Development of telerehabilitation application with designated consultation categories

Kok Kiong Tan, PhD, et al.

This work focuses on the development of a telerehabilitation application with predefined consultation categories to choose from. The tailor-made consultation categories have different settings for features such as frame rate, resolution, color, and spatial information, and each one focuses on a specific type of motion. All the categories are designed to work well in a low-bandwidth environment, so that the application can be used even in network-scarce situations, such as in developing countries. Novel algorithms are introduced to reduce the huge data payload caused by video frames. The initial test of the system by therapists showed encouraging results. Successful use of this application may solve current healthcare issues such as the inability of rural populations to access proper medical care and the uneven distribution of medical resources across these areas.
