The main purpose of FaceRehab is to develop a solution for supporting facial rehabilitation exercises at home using technology as a means to improve the digital transformation of the health and care for people affected with Facial Paralysis.
This project will contribute to integrating actions of formal and informal carers using a common ICT-based solution by extending rehabilitation programs performed in hospital or clinical environments to the community setting. In particular, FaceRehab will address the need for technological solutions that monitor the realization of facial paralysis rehabilitation exercises at home. A need is felt by patients, physical therapists, occupational therapists, and speech therapists while undergoing a rehabilitation program.
