SangHyun Lee, Associate Professor and John L. TIshman Faculty Scholar, will be leading one of six research teams awarded funding by the U-M Exercise and Sport Science Initiative (ESSI).  The teams will share in $800,000 of funding as they explore ways to “optimize physical performance and health for people of all ages and abilities.”

Professor Lee’s research is entitled: Wearable-based physiological sensing to promote the elderly’s mobility, and will be conducted with Philippa Clarke, Professor from the School of Public Health and Institute for Social Research.  The goal of their project is to develop and test a wearable-based physiological and collective sensing framework that detects the elderly’s distress in the built environment without substantially interfering with their daily life.
