Abstract: The usage of evidence based decision making is supported along the different professions in the health care system. State of the art in the physiotherapy, especially in the sensorimotor training is that the therapy planning mainly based on the experiences of the physiotherapist as well as by the information given by the manufacturer and the literature. The aim of this study is to show, that the wireless sensor s are a benefit in planning as well as during the execution of the therapy. Therefor different assumptions were verified. Additionally, a survey about the acceptance and the benefit of the sensors was made. Ten test persons performed a laterality test and the sensorimotor training on three different exercisers. During the whole training the muscle activity as well as the motion data was document by the usage of wireless sensors. Immediately after the training, all test persons fulfilled the survey. The study revealed that is important to investigate the training in more detail. Nevertheless, most assumptions are seen as basic principles, they could not be verified. The evaluation of the surveys figured out, that the usage of wireless sensors can be seen as an advantage, but the application has to be optimized. (More)
