Abstract:
    A desktop app for physiotherapy patients to perform their assigned exercises within the comfort of their homes using Kinect where the patient's progress shall be monitored by a doctor via web portal.
What is the unmet need in society that your idea will fulfill ?
    Effective physiotherapy is reliant on patients regularly performing their exercises, even at home. Patients undergoing physiotherapy eventually stop performing exercises due to which their full recovery cannot happen. Mainly because they start losing motivation to visit their doctor or it's costly.
Who needs it ? How many would benefit ?
   Patients of AFIRM and other physiotherapy institutes will benefit from this project as it will simplify their problems of visiting the hospital repeatedly. It will make it easier for doctors to monitor their patients. Hundreds of patients can benefit.
How will the solution works
    The desktop app shall provide the exercises to be performed to the patient. Kinect sensor provides skeletal tracking that we will use to map exercises via coordinate mapping and Kinect programming. The progress from the exercises will be analysed through angles and recorded in an online database. The web portal will allow doctors and patients to view progress and give feedback. Doctor can also assign a schedule and leave remarks on the web portal.
Who are your competitors ? How is your solution different
    No competitors in Pakistan yet. It is different as it provides an at home physiotherapy solution which is not yet provided by anyone.
