Dear colleagues,
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 which makes it an important surrogate marker for disease severity and progress, but more importantly for therapeutic decisions and quality of life.
Modern sensor-based motion detection systems are developed that (I) assess motor function in numerous disorder throughout the course of the disease, (II) support therapeutic decision and (III) provide objective measurement for therapeutic efficacy in clinical studies.
The 3rd Symposium on Automated Mobility Analysis in Erlangen will focus on the current knowledge and applications of motion detection system in the clinic.
We kindly invite you to participate in our symposium at Universitätsklinikum Erlangen (Program).
