Project Description

RehabMe (Patent n. MI2012A001831)

RehabMe is a highly flexible rehabilitation system based on RFID technologies. The system manage the setup of a sequence of tasks and the monitoring of its performing by means of a RFID reader worn by the patient and a set of RFID tags identifying daily life objects to be found and grasped by the user.

Customised audio messages are spoken to guide the user in the rehabilitation exercise while simple data on performance such as reaction times and performance features are saved for off line investigation. A simple setup allows the therapist to design ad hoc rehabilitation paths for each subject even in home environment.
