We are happy to announce that a member of the OActive Project
consortium, Dr Riccardo Gottardi has received the Young Investigator award from the journal “Cell, Tissues, Organs” for his work on the regenerative response of cartilage to different loading regimens. The journal focuses on cell and developmental biology, stem cell research, tissue engineering, in vitro systems and regenerative biology.
Congratulations Riccardo!!!

The OActive Project partner University of Nicosia participated in the EC stakeholder workshop on the ‘Human Digital Twin’👇👇👇 representing the OACTIVE project.
 
 The Human Digital Twin bears significant potential in facilitating personalised and precise clinical predictions and decisions based on the individual’s genetic, physiological, and phenotypic characteristics.
 
This workshop aimed at identifying the status quo in the development and use of Digital Twins in Healthcare, from basic research, pre-clinical and clinical research, market uptake to health care provision.

The Osteoarthritis Foundation International (OAFI) is organising the OAFI Pre Congress Day 2020, an event aimed at promoting research on osteoarthritis and musculoskeletal disorders and especially addressed to the scientific community, health authorities, and companies.
The OAFI Pre-Congress will be broadcasted on Monday the 2nd of November from 10 am till 1 pm (CEST).
Take a look at the agenda below.
 
The videos of the Pre-congress will also be available on our YouTube Channel after the live streaming. To Watch the Pre Congress Day 2020 click here : https://www.oafifoundation.com/…/oafi-organizes-the-ii…/

The Visualization and Virtual Reality Group has been selected by the European Commission as a finalist in the category “Tech of Society” for the Innovation Radar Prize 2019. The Innovation Radar is among others a “scouting” activity of the EC and aims to identify innovative research of single organizations in the context of European projects. Initially 40 finalists were selected spread in four categories. After online voting of the public the VVR group has been ranked 2nd in the Tech for Society category.  https://ec.europa.eu/futurium/en/innovation-radar-prize/tech-for-society-2019

Within the OActive project, University of Patras is interested in predicting the severity of osteoarthritis and then derive a personalized intervention strategy to delay the progression of the disease. To achieve this, they rely on automatic methods for creating multi-scale subject-specific finite element models of the knee from magnetic resonance images. These models are further constrained from experimentally measured kinematics and externally applied forces in order to simulate more complex movement behaviors like gait. Through simulation, the loading of the soft tissues is identified and is is decided how to change the habits of individuals through gait retraining and augmented reality.

There are two major outcomes related to this work. The first is related to the subject-specific modeling, simulation and analysis of the knee mechanics, which is of baseline research nature with long term goals targeting not only to osteoarthritis but planning of surgeries for anterior ligament reconstruction and knee replacement through simulation. The second is related to the development of a modular framework for extracting meaningful quantities from experimental measurements and musculoskeletal models in real-time. This can facilitate application in the broad field of rehabilitation, ergonomics, control of exoskeleton and assistive devices.

University of Nicosia, the coordinator of OActive project is organising a one day Workshop on Osteoarthritis dedicated to the description of the European Research Program OActive and will serve as a recruitment day for early stage patients and persons with high risk to present OA. The workshop will be hosted by Apollonion Private Hospital of Nicosia, on Saturday 16th of March. Future treatments and methods of diagnosis will be analysed, while the workshop agenda includes topics related to: 1. “Osteoarthritis: What is it and how it is treated?”, 2. “OActive Research Program: Benefits of Program Participation” and 3.”Walking Analysis – How it Can Help You”.

HULAFE, one of the partners of the OActive consortium will participate at the XXVIII congress of SVMEFR, which will take place on 1-2 March 2019, in Benidorm, Spain. SVMEFR is the annual Congress of Physicians Specialists in Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation of the Valencian Community. It is a national conference organised by the Rehabilitation Services of the Department of Health of Marina Baixa and the Valencian Society of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation. The event attracts high level scientists and the focus will be given to the topics of “Nervous Therapeutic Blocks” and “Brain damage”.
