New Methodologies for Patients Rehabilitation
22 January 2018 (online)
Objective: The present editorial is part of the focus theme of Methods of Information in Medicine titled “New Methodologies for Patients Rehabilitation”, with a specific focus on technologies and human factors related to the use of Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) for improving patient rehabilitation.
Methods: The focus theme explores different dimensions of empowerment methodologies for disabled people in terms of rehabilitation and health care, and to explores the extent to which ICT is a useful tool in this process.
Results: The focus theme lists a set of research papers that present different ways of using ICT to develop advanced systems that help disabled people in their rehabilitation process.
