Webinar: Do CHANGE, European Smart Assistive Technology Project Disrupting and Empowering Individuals

Author: Sander van Berlo

Published by: Community Resourcing

Date of Publication: October 7th, 2015


Dr. Eleanor Horton chairs this webinar presented by Sander van Berlo, who informs us of his project Do CHANGE. The primary goal of the Do CHANGE (Cardiac Health Advanced New Generation Ecosystem) project is to develop a health ecosystem for integrated disease management for hypertensive and cardiac patients. This ground breaking system – which will be adaptable for other health and social issues – will give people access to a set of personalised health services that directly respond to a range of measurements and situations. It integrates the latest behaviour change techniques with inputs from new portable tools that scan food and fluid intake, monitor behaviours and measure clinical parameters in normal living situations.

Smart rehabilitation for the 21st century: The Tampa Smart Home for veterans with traumatic brain injury

 

Author/s: Jan Jasiewicz, PhD; William Kearns, PhD;  Jeffrey Craighead, PhD; James L. Fozard, PhD; Steven Scott, DO; Jay McCarthy Jr, PT, MS

Published By: JRRD, Volume 48, Number 8

Published On: 2011

 

In this editorial, JRRD report on the development of a smart-home–based cognitive prosthetic that will deliver 24/7 rehabilitation at the James A.Haley Veterans’ Hospital Polytrauma Transitional Rehabilitation Program (PTRP) facility in Tampa, Florida. The Tampa Smart Home was designed to address two weaknesses identified by PTRP clinicians in the rehabilitation process for patients with traumatic brain injury (TBI): (1) patient safety and (2) inadequate timing and repetition of prompts used to overcome TBI related cognitive and memory deficits.

School-based Telerehabilitation In Occupational Therapy: Using Telerehabilitation Technologies to Promote Improvements in Student Performance

Author: Melanie Joy Criss

Published by: International Journal of Telerehabilitation

Year of Publication: 2013

This article discusses the use of telerehabilitation technologies in occupational therapy for schoolbased practice. Telerehabilitation, for the purpose of this program, included the implementation of occupational therapy services via twoway interactive videoconferencing technology. The subjects included in this pilot program were children, ages 6 to 11 years, who attended an online charter school and had difficulties in the areas of fine motor and/or visual motor skills which impacted success with handwriting. Each participant completed a virtual evaluation and six 30 minute intervention sessions. The Print Tool™ Assessment was used to determine progress pre and post program. A learning coach/student satisfaction survey was given at the end of the program to determine participant satisfaction. Outcomes revealed improvements in handwriting performance for most students who participated in the program and high satisfaction rates reported by all participants.Category: Connected Health Rural & Remote Service Delivery

Video capture virtual reality as a flexible and effective rehabilitation tool

Authors: Patrice L Weiss, Debbie Rand, Noomi Katz and Rachel Kizony

Published by: Journal of NeuroEngineering and Rehabilitation

Published: 2004

Video capture virtual reality (VR) uses a video camera and software to track movement in a single plane without the need to place markers on specific bodily locations. The user's image is thereby embedded within a simulated environment such that it is possible to interact with animated graphics in a completely natural manner. Although this technology first became available more than 25 years ago, it is only within the past five years that it has been applied in rehabilitation. The objective of this article is to describe the way this technology works, to review its assets relative to other VR platforms, and to provide an overview of some of the major studies that have evaluated the use of video capture technologies for rehabilitation.
