Individualized multicomponent exergame training that uses gait analysis to formulate individualized interventions

VITAAL is a project that is funded by the European Commission as part of the Active and Assisted Living Program. We are developing a comprehensive system for geriatric rehabilitation, that 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

Motivation

In the current health market there is a strong need for a remotely controlled, digital, home-based training. Tele-rehabilitation approaches and digital/technological solutions are a promising option to overcome barriers of accessibility, discontinuity, and lack of resources (money, time, staff). A system (VITAAL) should be developed providing integrated hardware and software solutions for geriatric rehabilitation

Benefit

VITAAL uses personalized training programs based on physical interactive games and interventions for mobility impairment, urinary incontinence and cognitive impairment, providing an effective and evidence-based training intervention tackling the most important syndroms of frailty ("Geriatric Giants") in the old age.

Innovation

VITAAL effectively combines an easy to use system to conduct personalized training interventions and a gait assessment system with the use of web-based technologies to optimize the interventions and provide relevant data in the rehabilitation process, that can be used for inpatient / outpatient settings and at home.
