At-home therapy exercises are extremely important to patient recovery.
However, these exercises have major problems.
The exercises can be boring and tedious, so patients often don't have the motivation to perform their exercises.
Patients don't have a reliable way of knowing if they're doing the exercises correctly at home, and the therapist has limited quantitative data on patient performance.
Physical and occupational therapy is expensive for patients, and clinics lose significant revenues from no-shows.
