About The Book
Individuals with neurological disorders often face significant challenges, including isolation, passivity, and reliance on caregivers. Assistive technology-based interventions (AT) offer a promising solution to these issues. By bridging the gap between individual capabilities and environmental demands, AT programs promote independence, self-determination, and active engagement for people with neurological disorders. These technologies empower individuals to achieve functional daily activities, reducing their dependence on family and caregivers and improving their overall quality of life.
"The volume represents an updated comprehensive edited book and provides the reader with the newest technological solutions available for both assessment and recovery purposes. Neurodegenerative disorders combined with neurodegenerative diseases were included. Post-coma patients with disorders of consciousness were embedded. Families, caregivers, clinicians, scientists, researchers, and practitioners may find useful insights and new helpful technological solutions for daily life. Systematic reviews, empirical contributions, and conceptual chapters were supported by illustrative examples in the specific framework."

---Prof. Fabrizio Stasolla
This book delves into the use of AT-based programs to enhance independence and self-determination in individuals with neurological disorders. The book provides detailed insights into specific AT interventions, the technologies employed, and their positive effects on patients. It also emphasizes evidence-based practices, shedding light on the efficacy of these interventions. Notably, the book explores the application of technologies such as virtual reality (VR) setups and augmented reality (AR) as effective ecological environments for assessment and rehabilitation. These technologies ensure methodological control and enable behavioral tracking during the intervention process.
