Bringing RGS care home

 ABOUT THE PROJECT

Stroke is the third cause of death and the main cause of adult disability worldwide, and market drivers exist for new ICT based treatment solutions. IBEC / Eodyne Systems has developed the Rehabilitation Gaming System (RGS), a science-based ICT solution for neurorehabilitation combining brain theory, AI, cloud computing and virtual reality and targeting motor and cognitive recovery after stroke. RGS provides a continuum of evaluations and therapeutic solutions that accompany the patient from the clinic to the therapy center. RGS has been clinically validated showing its superiority over other products while reducing cost also through its use of standard off-the-shelf hardware and a Software as a Service model (SaaS). Commercial evaluations have shown that RGS acts as a workforce multiplier while delivering a high quality of care at clinical centers (RGS@clinic).

However, in order to achieve significant benefits in the patients’ Quality of Life, it is essential that RGS becomes an at home solution providing 24/7 monitoring and care. For this reason, the project will investigate adoption models, taking into account the diversity of European clinical guidelines and reimbursement models. The consortium will realize the RGS@home system by taking the following actions:

  • Extending an existing commercial product used in neurorehabilitation centers

  • Customizing it for the home scenario for patients and caregivers

  • Augmenting it with a wearable monitoring and feedback device.

All data exchange will be realized over the cloud and interfaced to analytics engines providing treatment customization, high-end analytics, and prognosis services to clinicians and reimbursers, and reporting and intervention tools for clinicians and healthcare providers.

RGS USERS SAY

“This kind of treatment is very interesting because we can treat patients in the chronic phase that don’t receive any treatment but that can still improve their upper limbs deficits”

Ampar Cuxart, Chief Rehabilitation Department, Vall D'Hebron, Barcelona

“RGS used in Occupational Therapy treatments provides advances in our discipline and brings new opportunities to our users of Vall d’Hebron University Hospital.”

Georgina Martínez Fernández , Occupational Therapist, Vall D'Hebron, Barcelona

“The rehabilitation programme was really motivating, because I learnt new things. I was able to greatly improve the movement of my arms, in a very subconscious, natural way.”

Gloria Bou Ferreiro, Stroke Patient
