Based on the results of the EU-funded project DE-4208 RESORT (1998-2001).

What is RESORT?

RESORT is a telematic system dedicated to provide remote support to disabled users and their carer persons. It combines existing technologies as video conferencing and document sharing with innovative techniques as real time synchronsiation of RT systems. RESORT provides an easy to use and adaptable user interface for TeleRehabilitation and an open interface specification which allows to make other PC-based RT systems RESORT compliant.
