Abstract

The creation of innovative methods and technologies for elderly is the main purpose for Ambient Assisted Living. This paper provides a description on all the associated stages and development questions required for the establishment of a new telerehabilitation service. The service intends to provide elderly people with the possibility of performing rehabilitation sessions in their houses, with constant medical supervision via video surveillance. Following the principles of a new conceptual architecture for services, and developed according to user-centric paradigms such as multimodality and high usability criteria, early evaluation results point the service as an asset for remote rehabilitation.
