RGS@home - The RGS@home project: Scaling ICT based neurorehabilitation to personalized 24/7 home care
The Parc Sanitari Sant Joan de Déu participates in the RGS@home project, in which the domestic version of the Rehabilitation Gaming System (RGS) will be developed, a system that provides individualized training based on virtual reality for the training of patients who have suffered a stroke, helping them to optimally regain function and well-being. It is intended for patients who need to train their arm, hand, body function and cognitive skills.
RGS is a system of rehabilitation games in which patients who have suffered a stroke play virtual games as a neurorehabilitation technique to aid their motor and cognitive recovery.
The core of the technology, the RGS, is based on a patented software package that has been developed in collaboration with scientists, clinicians and, above all, patients who have suffered a stroke. With a strong science base, RGS combines brain theory, Artificial Intelligence (AI), cloud computing, and virtual reality. The RGS has been validated in a hospital setting (RGS@clinic), proving superior to other methods and products while reducing costs in therapy centers and hospitals.
In the RGS@home project, specifically, this ICT solution will be developed for neurorehabilitation aimed at motor and cognitive recovery after stroke in the patient's home. The fact that these patients can perform this rehabilitation with the RGS system at home (RGS@home) will reduce the cost of therapy while increasing the quality of life of patients. It will be very pleasant for the patient and will allow a wider use.
