Background and activities
Beatrix Vereijken is Professor at the Department of Neuromedicine and Movement Science at the Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences. She is the principal investigator (PI) for the NTNU Health project EXACT, which focuses on developing exergames for active, healthy ageing and rehabilitation. She is also NTNU's PI in the EU-IMI project Mobilise-D, that aims to connect digital mobility assessment to clinical outcomes for regulatory and clinical endorsement, and was co-coordinating the EU project PreventIT, a personalised health and ICT project aimed at preventing functional decline at older age. She is the scientific leader of the faculty's core facility NeXt Move.
