Sarvesh Amberkar, Akshay Bade, Rina Bora, Prithviraj Patil

Abstract


Physiotherapy is a kind of treatment that revolves around the science of movement and aids people by reinstating, rehabilitating, and maximising their physical strength, function, movement, and overall well-being by addressing the underlying issues. Physical therapy management commonly includes prescription or assistance in performing exercises. Physiotherapists work with their patients by preparing fitness programs, developing dietary, and various other lifestyle changes to help their patients recover and prevent the loss of mobility before it occurs by providing services to individuals and populations to improve, keep up, and reinstate maximum mobility and functional ability throughout their lifespan. This includes various services such as providing therapeutic treatment under the circumstances where movement and normal functioning is threatened by various adverse events such as aging, injury, disease, or environmental factors. In this paper, we present an interactive computer vision-based application which with the help of pose estimation will be able to assist any user in performing physiotherapy exercises in the comforts of their own homewhere the patient can perform the exercise anywhere and anytime at his own convenience independently without any human intervention.
