Over the last decade, we've seen a huge influx in the use of wearable technologies, from wristwatches to wearable devices, creating vast amounts of data on movement. Measuring human movement allows us to build solutions in applications spanning medical, sport, ergonomics to name a few. Already widely used in animation productions, elite athletes now use motion sensors to enhance their performance and sports enthusiasts to improve their tennis serve or golf swing. In healthcare, wearable tech is helping people to monitor their heart rates, sleep patterns and fitness levels.
The application of wearable technology in education is an expanding area of interest to both educators and researchers in this field. In light of this, we've decided to organize a webinar to discuss more about educational and research applications of wearable technologies.
The webinar was hosted by Arun Vydhyanathan, Business Manager for Wearable Sensors at Xsens, and Dr Jason Konrath, an expert in Biomechanics and Exercise and Health Science. They talked about wearable technologies, its application in education and presented the XsensDOT curriculum.
