Projekt Adaptify

Abstract

The joint project Adaptify will develop a new generation of full-body motion-based games for the support of physiotherapy and rehabilitation. With funding by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) and a total project volume of 1.71 million Euros, five research and industry partners will prototype a platform for highly personalized games for health that respond to the individual capabilities and requirements of each user. Utilizing the tracking capabilities of a combination of the latest generation of consumer-grade optical body trackers and a pressure-sensing training mat, the project focuses on lower-back physiotherapy, rehabilitation, and prevention for adult and older adult target groups.
