Researchers at St. Pölten UAS have developed, among other things, intelligent shoe soles that make improper walking stresses audible. The research supports rehabilitation, improves the analysis and visualization of health data which assists therapists in their diagnosis. They are also inventing new technological solutions that make it possible for older people to live an active and independent life.
