An EIT Digital Wellbeing Networking Event

EIT Digital Stockholm
164 40 Kista, Sweden
Combining data analytics with wearable sensors allows to better monitor physical and athletic performance to prevent injuries. Further, physiotherapeutic exercises in combination with remote sensing and gamification empowers outpatient motor rehabilitation.
Smart sensors can gather subtle changes in biomechanical data overtime. Using predictive analytics, onbody smart sensors can use these readings to detect early warning signs of health problems. This can be a benefit to reduce risks, make healthcare systems more efficient and reduce costs.
This networking event is also an opportunity to better understand the benefits of engaging in the strongest Digital Wellbeing community in Europe – in the ecosystem of EIT Digital.
