Mobile Health App for Biofeedback Response in Physiotherapy - Development and Validation

Gonçalo Telo, Hugo Gamboa

Abstract

This work consists in developing an electromyographic biofeedback system in the form of a user-friendly mobile application which is simple to use, as it was designed to be an auxiliary component in physiotherapy sessions. This was achieved by implementing a framework that allows the integration of multi-platform plugins, as well as a web view based user interface, which assures the best of the designs allied to the specifications of the native APIs. The communication between the native and the JavaScript methods was tested, as the validation of the application was made internally.
