Recent studies suggest that the quality of recovery after a stroke can be increased by early and more intensive rehabilitation. Portable unobtrusive devices are promising candidates for the realization of stroke-rehabilitation systems that complement care in the post-acute rehabilitation phase, both in the clinic and at home. The proposed system allows patients to increase the amount of motor exercise they can perform in autonomy, providing them with a real-time feedback based on wearable… CONTINUE READING
