eKARE+ provides a digital solution to current physiotherapy services, creating remote patient-driven rehabilitation services. This project is part of the Technologies in Health Ageing research group at the University of Liverpool.
Pressures on Rehabilitation Services
Current rehabilitation services simply cannot keep up with the demand for them, and increasing capacity requires a larger workforce as most services are performed face to face.
By transforming current rehabilitation services to become patient driven and remotely administered, we can increase capacity without a significant increase in the labour force.
This is achieved using inexpensive motion tracking technologies that do not require markers or large setups, paired with our algorithms to detect and analyse motions, as a therapist would do.
Rehabilitate At Home
eKARE+ moves rehabilitation from the hospital to your homes. Using a single inexpensive technology, patients can perform remotely prescribed exercises within the comfort of their homes or any other environment.
The platform records your movements and provides a report on your performance, used to review your progress and for therapists to monitor your wellbeing.
Our team are digitalising physiotherapy rehabilitation services to improve access and promote long term care plans. Aligning with the Rehabilitation 2030 call for action by the World Health Organization.
