Cognitive Rehabilitation of Apraxia and Action Disorganisation Syndrome

The goal of the CogWatch project is to enhance rehabilitation of patients who suffer from apraxia or action disorganisation syndrome (AADS) after stroke by providing tools that are part of a personalized home rehabilitation system. Many stroke patients suffer cognitive deficits that impair their abilities to carry out activities of daily living.

At the present, most common IT systems for stroke rehabilitation focus on physiological symptoms, such as muscle weakness, but are not appropriate for treating cognitive impairments. Moreover, they are typically based on robot and/or virtual reality platforms that are expensive and are not always suitable for use at home. Cogwatch will develop intelligent tools and objects, portable and wearable devices, and ambient systems for a new Personal Healthcare System (PHS), which will provide personalized cognitive rehabilitation for stroke patients within their home environment.
