Contributions of the St. Pölten UAS to Science Communication
Last Friday of September, the European Researchers’ Night was held on site in Graz and online. The event takes place once a year in various cities across Europe to provide information on current research projects and give insights into researchers’ everyday lives. The St. Pölten UAS contributed three presentations on ongoing projects to the programme:
Healthy Gait through Acoustic Feedback
Michael Iber presented the project SoniGait, which features sensor-equipped shoe insoles that alert their wearer to deviations from the health gait pattern through acoustic signals as part of (preventive) therapeutic measures.
Interprofessional (Further) Training in the Health and Social Sciences
In the form of a science slam presentation, Anita Kidritsch introduced the project INPRO that supports professionals of the health and social sciences in forming networks and aims to inspire teachers to implement interprofessional learning in tertiary education. The project team are convinced that collaboration across the boundaries of individual disciplines serves to improve the treatment of patients.
Active Mobility: Benefits for Health, Environment and Economy
Alexandra Anderluh showed the positive effects that active mobility – walking and cycling – has not only on people’s health and the environment but on the economy as well.
