Virtual Rehab Trial Results

ForaHealthyMe Inc. and the Physical Activity Centre of Excellence (PACE), and the McMaster University Department of Kinesiology completed a research project to test, refine and evaluate an adaptive activity with range of motion model (AARoM) for the elderly.

Study participants ranged in age from 65 to 83 years old.

The project included embedding and evaluating established clinical protocols into a computer system to develop new approaches to treat and support patients with chronic health issues such as musculoskeletal care, and in need of rehabilitation support.

Participants not only interacted with the system by responding the rehab protocols prescribed by researchers, but also provided feedback on a variety of elements.

With comments like, “Exercise steps were clear and easy to follow”, “the program is logical and easy to follow” and “I think it’d be very beneficial down the road for people looking to exercise from a distance,” the majority of participants responded favourably to the system.

In addition, the majority of participants said they would use the system again and also recommend it.
