Marylinn J. Metzke | Human Performance Innovation: Aging Independently
What is HPI?
The Human Performance Initiative is a special focus area of the ZIP Launchpad that aims to support ideas that will innovate the health of aging adults and the performance of athletes.
Why You Should Apply
Americans are becoming increasingly more active, spending more money to improve their health and fitness than ever before.
How Can You Innovate?
The older generation suffers from a lack of human interaction which in turn leads to mental deterioration. Can you provide a service that connects the elderly?
Is there a device that can help older people maintain muscle control in their hands/fingers?
There are 150,000 ACL tears each year, can you create something to prevent them?
Why Aging Independently?
of seniors want to age in place
of the population will be 65+ in 2050
of all spending comes from seniors
