IMAGES: BIoMechanics And imaGing research for matErnal health and neonateS
Since 2017 we have been working on several ground-breaking and highly trans-disciplinary projects, in the area of pregnancy, childbirth, and neonatal care.
Using biomechanics, thermal imaging and other innovative applications, we are aiming to improve maternal, fetal and neonatal wellbeing and promote health-oriented (salutogenic) practices, while facilitating the economic sustainability of maternity and neonatal services and advancing the training and the education of the future and current health professionals.
