There are two main points of focus in the field of sport and therapy. On the one hand, the Innovation Centre for Assistive Technologies (IAT) is working on the further development of training and sports equipment. On the other hand, it is gaining valuable insights in the fields of diagnostics and therapy technologies.

There is also development potential for sports equipment that can be used as a therapeutic tool to achieve rehabilitation goals such as improving strength, endurance, flexibility, and movement coordination.
