The American Geriatrics Society 2018 Annual Scientific Meeting
Visit us at the American Geriatrics Society Annual Scientific Meeting!
May 3-5, 2018
Stop by booth 723 for live demonstrations of APDM’s Mobility Lab at the American Geriatrics Society (AGS) Annual Scientific Meeting in Orlando, Florida. Used by thousands of researchers and clinicians worldwide, Mobility Lab provides sensitive, reliable, and valid outcome measures for assessing functional mobility anywhere. These outcome measures provide actionable data for early detection of cognitive decline and aid in the assessment of fall-risk. Mobility Lab is now being used in clinical trials for neurological disorders like Parkinson’s disease, and genetic disorders like ataxia.
The American Geriatrics Society is a nationwide, not-for-profit society of geriatrics healthcare professionals dedicated to improving the health, independence, and quality of life of older people. The AGS Annual Scientific Meeting will feature updates and insights on all things geriatrics, including clinical care, innovative models of care and quality improvements, and research on aging, including: clinical trials, epidemiology, ethics, geriatric bioscience, geriatric education, geriatric medicine in other specialties, geriatric syndromes, health services and health policy, neurologic and behavioral science, and more.
Whether you’re researching preventative measures for aging or conducting pharmaceutical clinical trials, Mobility Lab makes it easy to collect, analyze, and store data. Within minutes you can set up, attach APDM’s Opal wearable sensors to your subject, instruct them to perform a standardized test, and get instant results compared to normative values. This automated report provides spatiotemporal parameters that can track a patient’s progress longitudinally and assist in determining intervention response.
APDM’s Stephanie Hertzog will be providing demonstrations of the gait and balance solution, Mobility Lab, currently being used in clinical trials for Parkinson’s disease and ataxia.
