ZithaAktiv, Centre de la mémoire et de la mobilité, est soucieux de vous proposer en tant que participant un programme de haute qualité

recherche

C’est la raison pour laquelle ZithaAktiv vérifie l’utilité de ses programmes d’entraînement au moyen d’études scientifiques continues. Les informations récoltées alimentent la réélaboration des programmes, et profitent ainsi continuellement aux participants.

En sus, l’équipe de recherche de ZithaAktiv travaille sur d’autres domaines, tous liés au troisième âge. ZithaAktiv s’illustre régulièrement par des présentations lors de congrès médicaux internationaux ayant trait à la gérontologie et à la gériatrie.

ZithaAktiv est, par ailleurs, membre à part entière du consortium de recherche international BIOMATHICS. Le consortium s’est fixé comme objectif d’examiner le bien-être et la qualité de vie des seniors sur une base continue et à un niveau international. Le consortium a été fondé sur l’initiative du service de gériatrie du centre hospitalier universitaire d’Angers (France) et est constitué de membres des Etats suivants : France, Suisse, Belgique, Grande-Bretagne, Espagne, USA, Canada, Israël et Australie. Pour finir, ZithaAktiv échange en permanence avec plusieurs partenaires de recherche nationaux et internationaux.
