TigerPlace: where care and aging with dignity go hand-in-hand with technology

Help! I’ve fallen and I can’t get up!” It’s a catchphrase that has been the stuff of jokes and parodies since a 1980s stiffly dramatized commercial for a medical alarm company, but fall risk assessment and prevention for the elderly is serious business. Researchers at the University of Missouri have been collaborating for the past […]

Fostering everyday engineering education

Three Mizzou Engineering faculty members are being featured in a campuswide campaign to increase public understanding and support for science.
