Apply for a Pilot Project Grant of up to $30,000

The Restore Center<http://restore.stanford.edu/> seeks proposals for our pilot project program. The program awards seed grants to innovative and meritorious projects that will accelerate the use of sensor and video technology in rehabilitation research and will advance real-world monitoring and delivery of medical rehabilitation for individuals with impaired movement. Applicants can request up to $30,000 in funding. Individuals from underrepresented racial and ethnic groups, as well as individuals with disabilities, are encouraged to apply. Applications are due October 5th, 2022. Learn more and apply<https://restore.stanford.edu/pilot-funding/pilot-project-application/>

Upcoming Webinar on Free-Living Running Data and Energy Expenditure

Wednesday, August 31st, 2022, 9:00 AM Pacific Time

We are pleased to announce the upcoming webinar by Dr. Jess Selinger from Queens University hosted by the Mobilize<http://mobilize.stanford.edu/>/Restore<http://restore.stanford.edu/> Centers. She will present her approach to characterize runners’ speeds in a free-living environment using a commercial wearable device and determine if preferred speed is consistent with task- or energy-dependent objectives. In the second part of the webinar, Dr. Selinger will review several key best practices for analyzing large-scale health data from wearables, and how she applied them in her analysis.
