Jane Burridge, Professor of Restorative Neuroscience at the University of Southampton
‘Tele-health and wearable sensors in stroke recovery: Intensity and independence.’
Jane leads the Neurorehabilitation Research Group. Jane’s research is about improving recovery of movement following acquired brain damage. Fundamental to this is understanding the mechanisms associated with normal, loss and recovery of motor function. Jane’s work crosses traditional rehabilitation boundaries, collaborating with engineers, neuroscientists and psychologists.
Jane’s current research is with wearable sensors to support home-based rehabilitation and generate objective measures of impairment. She leads a research programme into the use of the Internet to support home-based rehabilitation, and is particularly interested in understanding how rehabilitation technologies can translate into clinical practice.

This lecture will present the case for the use of wearable sensors and the Internet to improve outcomes following stroke. It will combine a very short introduction to the evidence for intensity, the rationale for the technologies and will describe two technologies that have been developed and are undergoing clinical evaluation.

Host: Stanley Salmons All welcome. All IACD students are expected to attend.
