Patient at home

This is so far the largest welfare technology project in Denmark. The work package responsible for rehabilitative training is hosted at the Institute of Sports Science and Clinical Biomechanics. We will develop technology and services to assist in diagnosing, monitoring and training people with cervical radiculopathy (neck and arm pain), paresis/paralysis of arm or legs, and people with increased risk of falling. The technology and rehabilitative services will be tested in case studies and series, diagnostic studies, and in larger clinical trials to determine efficacy and cost-effectiveness. This work is carried out in true multidisciplinary settings of physiotherapists, chiropractors, exercise physiologists, engineers, health economists, anthropologists and private companies producing software platforms, video platforms, and motion sensors.
