   - Focused on addressing the needs of older adults for rehabilitation and frailty prevention.

2. Development:

   -  Integrated with VR-based exergames tailored for rehabilitation needs.

   -  Integrated with a digital health record management platform for clinicians.

   - Integrated with IoT connectivity for real-time biosignal monitoring.

   - Designed and developed a mobile app for non-professional caregivers.

3. Implementation:

   - Contributed to the implementation of a connected ecosystem of innovative medical hardware.

   - Implemented a mobile app for non-professional caregivers

4. Validation and Testing:

   - Conducted functional tests and clinical validations to ensure effectiveness and safety.

   - Addressed the interoperability with existing clinical infrastructures.

5. Deployment:

   - Contributed to the launch of the RecoveryFun solution for use in home care settings.

   - Contributed to a tele-rehabilitation option for clinics to expand their services.
