Health Challenges and COVID: Enabling Monitoring, Exercise, and Rehabilitation using Wearables

Introducing wearables to the healthcare sector is vital to ensure remote accessibility to health and rehabilitation services, aiding in the decrease of geographical healthcare differences currently present.

In this two-part webinar series, organised by the smart sensor devices for rehabilitation and connected health (SENDoc) research team and the Health Innovation Research Alliance Northern Ireland (HIRANI), SENDoc present findings from 3 years of transnational research on monitoring, exercise, and rehabilitation using wearable sensors.

It will cover state of the art sensing techniques for Rehabilitation, Parkinson’s Disease, Rheumatoid Arthritis, and falls prediction, amongst others, examining the results from clinical trials performed during the project and discussing the problems currently blocking widespread adoption.

You  can also participate in a series of panel sessions where clinicians, physiotherapists, technicians, funders and wearable companies will discuss challenges and opportunities for the wearable industry and its users in the current COVID climate.

The sessions will be of particular interest to researchers and data scientists working in the area of connected health technology, people interested in remote rehabilitation or remote monitoring, companies developing sensors for use in healthcare, and Physiotherapists and Clinicians willing to progress their practice and adopt technology.
