Physiotherapy balls with pressure sensor

Today, physiotherapy balls or physioballs play an essential role in treating disability or body damages such as neck, waist, knee and so on. Despite their wide range of applications and importance, it is difficult to monitor the damaged member and propose continuous treatment in the presence of a physiotherapist or physician. This causes several problems and costs for the patient. Therefore, a new generation of physiotherapy balls will be created in this project. The idea is to perform exercises and monitoring without the need and/or the presence of a doctor or physiotherapist. This can be of great help for the restoration of a damaged muscle/member or to get a history of the continuous treatment.
