Project Description

RFLEX Radio Frequency based flexible care

Usability and ergonomics are key concept in the design of effective wearable solutions for health. RFLEX is an application founded by the EU SmartEEs project, aiming at enhancing the wearability and the user experience of RehabMe, our platform for the upper limb rehabilitation, through the use of flexible electronics. Through the collaboration with international partners in Spain (Eurecat) and France (Blumorpho), RFLEX equipped RehabMe with the latest advances in innovative materials for flexible and wearable electronics to create a device that the patients can easily wear and handle in their rehabilitation sessions.
