Senior Health Data Sensors Now Available to Private Homes

When a Mizzou Engineer began using sensors to track senior health data in assisted living facilities more than a decade ago, the goal was to someday take that technology into private homes. COVID-19 is forcing that someday to be today.

Student Wins Best Paper Finalist Award at IEEE Conference

Wenlong Wu won a Best Paper Finalist Award at an IEEE conference. A Mizzou Engineering student’s paper was selected as a finalist for best paper at a top engineering conference last week. What makes it more impressive is that Wenlong Waylon Wu forgot to specify that the paper should have been entered in the student category. Instead, it received high honors among professional-level faculty members and researchers from around the world.

Mizzou’s Skubic helping shape rehab recovery

According to the American Stroke Association, stroke is the leading cause of disability in the United States. For patients recovering from a stroke, paralysis or loss of muscle movement on one side of the body can make daily chores and tasks more difficult to complete. Now, researchers at the University of Missouri have received more than $3 million from the National Institutes of Health to better assess and monitor patients recovering from stroke.

NSF REU puts students at computing’s cutting edge

Mizzou Engineering is proud of its tradition of giving undergraduates real-world lab experience through undergraduate research. In fact, Mizzou is listed as one of the top 10 universities in the country for undergraduate research. And, each summer, MU and Mizzou Engineering extend that tradition to students from across the country through the National Science Foundation Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) program.
