Winning an award

Winner of Hack for Good @Home


Re·Habilita is a software that has the main objective to serve as a support tool for health professionals to implement a rehabilitation plan. However, it can also be used for the maintenance of home care by the informal caregiver.

We live in times of enormous change, globally, at the environmental, humanitarian, and health levels. In this context, health professionals are called upon to provide the best response to rehabilitation needs. Still, because of the need to reduce the influx to central hospitals, they need to continue with rehabilitation care at home to reduce disability and increase functionality and psychological well-being.

But unlike health professionals, who generally have the technology present in their daily lives, seniors are uncomfortable with new technologies. First, they were not used to dealing with technology. Second, it is usually very different from what they know.

And this is where Re·Habilita differs from other solutions, where we combine the benefits of traditional physical objects with new technologies in a seamless and easy-to-use way, for everybody.

Re·Habilita will focus on exercises for Alzheimer's patients, aiming to help stimulate some cognitive activities that are degraded with the disease's progression and the software will be divided into three difficulty levels and tangible objects will be used for this interaction between the Alzheimer's patient and the Re·Habilita.
