In Patras InnoVation Quest Expo 80 exhibitors presented their excellent work, the results of the research done at Academic Institutions, Research Institutes and Innovative Enterprises, The attendance of visitors exceeding 5,500 showed that society and businesses have embraced this effort while at the same time distinguished scientists, contributors to innovative entrepreneurship and the political world also attended the event.
OActive partner, University of Patras (Visualization and Virtual Reality Group) received the Grand Technical Award, among the twenty teams that participated in the OpenSim Advanced User Workshop that was held at Stanford University during 28-31 March 2018. The paper submitted entitled “Multi-scale analysis of the knee complex” aims to develop multi-scale, patient-specific models of the knee to predict and prevent the progression of osteoarthritis using coupled rigid-body and finite element (FE) analyses. This work is part of the OACTIVE – H2020 project. Some of the project goals are to develop patient-specific knee models in order to assess individuals’ knee mechanics at a tissue level, so that proactive measurements, such augmented reality gait retraining can be made to avoid the progression of OA.

OActive project will be presented at the 56th Congress of the Spanish Society of Rehabilitation and Physical Medicine (Sociedad Española de Rehabilitación y Medicina Física- SERMEF) by the OActive Partners HULAFE on 16-19 May 2018.
After the success of the previous annual meeting in Pamplona, in Cádiz and in Málaga in 2018 the congress will be held in Gijón, Asturia. The Congress covert the scientific fields of neurorehabilitation, skeletal muscle pathology, pain, the relationship with patient associations, management, innovation among others and related to the technical program it will focus on continuous training in intervention, ultrasounds and biomechanics.
