In this work we present the development and preliminary testing of a wearable-technology-enabled platform for the remote rehabilitation of a large number of shoulder muscular-skeletal diseases. The presented system (Shoulphy) is conceived to lead and assess the patient, wearing a minimal set of inertial sensors, through personalized physical rehabilitation programs under the remote supervision of the physician/therapist. We have introduced a minimal inertial sensor set and an associated biomechanical reconstruction method based on a bi-articular model of the shoulder. We have tested the system in classical shoulder rehabilitation exercises and we have demonstrated that the system is able to discriminate between correct and compensatory movement strategies.

Abstract

In this work we present the development and preliminary testing of a wearable-technology-enabled platform for the remote rehabilitation of a large number of shoulder muscular-skeletal diseases. The presented system (Shoulphy) is conceived to lead and assess the patient, wearing a minimal set of inertial sensors, through personalized physical rehabilitation programs under the remote supervision of the physician/therapist. We have introduced a minimal inertial sensor set and an associated biomechanical reconstruction method based on a bi-articular model of the shoulder. We have tested the system in classical shoulder rehabilitation exercises and we have demonstrated that the system is able to discriminate between correct and compensatory movement strategies.
