Philips Research is developing and clinically testing solutions to increase the efficiency and effectiveness of rehabilitation. The Stroke Rehabilitation Exerciser supports patients and therapists in the implementation and execution of a personalized neurological motor exercise plan at home. It enables an efficient therapy planning for the medical professional and increases the training intensity for the patient. The stroke rehabilitation exerciser coaches the patient through a sequence of neurological motor exercises, which are prescribed by the physiotherapist and uploaded to a patient unit. A wireless inertial sensor system records the patient's movements. The data is automatically analyzed for deviations from a personal movement target and patient and therapist are provided with adequate feedback.
