Smart Prevention, Rehabilitation & INtervention Technologies for improved mobility
SPRINT is a Centre of Research Excellence founded in 2011. It is aimed towards senior citizens regaining or improving their mobility, a goal that is gaining importance because of the ageing populations of many western societies.
The central within SPRINT are Smart Mobility Devices: smart technical solutions to help especially elderly people to longer maintain their independent mobility. The new devices prevent a decrease in mobility and provides better rehabilitation, preferably within the home environment. In addition SPRINT will develop new prostheses and orthoses.
The various new technologies will be developed in close cooperation with: Universitair Medisch Centrum Groningen, Rijksuniversiteit Groningen, Universiteit Twente, and a variety of companies and institutions.
