In the Active Aging lab, we are looking at the important concept of ageing well. The proportion of older people in our society continues to increase, so it becomes all the more important to improve people's ability to maintain their health, participate in social life and improve their quality of life as they age.
Welcome to the Active Ageing Lab. On this page you will find information about our team, current projects and latest news.
We investigate active ageing in two ways: (1) exploring how to move and how this can be reported, (2) maintaining and increasing mobility, which includes interventions and resulting changes. The lab's target groups range from young adults to people in old age, with a spectrum from healthy people to people in care. In cooperation with international project partners, many exciting projects are developed, which are scientifically relevant and find their application in reality.
We are open to applications for research internships as well as bachelor and master theses. Please contact our colleague Ellen Bentlage and describe in which of the following projects you would like to become active:
