The TEREHA project aims to provide telerehabilitation services with a holistic approach through new technologies for individuals with acquired brain injury and their relatives or caregivers. The objective of the project is to improve the clinical efficacy of current interventions, to reduce the associated costs, and to cover those areas without neurorehabilitation services. The project will provide robust and user-friendly low-cost systems that will allow therapists to bring the rehabilitation closer to the clients’ home setting while maintaining the quality of the services.
The project will focus on the rehabilitation of motor and cognitive impairments, and on the intervention on psychological issues. Different virtual reality-based and technological solutions will be implemented to address these consequences. The experimental systems will allow to plan a customized intervention for each client, considering subjects and their environment as a whole. The project will examine the clinical efficacy and effectiveness of all the systems on acquired brain injury population.
