An increasing number of people need medical (home) care and rehabilitation after suffering from stroke. Today therapy is usually offered by therapists in healthcare centers or private practices, typically on a one-on-one basis. This situation is very expensive for society, and time consuming, difficult and expensive for the patients. To improve the situation we want to develop therapy applications based on innovative but cost-effective sensor technologies enabling patients to do part of their rehabilitation training at home without permanent supervision of a therapist.
