« Consequences of the population ageing on the insurances loss, in particular for motor insurance; impacts on prevention »
Director of the program: Prof. Marie Kratz
The Research Program « Consequences of the population ageing on the insurances loss and impacts on the automobile prevention » aims at studying the issue of longevity and its impact on health and motor insurance. Pathologies such as slowly decreasing visual acuity, or, more severe, as a start of Alzheimer disease, are likely to reduce vigilance and safe driving. Taking medecines may have similar effects and trigger drowsiness or reducing vigilance, knowing that, statistically, medecines taking increases with age. One focus of the study will be on measuring those 'ageing' effects on driving, understanding their consequences and find solutions to decrease risk and improve prevention.
