Project summary

In NWE, Europe's most densely populated region, there are approximately 12,000 children with neurological disorders who face lifelong challenges, including severe mobility limitations. These children require personalised rehabilitation plans that address their specific needs and abilities. However, the lack of standardized practices hinders the development of comprehensive programs that can be easily implemented across various healthcare settings. Despite advancements in medical technology and rehabilitation practices, the current landscape of motor rehabilitation lacks access to advanced technological solutions. The scarcity of advanced technologies, including exoskeletons for children, contributes to the classification of the NWE area as a medical desert. To address these challenges and improve the field of neurological pediatric rehabilitation, the RE:HOME project aims to achieve the following objectives : 

First Objective

Developing technologies

Improve access to new technologies by delivering new exoskeleton modules for robot-assisted rehabilitation, smart garments, and also an IT platform to telemonitor and facilitate the transfer of digital technologies. 

Second Objective

Pilot Actions

Provide standardized transnational training programs for hospital and home use. Pilots will be developed in Belgium and Netherlands (pilot countries). These programs will be adapted and tested in sub-regional areas in Haut de France, and subsequently disseminated to private practitioners in Germany. This will promote a shift from a hospital-centered approach to a more territorial health system, facilitating the transfer of tools in care services and strengthening territorial care networks.

Target audience

Third Objective

Development of joint learning schemes

Implement a joint learning scheme that targets healthcare professionals, parents, children, and the general public. This initiative improves access to information and knowledge, promotes social inclusion for disabled individuals, and develops local capacity for change in the area covered by the consortium.We plan to target students , practitioners , parents and children and SMEs , stakeholders ( policy makers or funders) in the covered areas by the consortium.

Higher education and Research organisations 

This project involves universities. The students from these different universities will be involved by participating to the project and/or to specific modules specially developed. We plan to reach at least 20 students in each university per year.

Hospitals and medical centres

This project involves hospitals and medical centers as partners and as associated partners. Others hospitals and medical centers (4, 1 per country of the consortium) will be involved during demonstration actions, webinars, public demonstrations in WP2 and learning sessions in WP3. We plan to reach practitioners (100)

General public

In the 4 countries, dissemination actions (participation in specific fairs, public demonstration, social network diffusion), at least one by country covered by the consortium, will allow us to reach the general public, we plan to involve 25 persons per country. We will invite public authorities at all the events held during RE:HOME


In the 4 countries, dissemination actions (participation in specific fairs, public demonstration, social network diffusion, at least one per country covered by the consortium) will allow us to reach interested SMEs in the fields of mechanical, electrical, IT, and textiles engineering by technologies developed in WP1. We plan to involve 16 SMEs in all countries. One per speciality and per country.

Interest groups 

including NGOs

We plan to involve parents associations concerned by CP during clinical testing and learning session. Involve 1 stakeholder per country to disseminate and promote the expected results in the fields of homecare, and rehabilitation.
