Motion analysis for eHealth and mHealth

In addition to the increasing use of digital technologies in healthcare, there is also an increased use of health apps in private life. A common focus of digital solutions is often on promoting physical activity or improving musculoskeletal complaints. To develop these digital solutions, companies need knowledge and the latest findings in the fields of anatomy, physiotherapy and motion analysis. According to the University of Applied Sciences for Health Professions Upper Austria, the FFG qualification seminar "Moving" contributes to the improvement of existing digital solutions and the development of new innovations.

In addition to the increasing use of digital technologies in healthcare, there is also an increased use of health apps in private life. A common focus of digital solutions is often on promoting physical activity or improving musculoskeletal complaints. To develop these digital solutions, companies need knowledge and the latest findings in the fields of anatomy, physiotherapy and motion analysis. According to the University of Applied Sciences for Health Professions Upper Austria, the FFG qualification seminar "Moving" contributes to the improvement of existing digital solutions and the development of new innovations.

The qualification seminar, which is adapted to the needs of the participating companies imparts the required know-how in the fields of anatomy, physiotherapy and motion analysis and at the same time strengthens the participants’ competences in development and innovation. In particular, the strong cross-linking of theoretical and practical content enables processes to be better understood and what is learned to be applied in a practical manner.

In addition, participants gain useful information on both physiotherapy and on the results of current studies regarding the impact of physical activity on health. This will be particularly helpful for the development of digital solutions for the promotion of physical activity or telerehabilitation. Furthermore, the exchange of knowledge and the cooperation between the University of Applied Sciences for Health Professions Upper Austria and the participating companies will be promoted. This may lead to future cooperations and follow-up projects.

This project is funded by the Federal Ministry for Digital and Economic Affairs (bmdw) and is carried out within the programme R&D Competences for Industry of the Austrian Research Promotion Agency (FFG).
