The scope of Habilis is to launch and deploy an innovative model of rehabilitation.
Habilis Europe’s concept is based on a flexible, general purpose and low cost platform suitable for implementing an expandable set of telerehabilitation services across the whole EU, with significant potential to enhance the deployment of e-health services and the optimization of healthcare resources.
Habilis Europe is a new company established in the framework of the European project CLEAR supported by the ICT-PSP Programme. It is conceived as a network of SMEs, public and private bodies with the mission, to “maintain, as long as possible, elderly people abilities to reach a better quality of life” well recalled by the name Habilis.
What is a Tele-Rehab service?
It is a service which allows patients to extend the rehabilitation treatment at home (or at the point of their need) under the supervision of a rehab team guaranteeing efficacy, security, privacy and privacy and ethical methods.
The Habilis Platform will deliver the therapy to people who cannot travel to a clinic because of their disability or to avoid issues occurring for travelling reasons. Telerehabilitation also allows experts in rehabilitation to engage in a clinical consultation at a distance.
With Habilis patients with physical, neurological or cognitive impairments can rehabilitate at home or near their home, in tele-rehab points, spread on the territory and linked to the Clinical Centres.
Why the project “CLEAR”?
- To demonstrate the technical, clinical, organizational and legal feasibility of extending part of the rehabilitation treatment at the point of patients’ need using a “low cost software platform” tailored to elderly people affected by cognitive, musculoskeletal and pneumonic diseases;
- To provide sustainable cost models in order to allow the treatment of people with disabilities more efficiently, accounting the localization at each clinical site;
- To implement home therapies, designed by clinicians, based on a set of rehabilitation exercises.
