Abstract

Continuous monitoring during rehabilitation, enabled by digital technologies, will allow us to objectively capture real world mobility and be better placed to tailor therapy and respond to changing trends in recovery.
In order to explore feasibility and added value of such approaches, we present a case study of a 36 year-old male subject monitored continuously for activity levels and gait parameters using a waist-worn inertial sensor following a tibial plateau fracture. During rehabilitation, data was collected for a period of 553 days with greater than 80% daytime compliance, until the subject returned to near full mobility. The subject completed a daily diary with annotation of major events (falls, near falls, cycling periods, physiotherapy sessions) and key dates in the patient's recovery, including medical interventions, transitioning off crutches and returning to work.
We demonstrate feasibility of collecting continuous digital mobility data over long periods of time, and show that such data enable insights into long term trends in rehabilitation.
We make raw data and annotations available as a resource with the intention that further insights can be built on this initial exploration of added value and continue to demonstrate how continuous monitoring can be deployed to aid rehabilitation.
