Gruppo FOS Lithuania in partnership with KTU and LSMU is creating the multimodal system for personalized management of the post stroke rehabilitation.
Post stroke recovery is long-term and very expensive process, therefore optimization of management, enabling care givers to use modern smart tools will increase the recovery results and finally reduce human resources and costs of care. Integrated systems will be much cheaper than separate devices of clinical use and ensures the shifting the health care from hospital to rehabilitation and home care.
New product: integrated, modular, multimodal system for personalized post-stroke recovery management. The product will include the means for neuromotor function, cardiovascular function and brain structure monitoring. Neuromotor function will be evaluated by simultaneous tracking of movement and brain activity during repetitive exercises and recovery gamification. The system will be able to track dynamic activity (electrical and hemodynamic) of brain by using electroencephalography (EEG) and functional near infrared spectroscopy (fNIRS) and dynamic activity of muscles by using electromyography (EMG). Cardiovascular function (pulse rate and pulse transition time variability, detecting of arrhythmias) will be monitored by a smart bracelet. Structural changes of the brain will be monitored by multichannel bioimpedance measurements. Objective measurements will be combined with subjective data for decision support-based post-stroke recovery management.
New service: New developed product enables a new service – personalization of recovery technologies. Hardware and software means of recovery will be adapted in accordance with status and personal needs of patient. Motor, sensory, cognitive and speech skills will be taken in account. Sensors, their parameters, scheduling, data processing risk warning thresholds and other parameters of the system will be adapted after establishing a personal recovery protocol based on comprehensive clinical investigation. Patient and care givers will be enabled by appropriate interfaces to the service. Recovery procedures – exercises, kinesiotherapy will be supported by the developed service and products.
