Short abstract and comments
Information System (IS) offers much promise to improve information management for physiotherapists. IS may improve clinical and administrative reporting capabilities, operational efficiency, communication among health professionals, communication with patients, data accuracy and the capacity to support clinical research. However, the key factor for success of healthcare information system implementation and adoption is engagement of end-user. Tailored information system is proposed in this project, enable to non-invasively/unobtrusively measure balance and movements as well as to improve the effectiveness of physiotherapy based on serious game and augmented reality. Wireless body sensors network (WSN) will be developed for better balance and movements’ characterization. Usability tests of tailored virtual environment for physiotherapy will be carried out as well usability tests of information system developed for physiotherapy practice based on implemented WSN, serious game and augmented reality. The system may improve the effectiveness of physiotherapy and enable measuring additional constructs to enhance more comprehensive clinical reasoning processes (i.e., motor control, determinants for behavioural change and patient engagement).
