The University of Auckland is advertising a funded Masters project in Health Informatics:
Introduction of robotic assistance into aged care: falls and falls prevention
This masters project is part of the University of Auckland healthcare robotics collaboration with ETRI, a Korean software company, and is supported by a grant from MoRST.
The masters student will examine activity patterns of older people in Selwyn Village, Auckland, in order to link these patterns to falls and develop robotic-based interventions to prevent falls. As part of this project you will use activity monitors to collect data over three months on those who have fallen frequently in the past.
The masters fund supplies a stipend of $14,000 and some research costs and payment of enrolment fees.
If you are interested in applying to do this masters project, please email Associate Professor Ngaire Kerse at [email protected] or phone her on +64 27 439 3788
