UN's Summit of the Future 2024

Purpose of the Summit

The researchers examined the use of footwear that incorporates force-sensing resistor sensors to classify lower limb disorders affecting the knee, hip, and ankle joints. The outcomes of the study reveal promising findings for future gait analysis and injury diagnosis, and the potential of force-sensing resistors (FSRs) and machine learning techniques for improving the assessment of lower limb injuries, and thereby furthering SDG3.
This study indicates that among people with higher levels of disability, engaging in physical activity is linked to more effective stress coping through enhanced self-efficacy. However, this effect was not observed among people with low levels of disability.

This Article supports SDG 3 by highlighting the importance of not just measuring life expectancy but also disability-free life expectancy as an indicator of population health, and showing that in Hong Kong, a word leader in life expectancy, there has been a trend of increasing disability burden, particularly in women. The authors discuss the public health implications of their findings.
