The Rehabilitation Gaming System, RGS is an integrated treatment solution for stroke rehabilitation supported by TicSalut Foundation in Catalonia. In particular RGS is currently used in a post stroke rehabilitation program as part of a collaborative research effort between SPECS that developed RGS, and the Hospital of Vall d'Hebron, one of the leading hospitals in Spain and also with Hospital de la Esperança, both in Barcelona.
RGS System as one of the most innovative ICT solutions in the clinic and at home
A recent visit by representatives of Swedish rehabilitation groups of the CASA
project (www.casa-europe.eu) to different institutions supported by TicSalut in
Barcelona (http://www.ticsalut.cat), has generated a promotional video which
supports the use of ICT solutions to modernize the organization of homecare for
the elderly and chronically ill patients. The video features the RGS System as one
of the most innovative ICT solutions in the clinic and at home, that concretely
contributes with a better and faster recovery treatment for stroke patients, as
well as good healthcare support for an increasingly ageing population.
The video was sponsored by INTERREG IVC, an European interregional cooperation
programme, which objective is to improve the effectiveness of regional policies
and instruments. The TicSalut Foundation is an agency within the Catalan Health
Department that works to promote the development and use of ICT and networking in the field of health. TIC Salut also acts as an observatory for new trends, innovation and monitoring of emerging initiatives, and provides services for the standardization and accreditation of products.
CASA is a project that promotes the development of regional policy and exchange of knowledge around the up scaling of innovative ICT and services for independent living
