From diagnostics to therapy--conceptual basis for real-time movement feedback in rehabilitation medicine


, : From diagnostics to therapy--conceptual basis for real-time movement feedback in rehabilitation medicine. Biomedizinische Technik. Biomedical Engineering 51(5-6): 299-304

Recently, locomotion therapy on a treadmill has become part of rehabilitation programs for neurological gait disorders (spinal cord injury, hemiplegia). Instrumental gait analysis is an important tool for quantification of therapy progress in terms of functional changes in a patient's gait patterns. Whereas most of current applications focus on diagnostic assessment of gait, the current paper presents an extension of movement analysis offering enhanced therapeutic options. Specifically, the conceptual basis for application of real-time movement feedback in rehabilitation medicine is outlined and is put into context with recent developments in the field. A first technical realization of these concepts is presented and first results are reported. Furthermore, open questions towards a universal environment for movement feedback in rehabilitation medicine are discussed and future lines of research are identified.
