    Abstract

    Patients undergoing physical therapy have limited ways of assessing exercise correctness at home. Correspondingly, physical therapists lack visibility into their patients’ rehabilitation processes when away from the clinic. Our approach to this problem is through a wearable electronic device that helps patients visualize the accuracy of their movements and helps therapists monitor the progress of their patients’ home exercise programs. This feedback loop could facilitate recovery by helping patients and therapists collaborate on shared recovery goals.
