Development and validation of analysis tools and interfaces for automated rehabilitation systems
Automated physiotherapy motion tracking system may improve clinical outcomes by providing subjective measures and continuous monitoring. A study into different metrics that PTs may find useful for diagnosis and a user interface study assessing the current usability of the Automated Rehabilitation System, a system being developed by Cardon rehabilitation, will be conducted. A method to model the central nervous system using controls will be investigated to see if fatigue can be detected, which is a useful metric to provide both patients and physiotherapists. These two projects will significantly improve the effectiveness and usefulness of the Rehabilitation System.
