AmbiGate Solutions: Back Rehab with 3D-supported therapy system

With its 3D camera based movement therapy system, AmbiGate helps to alleviate or at least completely avoid back problems. To this end, the researchers have developed a virtual trainer that shows exercises and motivates them to follow suit. If an exercise is repeated incorrectly, the system intervenes in real time. Using specially developed algorithms, it measures the progress of the exercise participant.

So that the motivation to perform the back exercises is not lost, the researchers and developers of AmbiGate have integrated the exercises into small games. Users then use the exercises to control the games and playfully reach goals.
