Welcome to the SiLCK network
SiLCK is an informatic framework for use in the
rehabilitation of patients with neurological
disease, such as stroke. It is being developed with two broad aims:
- To strengthen conventional therapies, by encouraging us to explore the clinical
observations and interpretations which we make when planning our patients'
- To make complex rehabilitation devices (such as robotic systems) more accessible to clinicians, by showing how clinical
observations of a patient might be
automatically translated into device
Although the framework is purely conceptual, it has been designed with a view to
implementation by artificial intelligence
techniques. SiLCK thereby provides a
template for clinically-oriented software
products, such as SiLCK CLinic.
