In this editorial, we report on the development of a smart-home-based cognitive prosthetic that will deliver 24/7 rehabilitation at the James A. Haley Veterans' Hospital Polytrauma Transitional Rehabilitation Program (PTRP) facility in Tampa, Florida. The Tampa Smart Home was designed to address two weaknesses identified by PTRP clinicians in the rehabilitation process for patients with traumatic brain injury (TBI): (1) patient safety and (2) inadequate timing and repetition of prompts used to overcome TBI-related cognitive and memory deficits.
