Database representation

Clinical analysis of locomotor disorders includes functional analysis of physical disabilities, for example, using motion analysis methods.

These analysis methods might vary from one clinical centre to the other. This variety of methods complicates data comparison and patient report exchange and interpretation.

The ICT4Rehab project is developing tools to standardize functional data.

For example, the representation of patient motion performance is often dependent of the local habits adopted by a particular clinical centre.

The tools developed by ICT4Rehab will allow various clinical centres to store their data according to a standardized representation available from the ICT4Rehab database.

Once stored in the ICT4Rehab, these data can be used for producing clinical reports or more advanced data analysis required for decision-making activities.
