A significant proportion of stroke survivors experience symptoms of cognitive deficits characteristic of Apraxia and Action Disorganisation Syndrome. AADS affects the ability to carry out sequential actions in activities of daily living (ADL) such as making a cup of tea. Common errors observed include perseveration, omission or addition of actions, and quantity mis-estimation. Current rehabilitation methods are labour intensive in terms of therapist time, and there is a lack of opportunity for supervised practice. We present CogWatch, a personalized rehabilitation system being developed to deliver continuous cognitive rehabilitation at home, using a novel combination of intelligent algorithms and instrumented objects to persistently monitor behaviour, guide actions, and provide multimodal feedback to patients in real-time.
