    Abstract

    Long-term chronic conditions pose a significant challenge in modern healthcare systems in terms of a reduction in quality of life and the increased costs associated with their management. The concept of self-management can help address these issues supported through the introduction of home based assistive and rehabilitation telecare technologies. The proposed solution aims to produce a home-based platform that supports a number of chronic diseases such as Chronic Pain, Congestive Heart Failure and Stroke. The long-term vision of this work is to take into consideration supporting further conditions such as Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease. The system aims to promote behavior change by monitoring activity metrics, performing analysis, which ultimately leads to providing feedback to the user in a meaningful and engaging manner.
