We are thrilled about the terrific coverage by CNN today of Moving Through Glass, one of our SS+K Labs projects.

We have been working closely with Mark Morris Dance Group / Dance for PD® on the project for the last year. It is now making its way into the hands of researchers at Weil-Cornell Medical University and Stanford University, and will be available to students at Dance for PD’s flagship studio in Brooklyn.

SS+K Partners with Mark Morris Dance Group on Moving Through Glass

MovingThroughGlass_HomePage_Hero

Today Google announced grants for a select group of non-profits that are pursuing ways to use Google Glass and its unique abilities to further their causes. We’re proud to be a friend and partner to one of those select organizations, Mark Morris Dance Group.

Mark Morris Dance Group, along with Brooklyn Parkinson Group, runs Dance for PD™, an amazing award-winning program to enable people with Parkinson’s to harness the strategies of professional dancers—helping people regain a sense of control and independence as they go about their daily lives.

One challenge they face, however, is bringing learning from the classroom into the real world. That’s where Google Glass comes in.

Together with Mark Morris Dance Group and Google, SS+K will be exploring how we can further empower people with Parkinson’s disease by building Moving Through Glass, an application and program made specifically for Google Glass. Moving through Glass will create an intuitive, portable, dance-based toolkit for people living with Parkinson’s disease.

We are the beginning of an amazing technological revolution powered by exciting new connected devices. Products like Google Glass and Google Wear bring with them a whole new potential to empower people to live their lives in ways that were never before possible. We hope that by taking advantage of Google Glass sensors and heads-up display, we can help develop significant advancements for people with Parkinson’s. This is just the beginning.

Rob Shepardson Appointed By President Obama To The President’s Council On Fitness, Sports And Nutrition

031014_rob-shep-appointment_hero_v2

SS+K is proud to announce that one of our founding partners, Rob Shepardson, has been appointed to the President’s Council on Fitness, Sports and Nutrition, an honor that reflects his long 
involvement with public health in America, as well as his athletic
 accomplishments.

Rob, an adjunct professor at Columbia’s Mailman School of Public
 Health, was instrumental in the launch of LIVESTRONG, the foundation 
that inspired millions of people to take a stronger stance against 
cancer. Rob also led the SS+K team that helped create and launch
 “Let’s Move,” First Lady Michelle Obama’s program to counter the 
obesity epidemic plaguing young Americans, which just celebrated its 4th anniversary.

An avid sportsman, Rob’s athletic glory days did not end when he hung up his cleats as the quarterback of his college football team. To this day, Rob fuels his passion for fitness by running and this past Monday, completed the 2014 Boston Marathon in 3:36!

Rob lives what he loves, as a business strategist, an athlete and as an advocate for public health. We look forward to what he accomplishes along with his fellow Council Members. We’ll book a conference room for co-chairs, Drew Brees and Dominique Dawes any day.
