Health and Telemedicine in neuroRehabilitation: a new approach to functional recovery

Please note that the job is no longer active!

Telerehabilitation is a communication/ informatics system which gives remote medical and rehabilitation assistance.

Telerehabilitation system may allow costs reduction without medical/rehabilitation quality variation, increasing duration and frequency of the treatment; remote control also reduces costs connected to patients’ displacement and hospital admission.

The aim of the project was to evaluate the efficacy of telemedicine in rehabilitation of different neurological diseases and to estimate the economical vantage of this application in relation to conventional treatment.

We then wish to combine the telerehabilitation treatment with neuromodulation technique (TDCs), because these transcranial electrical stimulations can help functional recovery after nervous system injury.

Please note that the full description may be available in the national language since some job boards have their own publication policy. Thank you for your understanding!
