Demystifying human performance from elite athletes to older people
Join Motek on 7th December at 1pm CET for a free webinar: “Demystifying human performance from elite athletes to frail older people“.
This presentation will discuss the use of novel computational and experimental tools in biomechanics to address some of the major neuro-musculoskeletal health issues that our world faces now.
The world is getting older. By 2050 the global population of older people will have more than doubled to 2.1 billion. This demographic shift will continue to affect all aspects of society including health and long-term care. The world health organisation recently named the next 10 years as a decade of healthy aging.
Dr. Hossein Mokhtarzadeh collaborative research in the last decade aimed to contribute to improving the lives of all the people across the life span in global action on healthy aging through technological innovation. In this webinar, you will learn:
- how combined computer-based models and imaging techniques may help prevent knee injuries among young athletes and predict the location of spine fractures among older adults.
- how physical and cognitive performances are interdependent using combined virtual reality, and robotics systems such as the CAREN system from Motek Medical.
