    By the development of a mHealth tablet app together with modular interactive tiles for rehabilitation, we intend to facilitate the co-design, adaptation, demonstration and validation of modular ICT solutions for rehabilitation in deep rural sub-Saharan Africa. This results in highly mobile, modular and energy efficient technology which can be set up and used anywhere and anytime. We have formed a national partnership for sustainable implementation, comprising a governmental representative, national hospital, national health university department, regional hospitals, Living Labs and NGOs performing community-based rehabilitation. Thereby, we investigate the adaptation, contextualisation and implementation in different rehabilitation methods and centres, including hospitals both in a city centres and in a rural area, NGO’s performing community based rehabilitation, and rehabilitation centres. Together, the partners contextualise the eHealth solution to fit the needs in urban, rural and deep rural areas.
