Abstract
Providing a suitable rehabilitation after an acute episode or a chronic disease is a major issue as it helps people to live independently and enhance their quality of life. However, as the rehabilitation period usually lasts some months, the continuity of care is often interrupted in the transition from the hospital to the home. Virtual coaches can help these patients to proceed with a personalized rehabilitation that complies with age-related conditions. These coaches are a key technology for empowering patients through the enhancement of the adherence to the care plan and the prevention of risks. In this paper, we are presenting a novel virtual coaching system that aims to address these challenges by combining recent technological advances with clinical pathways.
