From June 25th till June 28th, Roessingh Research and Development was present at the International Conference on Ambulatory Monitoring of Physical Activity and Movement (ICAMPAM) organized by the International Society for the Measurement of Physical Behaviour in Maastricht. During the conference, there were presentations related to activity monitoring in daily life, movement sensors, physical activity guidelines, sleep monitoring, and physical activity behavior patterns. The conference attracts researchers from across the world, but with the same scientific interests.
Researcher Miriam Cabrita organized a symposium with colleague Harm op den Akker and two other speakers. The topic of this symposium was monitoring physical activity in daily life and promoting an active lifestyle to prevent chronic diseases. The Council of Coaches project was used as an example of how technology can contribute to an active lifestyle. Moreover, junior researchers Mattiènne van der Kamp and Roos Bulthuis presented part of their PhD research during the poster sessions.
With this, Roessingh Research and Development was well represented during one of the largest conferences focusing on daily activity monitoring, motion, and ambulatory sensing. In 2021, the next edition of ICAMPAM will be held in Keystone, Colorado.
