FaceRehab · Facial paralysis Rehabilitation at home

The Parc Sanitari Sant Joan de Déu participates in the FaceRehab project. It will develop an innovative product that will facilitate facial rehabilitation exercises for people affected by facial paralysis. In addition, a new program will be created, developed and controlled by therapists associated with a digital application.

The FaceReah intelligent solution will contribute to integrating the actions of formal caregivers (medical professionals) and informal caregivers (caregivers and family members) through a standard solution based on ICT (Information and Communication Technologies), expanding the rehabilitation programs conducted in hospital settings or the community setting (for example, home health facility or the patient's home).

FaceRehab impacted health by providing a new service model that can reduce the costs associated with the health care of people with facial paralysis while maintaining the relationship with the caregivers.

Participating entities: Pedro Nunes Institute, Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation Center - Fisioermesinde, Think Digital, Center National de Rééducation Fonctionnelle et de Réadaptation - Rehazenter, Parc Sanitari Sant Joan de Déu.
