Abstract

Persons who suffered a stroke are trained to improve adequate control over their movements with the objective to optimize their daily-life functional performance. Critical is how good they are able to interact physically with the dailylife environment, including handling objects, controlling body balance during functional ambulation and while interacting with the environment.Continuous daily-life monitoring of the functional activities of stroke survivors, in their physical interaction with the environment, is essential for optimal guidance of rehabilitation therapy by medical professionals and coaching of the patient. Such information cannot be obtained with present monitoring systems. It is therefore the objective of the INTERACTION project to develop and validate an unobtrusive and modular system that enables monitoring the quality of daily-life activities and physical interactions with the environment. The INTERACTION project is partially funded by the European Commission under the 7th Framework Programme (FP7-ICT-2011-7-287351)
