Abstract

Stroke is a very debilitating disease that a stroke survivor can suffer. It can result in both physical and cognitive deficits in the survivor. Without regular rehabilitation, a survivor will reach a chronic condition resulting in a huge burden. Rehabilitation is expansive, and a major issue is access as care givers are needed to take survivors to rehabilitation centres. This paper presents Neuromender::FlexiBrains, a novel game-based rehabilitation system with autonomous adjustment capabilities that can be used in a stroke survivor's home. The system was developed in collaboration with clinicians, neuroscientists and stroke survivors. Stroke clinicians can customise their rehabilitation to cater for each stroke survivor's deficits. The system enables clinicians to remotely monitor and track their clients' progress. Rehabilitation regimes can also be adjusted remotely. The system enables prescribed monitored rehabilitation to be carried out, and it permits clinicians to take care of more survivors without sacrificing the quality of care.
