The conceptual 'Adapt' physical therapy system has been designed by Sydney Lang as an at-home solution for amputees to help them perform rehab from the comfort of their living space. The system consists of three elements including interactive foot mat, a versatile support bar and a motion-tracking camera that all work together to support the user in different ways. The mat will guide the user along with the therapy session, while the support bar will offer a way to maintain stability and the camera will relay video to healthcare professionals to monitor progress.
The conceptual 'Adapt' physical therapy system could drastically enhance the ways that patients partake in rehabilitation by bringing essential equipment to them instead of requiring them to visit a clinic.
