ANIMUS attended the Science and Innovation Festival in Larissa that was held on 11-13 of October 2018. The event was hosted by the University of Thessaly on the occasion of the completion of its 30 years of operation. The Thessaly Science Festival brought to the public the unbreakable connection of science and technology to everyday life. The main objectives of the Festival were to inform the public on the high quality scientific research done in Greece, to provide answers to complex scientific issues, to inspire and create new standards in the field of science and, of course, to encourage young people to think about a career close to science.
During the interactive exhibition, the ANIMUS Recovery & Rehabilitation Centre in cooperation with the National Center for Research and Technology (CERTH) and the Department of Physical Education and Sports Science of University of Thessaly presented a system consisting of a 40cm x 60cm X 15cm force platform and a synchronized camera showing the human image and the ground response force, inviting individuals to participate in the tests that help the users learn how to place their body and knees to minimize unnecessary burden.
