Wearable Technologies for Sports 27 October 2021

Through digitalisation the sports industry is currently undergoing a transformation process. Wearable technologies, e.g. electronic devices that can be worn as accessories, embedded in clothing, implanted in the user's body, or even tattooed on the skin, are changing how we experience and practice sport and how physical conditions and health are evolving.

The conference organised by the BFH Center Health Technologies, will feature a keynote and short flashlight presentations highlighting the current state in industry and providing insights into future developments. Through several workshops, the event will focus on networking and exchange among each other.
