Presenter: Dr. Amine Choukou, Assistant Professor, College of Rehabilitation Sciences and Gerry McDole Professor in Improved Healthcare Delivery to Rural, Remote and Underserved Populations of Manitoba

This talk addresses the recent development of non-obtrusive smart technologies and systems to enable ageing in place and access to rehabilitation services to rural, remote and underserved populations living with disabilities or long-term conditions. Telepresence, telemonitoring and telerehabilitation are promising approaches in addressing the need for telecare amid the COVID-19 and beyond and supporting the families as they take care of their beloved ones.
