SPRINT: working together to mobilize the elderly

SPRINT is one of eight Centres of Research Excellence set up as part of the Innovative Medical Devices Initiative, a partnership dedicated to improving and restoring mobility among the elderly.

The main aim of SPRINT, a partnership led by the University of Groningen, the UMCG and the University of Twente, is to ensure that the healthcare system remains affordable and feasible in terms of staffing. SPRINT aims to play an important part in finding solutions to this problem by helping to keep the elderly mobile.
