What is VITAAL?
VITAAL is an innovative, comprehensive system for geriatric rehabilitation. It uses wearable sensors and a web-based interface to provide evidence-based motor-cognitive training with high usability and quick/barrier-free application in the clinic and at home. An assessment system is included in the setup for the analysis of the functional status using a simple to use gait assessment tool. A digital web-based rehabilitation cockpit helps as a centralized management in the whole process.
