Abstract

Rehabilitation or Prehabilitation are vital healthcare practices that allows people to recover their muscle strength and return to their normal daily life activities or be ready for operating on respectively. Each type of injury or operation would require its own specific movement activities that need to be conducted over a predefined supervised or unsupervised program. Tracking, recording and monitoring the daily movement activities can significantly help in follow up the correct implementation of a predefined program. The recent advancement in digital health could be leveraged upon in benefiting the above indicated processes. Internet of Things (IoT) is the technological revolution that allows objects to be interconnected, related movement activities to be tracked and online gathering of real time and history data to be collected. This in effect should offer the possibility of converting regular rehabilitation into a smart rehabilitation care. This paper proposes a generic IoT based testbed using three layered solution for human activity movement monitoring. These are wireless sensing layer, the local processing and internet access layer and remote cloud service layer. Functionality for each of these layers are explored and tested based on hip fractured rehabilitation use cases. Experimental results reflect the ability to drive the system in a software defined mode for accommodating different use cases.
