What is it?

CogWatch is a European Commission funded research project whose aim is to enhance the rehabilitation of stroke patients, a third of whom will experience long term physiological and/or cognitive disabilities. 

A significant proportion of these patients can suffer from Apraxia or Action Disorganisation Syndrome (AADS) which, among other symptoms, is demonstrated by the impairment of cognitive abilities to carry out activities of daily living (ADL).

Co-ordinated by the University of Birmingham, CogWatch will develop advanced and intelligent, common objects and tools which will help to re-train patients on how to carry out ADL, by providing persistent multimodal feedback to them. 

How will it work?

The CogWatch tools will be part of a personalized home rehabilitation system for people with the symptoms of AADS.

Installed in patients' homes, the system will silently monitor the patient as they complete tasks. When an error is detected, CogWatch with provide helpful and relevant guidance cues to assist the patient in completing the activity.
