The CTA Foundation partnered with the Center for Inclusive Design and Engineering at the University of Colorado to create its first fellowship. The fellowship is within the Department of Bioengineering and under the direction of Dr. Cathy Bodine.
The inaugural pilot program is in partnership with Anthem Memory Care to study fall detection technology in older adults. Specifically exploring whether wearable technology can track the types of falls as well as potentially predict or event prevent falls in seniors. In addition they will identify top Medicare costs related to falls and determine if wearables can alleviate some of these major medical costs.
