Dr Karl Friedl
As a keynote speaker at ICSPP2017, I will talk about the military applications of wearable physiological monitoring. There has been great enthusiasm for the bright shiny objects of technology that are currently available on the commercial market but none of these toys have been focused on providing important and actionable information to soldiers and small unit leaders. Military leaders are equally enamoured with technology but military physiologists must develop the useful options for their attention.
The ICSPP is a great opportunity to exchange ideas and hatch collaborations in a gathering of military performance research stars. DST Group, the hosts of ICSPP2017, have been tightly focused on problem-solving research for the Australian Defence Force and, provide a broad and relevant foundation in military performance physiology for this meeting, possibly unmatched by any other country or single laboratory at present. I am very grateful to our Finnish friends who had the vision and tenacity to start this meeting concept. There is no other forum for international military exchanges in biomedical performance research. For many of us, this is now becoming our key international science meeting.
Whilst visiting Australia I’m quite excited about any opportunities for Australian wildlife encounters and also fancy an exploration of bush tucker. There are lessons to be learned from some of the traditional foods of the indigenous community including the superfoods composed of desert berries and other plants that have developed antioxidant defences for survival in extreme environments.
