PUBLICATION - SEKO: Smart System for Assisting Home-Based Rehabilitation of Knee Arthroplasty Patients

(20-09-2018)

Junior researcher Arno Penders published his first article about SEKO, together with mict colleagues dr. Johanna Octavia and prof. dr. ing. jelle saldien.

Knee arthroplasty is a surgical procedure that replaces severely arthritic or damaged knee joints. After undergoing this commonly performed procedure, there are still some patients who never fully recover. One of the reasons is the lack of patient compliance to the prescribed rehabilitation schedule.

SEKO is a smart system which has the goal of improving the compliance of patients to the rehabilitation schedule after a knee arthroplasty.

This is done by providing a system which connects a smart brace to a patient and his/her physiotherapist.
