    AGATHE: a tool for personalized rehabilitation of cognitive functions



    Stroke, traumatic brain injury, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s disease, Alzheimer’s … Every year in France, tens of thousands of people fall victim to one of those neurological pathologies. Acquired brain injury leads to cognitive impairment and heavy loss of autonomy. Rehabilitation interventions are needed to enable people to recover capacity and return to Activities of Daily Living (ADL), such as grocery shopping. Unfortunately, the resources made available in cognitive rehabilitation are insufficient for the growing needs of victims of brain damage. The assets of virtual reality to address this big problem of public health are today scientifically recognized [Rizzo and Kim 2005; Klinger, et al. 2010].

    In this context, we designed the AGATHE tool (Adaptable, configurable and upgradable tool for the generation of personalized therapeutic applications in cognitive rehabilitation) (AGATHE project, ANR-09-TECS-002).
