A smart Textile Platform For Neuromuscular Rehabilitation in the Home Environment
The amount of training is a critical factor for achieving desired outcomes in rehabilitation. Patient compliance to rehabilitation is generally low, particularly in long-term home-based training.

NeuRehab@Home is a biofeedback concept focusing on recording, analysing and presenting myoelectric (EMG) signals to make the individual aware of their muscle activity. The game-changer is a textile-electrode system which makes specific training regimes easy-to-use, comfortable during long-term use and at low costs. The concept has been successfully applied in a pilot study addressing Phantom Limb Pain where muscle activity from the amputated limb is used to control, e.g. computer games.
Home-based training protocols can improve the quality of life for patients and substantially reduce healthcare and service costs. Join us to explore the potential of other self-administered treatments. We seek to apply the NeuRehab@Home platform to other areas of healthcare.
