This presentation will provide an overview of the newly-funded Rehabilitation Engineering Research Center (RERC) on ICT Access for Mobile Rehabilitation. The RERC’s mission is to advance the field of mRehab by developing and demonstrating the value of innovative, accessible ICT applications for rehabilitation in the home and community. The centerpiece of this work is the application of “Big Data” to change the paradigm of outpatient rehabilitation. We believe we can substantially improve effectiveness of conventional home-based rehabilitation with a combination of innovative digital health technologies—app-based therapy management, sensor-based activity tracking and gamified exercise, and an advanced analytic toolset for monitoring, managing and optimizing mRehab delivery.
- Describe factors that compel development of effective mRehab strategies
- Understand how “big data” analytic strategies may be applied to improve effectiveness and efficiency of outpatient rehabilitation
- Describe at least 2 development activities underway within the mRehab RERC and their potential impact on clinical practice
