Paper title: A CLOUD-BASED ARCHITECTURE PROPOSAL FOR REHABILITATION OF APHASIA PATIENTS

Author(s): DORIN CÂRSTOIU, VIRGINIA ECATERINA OLTEAN, SANDA MARIA NICA, GABRIEL SPIRIDON,

Abstract:

Aphasia concerns neurological disorders of speech, with moderate to severe dysfunction of the mechanisms involved in language expression and understanding, and influencing the major components of language behavior. Aphasia rehabilitation involves a speech language therapist and the principles of therapy regard the intensity of exercises execution, the use of multiple forms of sensory stimuli and the increase of exercises difficulty. The therapy is expensive and has to be customized to patients’ specificity, including their native language. This paper proposes, as a work in progress, a cloud-based architecture for aphasia rehabilitation of patients having Romanian as their native language. The plaltform comprises an application database, an application logic and interfaces for patients and therapists. Accompanied by a virtual assistant, the patient has to solve exercises built by the therapist and, depending on the obtained scores, the treatment is adjusted and data can be stored in a statistic module. A scoring procedure is proposed, as part of the application logic and back-up solutions for minimizing the estimated riksks during the project’s lifecycle are formulated.
