The patient wears small sensors while they exercise that send data back to the therapist to monitor progress and help when needed. Through an interactive, virtual reality avatar on a tablet, patients are guided to perform exercises correctly. It provides real-time feedback and an ongoing connection between patient and therapist to ensure the patient is successfully recovering.
