RESEARCH CLUSTER IN AGING IN PLACE
Professor, School of Health and Exercise Science, Faculty of Health and Social Development
This research group is optimizing active and healthy aging at home.
This cross-sectoral research is helping older adults ‘age in place’ or remain in their homes, safely and comfortably, by developing evidence-based, in-home self-management supports and assistive technologies to maintain physical activity, functional independence and social connections.
Cluster members are leaders in their field with expertise in aging, neuromuscular and exercise physiology, sensorimotor control, mobility and risk assessments, fall and injury prevention, biomechanics, artificially intelligent monitoring technologies, health psychology, chronic disease prevention, and personalized lifestyle medicine.
The team received a UBCO Cluster of Research Excellence award in 2020.
