Bell's palsy is a partial face palsy where the patient is unable to control the facial muscles of the affected side. On average it takes from 30 to 45 days of daily exercises for the subject to regain total movement of paralyzed muscles. The aim of this work is to develop biometric tools in order to help the recovery of Bell´s palsy patients. This will be possible by the continuous and automatic measurement of the evolution of the treatment as stated by the health care professional involved.
