Tele-rehabilitation through interactive video endorsement

Objective

THRIVE uses current ICT to improve the level of care provided to spinal cord injured patients and allows them to return to their family settings without compromising the quality of treatment they receive. It brings specialised rehabilitation facilities nearer the patient's home. This may mean an earlier discharge or closer follow-up care in close collaboration between the specialised multi-disciplinary team at the centres and patients, caregivers and homecare staffs. This approach to rehabilitation (tale-rehabilitation) will be evaluated in three countries; Belgium, Italy and the UK, which represent both public and liberal medicine, care systems. Tele-rehabilitation impact will be measured in terms of quality of care, patient's quality of life and satisfaction (including relatives/caregivers) and economics. Tele-rehabilitation protocols will be specified, validated and submitted to the competent authorities for accreditation.
