PhD thesis Narayan Schütz wins Förderpreis Seniorenuniversität Bern

Narayan Schütz has won this year's Senior Citizens' University of Bern Award for Research on Aging for his outstanding dissertation. The prize was awarded to him by the Rector of the University of Bern, Prof. Dr. Christian Leumann, and the President of the Stiftung Seniorenuniversität, Prof. Dr. Andreas Stuck. Now a postdoctoral fellow at Standford University, Narayan has been researching at the Gerontechnology and Rehabilitation research group at the ARTORG Center to what extent contactless sensors at home can create a comprehensive collection of digital readings on health in aging. Such approaches could be used to identify health risks in older persons living alone at an early stage and help them achieve significantly better health through personalized treatment approaches to typical health conditions associated with aging, while reducing healthcare costs.
