REWIRE is a European Project funded by the Seventh Framework Program, that develops, integrates and field tests an innovative virtual reality based rehabilitation platform system based on a multi-level rehabilitation platform.
REWIRE platform is constituted of three hierarchical components:
- Patient station (PS) is deployed at patient's home. It guides the patient through the rehabilitation program by a set of mini-games shown on the TV screen. Patient's motion is tracked by video based systems (hands-free paradigm) and the level of challenge is tuned to patient's current lifestyle measured with miniaturized with adequate dressed devices.
- Hospital station (HS) is used at hospitals by the clinical staff to define the rehabilitation treatment by scheduling a program of exercises personalized to each patient, and monitoring the patient's progression through the analysis of the motion data sent back by the PS. HS supports also a patients' community to further support at home.
- Networking station (NS) collects valuable data related to rehabilitation while the patient is both in the hospital and at home.
