How can technology be used for our health? Find it out at the next Kraks on June 6th! Here you will discover how technology can be used to counteract depression, how technology is used for rehabilitation and how to measure your cholesterol by means of a chip.

Researcher Jasmien Vervaeke - affiliated to the research group imec-mict-UGent from our department and to the department of experimental clinical and health psychology - explains how computer training can help prevent relapse of depression.

During this event you can also test demos: the wE-MOVE engine game with the VR glasses Oculus for example. This game was developed in the context of the imec ICON project We-move, where imec-mict-UGent researchers were involved.
