In September 2019, TechBalance was awarded with the Longevity Business Call award at Expo + Forum promoted by Aging 2.0 and by the accelerator Ativen in São Paulo.
TechBalance CEO, Fabiana Almeida, was interviewed by Olhar Digital Plus [+], a tech news program from Sony TV Channel, to represent a HealthTech startup incubated by the HubSP - USP.
TechBalance made its presence in the Aging 2.0 Conference at Unibes Cultural that discussed how digital solutions can promote the care practice among older people.
Fabiana Almeida, TechBalance CEO, was invited by Live University to speak in the Switch - Digital Transformation Symposium - an event that proposed the debate about innovations, experiences, and trends in the field of Digital Transformation.
Important publication achieved toward the validation of a patented technology that demonstrated through a trial how movement data captured by a smartphone attached to the patient's waist is able to represent the body movement, balance and fall risk.
TechBalance had the honor to participate in Arena do Futuro, a major technology conference, that celebrated in its last edition São Paulo's 465th Anniversary and debated Longevity and Fall Prevention.
Stabilometric postural for Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU) @Signal Processing Symposium - State University of Campinas (UNICAMP)
Abstract: Inertial sensors have been proposed for posture balancing measures due to its portability features and lower costs. However, the questionable accuracy of the positioning data produced by these devices still confers the dubious credibility of the results. Our objective was to develop a stabilometric analysis from a mobile Inertial...
Wearable Technology for MEMs sensors for older adults’ balance @Congress of Biomechanics - Federal University of Rio Grande do Sul (UFRS)
Abstract: With a 40% increase in the number of deaths by fall between 2005 and 2014, the estimations are to register 100.000 deaths by 2030. The wearable technology by inertial sensors is being studied for the clinical support on the assessment, treatment and remote monitoring of elderly patients. A 25% reduction of these deaths can be estimated if...
Inertial Accelerometers can be applied for CoM and CoP studies in the postural monitoring @ Physiotherapy Symposium - University of São Paulo (USP)
Abstract: The Inertial Accelerometers have been considered very promising in postural monitoring studies for its accuracy, test-retest reliability and portability. However, its application for the analysis of the center of pressure (CoP) and the center of mass (CoM) still presents unspecific results when comparing with the force platform (FP) and...
