RehabTutor is a scalable motor rehabilitation research prototype, based on SPINE framework and BodyCloud middleware to assist the progress of physical rehabilitation.
It is currently optimized for elbow and knee monitoring. Limbs motion measurement is performed using two tiny and lightweight wearable devices equipped with 3-axial accelerometers. Sensors are attached by means of elastic bracelets in specic positions of the limbs for acquiring accelerometer data, which are eventually processed by the BSN coordinator to estimate medical-relevant rehabilitation information such as joint (e.g. elbow and knee) flexion and extension angles.
