Telerehabilitation (TR) has been proven to be an effective tool in improving the adaptive skills of children and young adults with Multiple Disabilities (MDs). The application of a comprehensive set of new technologies reveals new opportunities for both physical and cognitive telerehabilitation, but there is no holistic approach in the case of genetic syndromes. In this paper we present reflections and early results of the TCTRS project that aims at implementing a telerehabilitation system capable of offering complete coverage of rehabilitation needs for people with Rett Syndrome, from both the physical and cognitive points of view. Moreover, the data acquired through the system can also represent a basis for machine learning applications to remotely support therapists and physicians. Our first tests on the system application show the great potential of our approach, in terms of feasibility and applicability, for both rehabilitation centers and families. View Full-Text
