Health In Motion
Physiotherapy might not be the activity that makes a child’s heart beat faster. Video games do. Children love to play.
HIMO intergrates the exercises with video games. Imagine a car that moves only when you are standing tiptoe. Or Super Mario who jumps when you draw your toes in.
The heart of HIMO is a band placed around the user’s lower leg. The embedded sensors detect the muscle activity and the movements of the foot are connected to game actions.
HIMO makes life easier for the therapists and the parents.
If the children love the activity, the therapist can focus on the efficiency of the exercises, instead of motivating her little patient. Thus better results can be achieved in shorter time. Better results lead to more clients and improved client satisfaction.
Simple & straightforward
It can be used without special training. It can be used at home. Because exercising at home has no match. The more exercise the faster results.
The data collected and saved by the system can be accessed and analyzed remotely by the therapist.
Consciously or unconsciously, patients tend to cheat. HIMO detects muscle activity not just the movement, to eliminate this problem.
