D3: Patient-centered Outcomes to Guide the Design and Implementation of Technology in the Home for Neurological Assessment, Therapy, and Assistance | Washington, D.C. | School of Engineering - The Catholic University of America, Washington DC | CUASkip to main content
To assure that technologies researched and developed under the proposed RERC are both aligned with patient-prioritized rehabilitation outcomes as well as designed in such a way as to be both useful to and usable by patients and their families/caregivers in the home environment.
Engage patients and their caregivers as partners to articulate patient-centered criteria to guide technology R&D for assessment, therapy, and/or assistance for each of our target etiological groups: infants with developmental delay, children with CP, and adult stroke survivors.
Fine tune therapy, and correctly identifying patient/caregiver priorities for rehabilitation outcomes. Identify and articulate patient-centered criteria to guide the research and development work of the other proposed projects. The proposed etiologies of focus in this RERC are clearly defined and touch on the experience of disability across the lifespan from infancy (developmental delay), through childhood (CP), and into adult life (stroke).
