Abstract

This work presents a new system concept for the prevention, diagnosis and interactive treatment of neck pain. It comprises two measurement units worn at the head and the torso, a smartphone/tablet and a medical assistance software. The system aims to provide mobile measurement of full neck movement including rotatory and translatory movements under a patients everyday life circumstances. Multiple features including biofeedback and therapy exercises are intended to be individually configurable according to the specific medical indications of the patient. In addition to the system concept the current implementation state comprising the two measurement units and a visualization app running on a tablet is presented.
