A Center for Innovation
We envision a world where everyone can get the highest quality health care anytime.
With a mission to modernize health care and human performance through technology to make it more personal, affordable and accessible for all, the USC Center for Body Computing was founded in 2006 as one of the nation’s first academically-based digital health research and innovation centers. The USC CBC functions as a transdisciplinary brain trust and innovation center within the Institute for Creative Technology. By leveraging digital technology to provide personal and continuous care, the USC CBC conducts clinical research to establish safety and efficacy of these emerging technologies.
