'Telerehab' system allows patients to do physiotherapy at home

05 May 2017 Department of Information Systems & Analytics , Faculty , News Media

 
Smart Health TeleRehab is a system that aims to make physiotherapy as painless as possible: by allowing patients to exercise at any time of the day, within the comfort of their own homes. This removes the need for a patient to commute to and from a rehabilitation centre and hopefully, boost participation rates in attendance for rehabilitative therapy, which would then prevent the chances of re-admission to hospital. Professor Atreyi Kankanhalli said the TeleRehab method also gives patients a greater sense of autonomy and control, as they can do the rehabilitation exercises on their own. She added: "With the increasing incidence of chronic diseases, shortage of healthcare professionals, and yet the availability of more intelligent technologies, healthcare is a prime sector that can benefit from Smart Nation initiatives - in addition to other key sectors such as transport, commerce, utilities, security and education."
