A Dual Screen Concept for User-Controlled Hypervideo-Based Physiotherapy Training

Abstract

Dual screen concepts for hypervideo-based physiotherapy training are important in healthcare settings, but existing applications often cannot be adapted to personal needs and do not support correct posture. In this paper, we describe the design and implementation of a dual screen application (handheld and TV) that allows patients to view hypervideos designed to help them correctly perform their exercises. This approach lets patients adapt their training to their daily needs and their overall training progress. We evaluated this prototypical implementation in a user test with post-operative care prostate cancer patients. From our results, we derived design recommendations for dual screen physical training hypervideo applications.
