The Ludwig Boltzmann Institute (LBI) for Digital Health and Prevention investigates the use of technology to sustain a lifelong healthy lifestyle.
Cardiovascular diseases continue to be the most common cause of death worldwide and also in Austria. An important focus of our institute is cardiovascular health and physical activity. It is known that regular endurance and strength training in everyday life counteract cardiovascular diseases in the long term. Our interdisciplinary team is committed to an open culture of innovation and actively promotes dialogue between patients, health practitioners, researchers, and the general public. Using a wide variety of research methods, we foster our understanding of how digital technologies can support people to sustain a lifelong healthy lifestyle – both in prevention and rehabilitation.
