In this paper, we present work in progress on the development of a smart monitoring framework to support people with motor disabilities and their caregivers in clinical and non-clinical rehabilitation and care environments. The innovation of the platforms lies in the combination of smart monitoring solutions, such as activity recognition and lifestyle tracking, with an intelligent virtual agent that aims to empower and motivate people in need through personalized feedback and responses, as well as to assist caregivers and clinicians to easily collect information about the patients. The proposed system exploits and combines state-of-the-art technologies in speech recognition and synthesis, knowledge representation and reasoning, dialogue management and sensor data analysis, infusing clinical knowledge and patient history Aiming for a practical, acceptable solution, the proposed system takes into account aspects of integration, security and privacy.
