Physiotherapy at home

Published on

"Physiotherapy at home" considers a possible alternative to physiotherapy treatments at a healthcare facility.

Travelling to a healthcare facility can be expensive, time-consuming and create unnecessary exposure to other patients, among other factors.

Our proposal is to use consumer technology to allow patients to receive some forms of physiotherapy treatment through the web. Team Albatross created a system where healthcare professionals create exercises targeting specific parts of the body and monitor patients performing these exercises in real-time. We created this working prototype in 24-hours.

Team Albatross is George Goh and Liu Xiaohui.
