Title
(EN) REMOTE MONITORING OF AN INSTRUMENTED ORTHOSIS
(FR) COMMANDE A DISTANCE D'ORTHESE AVEC INSTRUMENTS
Abstract
(EN)
An instrumented orthosis (102) is interfaced to a telecommunication system (104) such that a patient and health care professional can exchange communications including the monitoring of the instrumented orthosis (102). Thus, a health care professional can evaluate rehabilitation treatments based on an instrumented orthosis (102) from a remote location while obtaining real-time feedback from the patient. The communications can include audio and/or video transmissions.
(FR)
Une interface est établie entre une orthèse avec instruments (102) et un système de télécommunications (104): ainsi, le patient et le professionnel des soins de santé peuvent communiquer et suivre les opérations. Dès lors, le professionnel des soins de santé peut évaluer les traitements de réhabilitation sur la base de cette orthèse (102), depuis un emplacement distant, tout en recevant les réactions du patient en temps réel. Il peut s'agir de communication audio et/ou vidéo.
