Abstract
The paper presents a case study based on a system for the monitoring of daily functions in post-stroke rehabilitation patients. The system is capable of monitoring some daily life functions of the patient, by providing to the rehabilitation experts information about the correct or wrong activation of the monitored muscles during those specific functions. The monitoring system consists of a wearable wireless device, equipped with electrogoniometers and electromyography sensors, and by a signal processing software. Preliminary experiments have been conducted on post-stroke patients.
