully "graduated" from the list with excellent performance appraisal.

"Unity of knowing and doing" is the wisdom of walking, and "no question about the west and the east" is the courage of walking.Looking back at the leader’s route, we can see that the trendsetter in the medical industry "respects life" at the beginning, and with the help of the driving force of policies and technology, bravely shoulders the responsibility of industrial structure change, further broadening the way forward.

Report release

The Top 100 Future Medical Care Companies of Arterial Network will launch the growth report of the top 100 enterprises every year according to the list of the Top 100 Future Medical Care Companies of that year. On the occasion of the 2023 TOP100 Future Healthcare Conference, the Growth Analysis Report of TOP100 Future Healthcare Enterprises in 2023 was released again, which comprehensively analyzed the data of the five major enterprises in China TOP100 Innovative Medical Devices List, China TOP100 Innovative Biomedical List, China TOP100 Innovative Digital Healthcare List, China Top 100 Innovative Medical Services List and China Top 100 Innovative Business and Supply Chain Service List. We expect to summarize the growth law and industrial change trend of enterprises with the help of multi-dimensional analysis of the enterprises listed in the top 100 medical care list every year, and provide reference for medical and health enterprises and entrepreneurs.

The cumulative valuation of listed companies exceeded RMB 1 trillion for four consecutive years, and the average valuation of TOP10 companies reached RMB 23.326 billion.In this year’s list, there are five lists of medical devices, biomedicine, digital medical care, medical services, commerce and supply chain services, totaling 500 enterprises, with a total valuation of about 1.5 trillion yuan. The average valuation of listed companies was RMB 3.068 billion, down about 16% compared with 2022 (with an average valuation of RMB 3.657 billion). Similar to the previous list, 75% of the listed companies are valued in the range of RMB 1-6 billion, and enterprises in this valuation range constitute the main group of unlisted companies in the big health industry. In addition, a total of 17 companies have a valuation exceeding 10 billion, and 5 companies have a valuation of more than 20 billion. The average valuation of the TOP10 companies has reached 23.942 billion yuan, of which 6 companies are digital medical enterprises.

The valuation performance of enterprises in the medical device list is stable, and the data of medical robots on the list is bright.In 2022, medical device enterprises still achieved steady growth under the high base in 2021. Compared with the other four main lists, the total valuation of enterprises on the medical device list was stable, and the valuation and number of medical robot enterprises on the list increased significantly compared with last year. On the one hand, excluding the weakening effect of the listing of two super unicorns, Lianying Medical and Huada Zhizhi, on the total valuation of the device list, the number of financing events in the primary market of medical devices exceeded 400 in 22 years (surpassing innovative drugs to become the medical and health track with the largest number of financing events in 2022), and high-frequency and large-scale financing boosted the valuation of medical device enterprises. On the other hand, medical robots are currently one of the hottest tracks in the field of innovative equipment, which is favored by capital. Taking surgical robots as an example, the total number of financing in 22 years has exceeded 30 times, which makes the listed data of this track enterprise more competitive.

The innovative drug track has picked up, and 22 years of financing has accelerated, helping the biomedical list valuation to lead the main list.The development of frontier biotechnology tracks such as cell therapy, gene therapy and nucleic acid drugs is the main driving factor for the investment and financing in the biomedical field and the further growth of the valuation of the track enterprises. In 2022, the biomedical field has made outstanding financing achievements in the primary market at home and abroad. At the same time, the current domestic pharmaceutical industry is undergoing structural changes, bringing new growth points and ensuring that some innovative enterprises remain active. Based on the analysis of the enterprises listed in the current biomedical list, a number of innovative biomedical enterprises in China with international competitiveness began to emerge, leading the biomedical list in terms of valuation. In addition, under the investment strategy of paying attention to biotechnology and investing early and investing small, a large number of early biomedical enterprises have obtained high financing, with a valuation exceeding RMB 1 billion.

The digital medical unicorn has the best valuation performance, and the overall valuation level of the digital medical list is relatively optimistic.At present, the sub-fields clearly covered by digital medical care include digital therapy, medical informatization, AI+ medical care, etc., which are used to realize disease prevention and management, auxiliary diagnosis, auxiliary treatment, clinical workflow, rehabilitation, new drug research and development and other related applications. Generally speaking, the capital selection is more cautious when the investment and financing ebb, and the underlying technology of digital medical care is indeed developing continuously with the naked eye. Enterprises deeply involved in this field have very optimistic and certain growth potential at both B-end and C-end, and the innovation and foresight based on emerging digital technologies are the main reasons for the increase in valuation.

The valuation level of medical service, business and supply chain service enterprises is low. The valuation of unicorn enterprises with high growth medical services has made steady progress. However, the medical service enterprises represented by genetic testing services and specialized chain services were affected by the epidemic situation in the first half of 22 years and the adjustment of epidemic policy in the second half, and their valuation levels declined. In addition, due to the expansion of the newly established list, the overall valuation level of the companies listed in this new business and supply chain service list is the lowest compared with other lists.

Beijing and Shanghai have obvious geographical advantages, and they continue to rank TOP2 in the list of enterprises.In terms of distribution cities, the statistical results of the list data show that there are obvious advantages in the number of large health-related innovative enterprises in Shanghai, with a total of 121 listed enterprises. Among them, the number of enterprises in medical devices, biomedicine and commercial and supply chain services ranks in the top three. The cumulative valuation of listed companies in Shanghai is 337.267 billion RMB, with an average valuation of 2.787 billion RMB. The number of listed enterprises in Beijing ranks second, with a total of 116 enterprises on the list. Among them, the number of enterprises in the fields of digital medical care, medical services and biomedicine ranks in the top. The cumulative valuation of listed enterprises in Beijing is 311.915 billion RMB, with an average valuation of 2.683 billion RMB. Similar to the results of previous years’ list selection, the whole industrial chain of Great Health is concentrated in Shanghai and Beijing, with 237 listed enterprises in the two cities, with a cumulative valuation of nearly 650 billion yuan, accounting for 42.18% of the total valuation of listed enterprises.

Yangtze River Delta Economic Zone and Guangdong, Hong Kong and Macao Economic Zone are still fertile ground for the growth of big healthy enterprises; Shenzhen and Hangzhou are the second echelon of large health enterprises; Guangzhou and Suzhou are the third echelon of large health enterprises.The medical and health industrial clusters generally follow the growth path of "local agglomeration-regional cooperation-global competition and cooperation" in space, and industrial clusters have become the new engine of regional development. In addition to Beijing and Shanghai, the Yangtze River Delta Economic Circle, represented by Hangzhou and Suzhou, and the Guangdong, Hong Kong and Macao Economic Circle, represented by Shenzhen and Guangzhou, have built a highly competitive industrial environment for the development of the medical and health industry. In particular, business and supply chain enterprise services cover a wide range, including medicine and equipment CRO/CMO/CDMO/CSO, life science tools and services, innovative channels and marketing services, innovative payment services, logistics services, medical insurance and financial services. Therefore, paying attention to the distribution of commercial and supply chain service enterprises can further observe the industrial completeness of each city. More than half of the listed enterprises in Shanghai and Beijing are fertile ground for the growth of current commercial and supply chain service enterprises.

Chengdu continues to lead the new first-tier cities in the west and gather highlands for medical and health enterprises in the west.It is worth mentioning that the big health industry in the western economic circle with Chengdu as the core is rising rapidly. The listed companies in the city are all leaders in subdivided tracks, gaining competitive advantages in their respective fields of deep cultivation, pushing up the average valuation to 5.6 billion yuan, ranking first in all cities. Chengdu itself is an important economic center and scientific and technological innovation center in the western region, with a sound industrial base and talent advantages, which provides a good development environment for the big health industry. In addition, the government continues to adopt a full-cycle support policy for innovative enterprises in this field, attracting a large number of capital and talents to enter the big health industry in this region.
