"Quantitative Geriatrics"


The ComOn study (Cognitive and Motor Interactions in the Older Population) is a multicenter study with cooperation partners from Germany, Italy, Portugal, Austria and Brazil. ComOn investigates the relationships between cognitive functioning and mobility in elderly patients. There are 1000 geriatric patients measured both in-patient and in the home. Data collection is performed using sensor-based motion analysis, neuropsychological testing, imaging and clinical investigations. The goals of the ComOn study are to determine meaningful sensor-based parameters for the evaluation of gait, balance, and executive dysfunction. In addition, the study serves to evaluate treatment concepts in the (acute) clinical setting. The study also highlights everyday activity and the quality of specific everyday movements (such as getting up, walking, turning around, sitting, lying down).
