Interactive training systems can embody so-called intelligent technologies: robotics, activity recognition, intelligent tutoring systems and artificial intelligence. For stroke rehabilitation, they cover specific objectives of a rehabilitation program. In order not to limit the intelligence of these systems to specific objectives, the TEAM UP project, funded by ANR, will provide a tool-based approach to the design and development of intelligent interactive training systems that know and recognize all the user tasks in an individual rehabilitation program and are able to adapt their behavior to the user's progress.
The originality of the proposal lies in the systemic, systematic and operational view on the post-stroke rehabilitation process. In addition, while existing state of the art approaches focus on demonstrating the effectiveness of a technology to recover from a specific impairment, our proposal targets to support in a systematic way the adaptation of rehabilitation exercises and program according to patients’ state and to state of the art knowledge on post-stroke rehabilitation. From that perspective, the proposed approach is different but transversal and fully complementary with existing state of the art on rehabilitation technologies and recommendations.
The project aims to propose a method for developing training programs:
- - whatever the patient’s impairment, for taking into account the entire set of rehabilitation goals, while existing approaches generally focus on specific impairments and rehabilitation exercises,
- - that cover all rehabilitation phases, while state of the art approaches to rehabilitation training focus on dedicated phases of rehabilitation or on specific patient impairments.
is the main scientific coordinator of the project. She is associate professor in Computer Science at the Université Paul Sabatier Toulouse III where she leads the Interactive Critical Systems (ICS) team at IRIT lab (Institut de Recherche en Informatique de Toulouse) since early 2021. obtained her PhD in 2011, contributing to the engineering of safe and usable interactive systems. Her expertise for the project is two-fold. First, she is an expert in task models for engineering interactive systems and developed a notation called HAMSTERS for engineering task models, widely used both for teaching and in industry (CNES, Airbus), and that is regularly extended with tool support. Second, she proposed an innovative model-based and tool supported training program development process, which exploits task models throughout the design, development, implementation and evaluation of training programs. More generally, her main research skills and knowledge target methods, processes, techniques and tools to engineer critical interactive systems and for their integration within an organisational context for safe operations.
