#Digital Health

Information and communication technology plays an increasingly important role in the healthcare system. Digital Health research takes place at the interface between healthcare, social sciences and digitalisation – among the results are healthcare apps and improved methods for research, diagnosis, therapy and rehabilitation.


ELSA- Evaluation of simple gait analysis devices

Evaluation of the effectiveness of rehabilitation measures after reconstruction of the anterior cruciate ligament using simplified gait analysis


Evaluation of the accuracy of non-invasive hip joint centre estimation methods for clinical gait analysis in children and adolescents

SensiTrack - Tracking vs Privacy in the Workplace 4.0

Developing measures to support employee privacy whwn using tracking systems in industry and comparing positive aspects of tracking technologies with regard to occupational safety


Scientific exchange with South Africa in the field of digital technologies
