Welcome to the 6th Automated Mobility Analysis Symposium Erlangen
Mobility defines quality of life in health and disease. Sensor-based information on mobility is increasingly introduced
into healthy living. It also supports diagnostic workup and therapeutic decisions in a variety of disorders. In an ageing society
impairment of motor function is of increasing medical and economical relevance.
In particular neurological, skeletomuscular and cardiovascular disorders reduce the ability to move independently and limit the autonomy of patients. Even though the disease causing mechanisms are specific for each disorder, mobility in general is limited. This makes mobility an important surrogate marker for disease severity and progress, but more importantly for therapeutic decisions and assessment of quality of life.
Modern sensor-based motion detection systems are developed that (I) assess motor function in numerous disorders throughout the course of the disease, (II) support therapeutic decision, and (III) provide objective measurement for therapeutic efficacy in clinical studies. Also, they can be used for early detection of disease entities or progression of disorders.
The 6th Automated Mobility Analysis Symposium Erlangen will focus on the current knowledge and applications of motion assessment systems in clinical research.
We kindly invite you to participate in our Symposium to be held in the Universitätsklinikum Erlangen.
