ORCATECH Funded as a National Roybal Center
The National Institute on Aging (NIA) has just announced that it will be renewing funding for ORCATECH as an Edward R. Roybal Center for Translational Research on Aging. The goal of the nationally-funded Roybal Centers is to move innovative aging research out of the lab and into practice to help our society support an aging population better and sooner, and ORCATECH researchers are thrilled to continue pursuing this mission with the support of the NIA.
Measurement of In-Home Movement May Help Identify Cognitive Decline Sooner
ORCATECH researcher Daniel Austin, PhD, published a new article the journal PloS ONE demonstrating that in-home mobility is highly predictable. This suggests individuals’ deviations from predictable activity may allow detection of important cognitive or functional declines when they occur. The ORCATECH data set used for this analysis had almost 15,000,000 observations from 19 participants over 5 years of in-home monitoring.
