Adherence monitoring of rehabilitation exercises

Primary supervisor

Pari Delir Haghighi


Recent advances in mobile computing and wireless sensors play a significant role in enabling remote and out-of-hospital monitoring. Measuring and detecting physical activities in individuals can assist with monitoring adherence to home exercise programmes that are crucial for successful rehabilitation. Most current works in this area use Inertial Measurement Units (IMUs) sensors to monitor physical activity.

Student cohort

Single Semester
Double Semester


In this project, we will explore the feasibility of stretchable sensors for developing home exercise monitoring and compare them to a commercial IMU-based sensor.
