Rehabilitation is how to restore the frail human being, as a whole, when one or more functions are lost and its own precious physical and relational balance is in danger.
High-level rehabilitation is based on three actions: delivering treatments able to address high complexity in advanced rehab centers; providing continuity of assistance when the patient goes back home; measuring the rehab treatment outcome to evaluate effectiveness and to setup personalized rehab treatments.
The elective companion for this path is advanced technology, empowering in an unprecedented way the caregiver’s human capability to understand the needs and to deliver the assistance to the patient, providing the data to dynamically measure the rehabilitation outcome. In building the right ecosystem for this virtuous process, a strict partnership is needed between healthcare providers, research communities and innovative, open-minded tech companies ready to accept the challenge of a potentially disruptive care in a sustainable way.
