Proposed start date:

Information and communication technologies have deeply contributed in the improvement of the society, in a variety of aspects: economy, leisure, culture, etc. One relevant field for the application of these technologies and systems is tele-medicine.

In this scenario, TELEREHAB is a research project with Robotiker foundation (currently Tecnalia) to design and develop a complete telematic system to allow remote rehabilitation (at home) of patients suffering from an ictus or traumatic amputation. All this is achieved by means of videoconference, patient-specialist mailing, therapeutic games, etc.
