This workshop is motivated by the need for multidisciplinary collaborative research with the objective to design, construct and evaluate innovative, engaging, computer-aided and game-assisted rehabilitation and telemonitoring platforms. The workshop describes the collaborative research that resulted in cost-effective, modular, and portable devices equipped with smart monitoring and assistive technology, to support exercise/therapy regimes designed to promote recovery of voluntary movements of the upper extremity. The approach combines high-effectiveness exercises/activities with computer games, making rehabilitation interactive, engaging, and enjoyable. We will share our experience in connecting researchers with different expertise to develop new platforms to:

  1. increase accessibility to affordable systems that can transition in-patient rehab services to function at home, in community exercise facilities, and in remote communities;
  2. provide automated monitoring tools that inform therapists when and how their clients are performing, whether they are experiencing any difficulty, and how they are progressing in their exercise program.
