ArmCoach 4 Stroke IMU Sensor Technology for Rehabilitation at Home

About the Arm Coach for Stroke Project (AC4S Project)

Welcome to the forefront of innovation in stroke rehabilitation! The Arm Coach for Stroke project at Erasmus Medical Centre is a pioneering initiative designed to transform the landscape of post-stroke recovery. Led by a team of dedicated professionals, our project leverages cutting-edge technology to provide personalized and effective arm rehabilitation for stroke survivors.

Our Mission

Empowering Recovery through Technology: We are on a mission to empower stroke survivors on their journey to recovery by harnessing the potential of advanced technologies. The Arm Coach for Stroke is a testament to our commitment to improving the lives of those affected by stroke.

What is the Arm Coach?

The Arm Coach is a state-of-the-art rehabilitation system developed at Erasmus Medical Centre together with a number of key partners. It integrates Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU) sensors to precisely track and analyze arm movements. This technology allows for tailored rehabilitation exercises that adapt to the individual needs and progress of each user.

Key Features

  • Personalized Rehabilitation Plans: Our system generates customized rehabilitation plans based on the specific needs and capabilities of each user.
  • Real-time Feedback: Users receive instant feedback on their movements, fostering a more interactive and engaging rehabilitation experience.
  • Remote Monitoring: Healthcare professionals can remotely monitor the progress of patients, allowing for timely adjustments to rehabilitation plans.
  • Data-Driven Insights: The Arm Coach collects and analyzes data to provide valuable insights into the rehabilitation process, enhancing the overall effectiveness of the program.

How It Works

  1. Assessment: Each user undergoes a thorough assessment to determine their current abilities and limitations.
  2. Personalized Plan: Based on the assessment, a personalized rehabilitation plan is generated, taking into account the unique needs of the individual.
  3. Training Sessions: Users engage in interactive training sessions guided by the Arm Coach, with real-time feedback to ensure correct movements.
  4. Progress Monitoring: The system continuously monitors progress, allowing for adjustments to the rehabilitation plan as needed.

Collaborative Approach

The Arm Coach for Stroke project is a collaborative effort involving experts in neurorehabilitation, technology, and patient care. By bringing together a diverse team, we aim to create a comprehensive solution that addresses the multifaceted challenges of stroke recovery.
