RecoveryFun will develop, test among end-users, and commercialize a new solution for a personalized home rehabilitation composed by:
A. A set of exergames for people with rehabilitation needs based on VR technology.
B. A digital health record management platform for clinicians, to manage patients’ profiles, personalized rehabilitation plans and remote visit via teleconferencing.
C. An IoT connected ecosystem, integrating innovative medical hardware for monitoring real-time biosignals of the user.
D. A mobile App for non-professional caregivers to provide motivation to the patients via meaningful (in-game) interactions and feedback with their significant others.
E. A set of smart and intelligent services to personalize the rehabilitation experience and improve clinicians monitoring activity.
RecoveryFun ambition is to enhance rehabilitation opportunities for people with chronic health conditions that today are receiving sub-optimal care. Our proposal goes beyond a disease-centered approach, and addresses also frailty prevention. Indeed, increasing the level of activities of older adults is the most effective strategy for improving the health profile of the communities, thanks to the reduction of frailty states in the older adults’ population.
Expected Results and Impact:
Leverage the telehealth paradigm and increase the possibility for seniors to perform remotely supervised home-rehabilitation. By doing so, RecoveryFun will improve quality of life (QoL) for primary (senior using the system) and secondary end users (non-professional caregivers), improve quality, efficiency, and effectiveness of care work (secondary users). Ultimately our solution will provide new ways to deliver cost-effective care (a relevant impact for the managers of the care organization, tertiary end users of the project)
