In many countries of the world, the life expectancy increases but the population ages so rapidly that it is expected that soon it will be difficult to ensure a good life quality to the elder people when health issues arise. In this paper, we consider this problem from the point of view of the physiotherapy rehabili- tation which nowadays is perceived as costly and inconvenient for the elder patients. In order to lessen these problems, we propose a distributed architecture to allow the physiotherapists to remotely assist their patients while they comfortably do exercises from home. As in other proposals, the Human Pose Recognition is delegated to a computer equipped with MS Kinect and neural networks. Our approach, however, differs from others because it includes a logical framework based on Event Calculus augmented with Expectations which provides a higher-level description of the exercises and a mean to measure how well they were done.
