Demonstration of wearable devices for rehabilitation

Demonstration of wearable devices for rehabilitation
The device was designed by research cooperation with Taipei Medical University and National Taiwan University science and technology. The placement of wearable devices was set up by professional researcher during rehabilitation process.
Device for upper arm and lower arm will be set up at the beginning of session to avoid the unstable skin surface muscle movement. Patient have to place the devices on the smooth skin surface. Patient have to finish 3 times each 6 movements. For shoulder joint, elbow joint, and wrist joint. Each movement took 6 seconds. Wearable device combined with virtual reality and interactive video games was designed and developed for monitoring home rehabilitation process by physical therapist maybe be beneficial in improving upper limb function and activity of living.
We use wearable device for upper limb rehabilitation during stroke recovery to compare the therapeutic effect. For example, variation range of motion, and function outcome. But during experimental group and control group after 15 three month sessions.

In this video, we will show you how we implement the device to patients.

Patients who use it should calibrate the device first. The calibration takes three steps. In this video, during the first two steps, the patient has been failed. He has done it correctly at the third step. In this case, the patient should repeat the step until all three steps are correctly calibrated.
