Stud Health Technol Inform. 2019 Aug 21;264:1931-1932. doi: 10.3233/SHTI190719.


This poster presents the design of a connected system for telerehabilitation for patients with obesity and the assessment of the system through a randomized qualitative study on a sample of 15 patients. The patients expressed positive motivation but negatively assessed (as a deficiency) the system operation. All patients found that the system was neither intuitive nor easy to use.
