Research regarding telerehabilitation for stroke patients’ places little emphasis on monitoring and assessment. To effectively monitor a patient, assessment must be continuous; from the inpatient/outpatient setting, to the remote. However, assessment methods used by Occupational Therapists’ can be qualitative and difficult to automate for a remote location. The aim of this research is to develop a system which presents the Occupational Therapist with a tool that, whilst not altering current routine, provides Range of Motion (ROM) analysis from current and previous rehabilitation sessions. Amalgamated data can then be achieved through the use of the same prototype in a remote location. Results from the prototype are outputted in graphical format, detailing movement throughout the session. The system details minimum and maximum extremities of patient ROM throughout all sessions and can be compared with the ROM required to perform certain activities of daily living. This prototype system allows the therapist to continue traditional rehabilitation, whilst providing graphical feedback over time, including detailed ADL assessment. If then used by the patient in a remote location, movements can be analysed and reported to the therapist. The prototype provides visual feedback, helping to increase motivation, whilst providing data that can generate adaptable rehabilitation programs.
