Presenter

Paolo Bonato, PhD 
Associate Professor of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation
Harvard Medical School

Session Description

This lecture will provide a critical review of how wearable and mhealth technologies are transforming the field of rehabilitation. We will show how data collected using these technologies in the clinic and in the home and community settings can be utilized to derive estimates of clinical outcomes that would otherwise require the administration of lengthy assessment procedures. Then, we will discuss how these estimates could be utilized to design and implement patient-specific rehabilitation interventions. Finally, we will discuss how we envision that the field of rehabilitation will leverage data collected using wearable and mhealth technologies to deliver better clinical outcomes.
