Participating in the ARMOR project

I participated yesterday in a study which was part of a Dutch national project called ARMOR; its goal is to develop a personalized system for training soldiers and helping them avoid injuries while training. As the first step, participants are hooked up with two sensors namely an accelerometer and a pressure sensor integrated in their boots. Then the participants are asked to walk for 30 meters while carrying different weights. This research is being conducted by Sofia Silveira, a master’s student of biomedical engineering who is doing her ERASMUS+ training program at UTwente.
