Abstract

The SMILING project is planning to diminish age related impairments by interfering with mobility disability and improving carry-over into real life situations. The new approach is intended to challenge the patient to solve new motor problems in real time by inducing variable environments that need active response and problem solving from the target population. This multidisciplinary project aims at a reorganization of the rehabilitation process in ageing, through new training procedures and advanced technologies needed to deliver them.
