Remote Electronic rehabilitation service to enable safe delivery and remote monitoring of lower limb rehabilitation in the community.

A grant was awarded by Arthritis Research UK (ARUK) and Manchester AHSC Healthcare Challenge in December 2013, fo the research project: iRehabAngel: Improving care and outcomes through patient input and feedback using remote monitoring of physical rehabilitation, assessment and exercise regimen compliance before and after appointments with healthcare professionals. Development of a remote electronic rehabilitation service to enable safe delivery and remote monitoring of lower limb rehabilitation in the community. £80,000 over 12 months.

This is a grant awarded with colleagues in Nursing (Drs Emma Stanmore and Christine Brown Wilson) and colleagues in EEE (Prof Krikor Ozanyan and Dr Paul Wright) together with NHS podiatrist Neil Frame and SME MDTi (Medical Device Technology International). It uses the optical fibre imagimat (magic carpet) technology to remotely log and analyse exercising on a tilted platform to improve limb function and mobility.

It  employs PDRAs Dr John Vaughan in the PSI and Dr Jose Cantoral Ceballos in EEE.
