Abstract

A tele-rehabilitation system has been designed for general use. The service can extend the rehabilitation treatment of patients affected by neurological diseases such as stroke or multiple sclerosis to their home, while under the control, supervision and responsibility of a hospital. Part of the initial work involved identifying the functional blocks of a tele-rehabilitation service. There are three parties involved in the tele-rehabilitation service: the health provider (the central unit of the system), the health operator (the medical unit of the system, generally a therapist) and the home platform (a central console with a high level of modularity). Tele-rehabilitative services that are easy to use could radically change the routine care and rehabilitation process.
