Project Summary
A system to support patients with serious brain injury in their rehabilitation for faster, better outcomes. These patients are often confused easily, have memory issues and may not understand their disability.

The proposed system will allow them to independently “access on demand” information about why they are in rehabilitation, their goals, and what they are currently working on. It also has the potential to simulate substantial additional engagement.
