Rehabilitation

To find a solution for the rehabilitation of patients following an injury, surgery, disease, or illness, or because their functioning has declined with age with a medical device that can be linked remotely to trained rehabilitation professionals and uses AI-based solutions.

Background & Gap

Globally, about 2.4 billion people are currently living with a health condition that may benefit from rehabilitation.


There is a big gap between the huge and growing population in the developing world and the availability of trained rehabilitation professionals. In addition to that, access to services in developed countries can be a huge barrier, mainly due to logistical issues.


Aim

To find a solution for the rehabilitation of patients following an injury, surgery, disease, or illness, or because their functioning has declined with age with a medical device that can be linked remotely to trained rehabilitation professionals and uses AI-based solutions.


In addition, it helps to prevent, reduce or manage complications associated with health conditions, such as in the context of spinal cord injury, stroke, or fractures.


Sample Solutions

An electromechanical robotic device that can be linked through sensors and computer software transmitting real-time data to a professional.


The device should have the capability to store and analyze data using Artificial Intelligence to research and improve the outcomes and offer ease in future development.
