Abstract

Neurodegenerative diseases (NDD) require a constant care and attention in pharmacological therapy and rehabilitation, exercises administration, functional assessments and management of daily life. In this paper, we discuss a possible role of pervasive solutions with respect to NDD, on the basis of the overall progress of ICT and on the experience achieved in our department in three fields: Assistive Technology, NDD quantitative assessment, and design and development of wearable devices.
