The SANaR project’s overarching objective is to design, develop and deploy a novel evidence based Personal Health System for the remote management and rehabilitation of stroke. Stroke is recognized as one of the major challenges for European Society. Current demand for rehabilitation, let alone its future increase can only be addressed by deploying technology. SANaR delivers such a technology in the form of a novel virtual reality based system for personalized diagnostics and cognitive and functional rehabilitation at home for the most common deficits and disabilities resulting from stroke. In particular SANaR will focus on motor and cognitive deficits including deficits in attention, perception, memory, problem solving, executive function and communication.


This project has received funding from the Spanish national program Retos Investigación 2013 del Ministerio de Economomía y competitividad.
