The Swiss Payment Monitor conducted by the ZHAW and the University of St. Gallen also shows that debit cards are continuing to extend their lead as the most popular means of payment

Cruciate ligament injuries are among the most common injuries in sport. Researchers from the ZHAW and ZHdK have developed the ExerUp game in collaboration with a practice partner to help people return to their previous level of activity in addition to physiotherapy

Transport - Nov 3, 2023

The range of transport services for people with disabilities varies greatly in Switzerland and is difficult to access due to complex organization and high prices.

Young Swiss use their smartphones for almost three years before replacing them. That's almost a year longer than in 2016, according to the latest JAMESfocus report from ZHAW and Swisscom. While technical features and price remain central for young people when buying a cell phone, sustainability criteria are also gaining in importance

Health - Oct 19, 2023

In order to drive forward the digitization of healthcare in Switzerland, the benefits and opportunities for all stakeholders must be demonstrated even better. This is made clear by the current Digital Health Report from the ZHAW. Society's fears and how to overcome them also play a role
