CALLEJAS-CUERVO, Mauro; VELEZ-GUERRERO, Manuel Andrés; RUIZ-OLAYA, Andrés Felipe  and  GUTIERREZ, Rafael M. Architecture proposal for a support system to upper limb telerehabilitation by capturing biomechanical signals. Rev. Fac. ing. [online]. 2015, vol.24, n.40, pp.41-48. ISSN 0121-1129.

This article proposes a system for Telerehabilitation of people with motor disorders of the upper limb, by making a literature review about works related with the provision of the physical therapy service with ICT’s use. Likewise, there is a brief description of the modules integrating the system: motion capture system based on inertial sensors and motion capture with camera; joint angle estimator was implemented through Kalman filter; IT app which registers the electronic medical record and finally, the active videogames module.

Keywords : Upper limb rehabilitation; inertial sensors; telerehabilitation; Kalman filter; e-health.
