AART-BC is funded!
The Adaptive Assistive Rehabilitative Technologies-Beyond the Clinic project arose from an EPSRC funded Sandpit in September 2014. We call the project AART-BC (or "Artbook") for short. AART-BC starts in April 2014.
This project focuses on the development of a platform to monitor the use of AT and compliance with RP and support the patient outside of the clinic.
We are 7 institutions in the AART-BC consortium, these include: University of Warwick, University of York, University of Cardiff, University of Kent, University of Salford, Oxford Brookes University and University College London.
The AART-BC plan
A suite of sensors will sense patient and RT’s alike. Data from the sensor suite are used to provide Individualised Condition Signatures, which are used to feedback to the user and their environment, the clinician/ carer and the research stakeholder.
AART-BC problem space
AART-BC is about monitoring usage and compliance of ART in many different ways: 1.Various patient groups will be considered. 2. ART in the home and out & about. 3. ART applied to wheelchair users, stroke rehab, prothesis. 4. Various quality measures will assess performance.
Sharing our Developments
We intend to share progress in the various developments as part of AART-BC, be they the novel use of tattoo sensors, the extraction of individualised condition signatures or the numerous technical and pilot trials we intend to run.
Seminars & Workshops
As part of this project we will be organising a number of meetings each year open to all interested end-users -please visit our web-pages, we will post up relevant information here.
