Structuring and standardization of rehabilitation

In recent years, new treatment methods such as robotic therapy have been studied in the field of rehabilitation medicine. Conventional therapy is often used as a comparison target to judge the effectiveness of new treatments. However, the meaning of the term "conventional training" is ambiguous, and its content, time, and sequence are not often defined. In general, information of the amount of time of the training that is performed (such as the number of hours of training) is provided, and there are no details on the contents of training. To verify the effectiveness of a new treatment method compared to “conventional training”, it is important to analyze the “conventional training” content in detail.

To quantify and visualize the training contents, we have recorded a log of the training contents every 5 minutes (Project of Exercise Log for FHUR [ELF] project). The purpose of this project is to develop an exercise log, a database system that explicitly records and collects training contents, time, and order of implementation for physical therapy, occupational therapy, and speech-language-hearing therapy. The goal of this project is to develop a method for clarifying training and optimizing the contents, time, and order of training.

Visualization of training contents of patients using ELF

The changes in the contents of physical therapies during hospitalization of a patient with hemiplegic stroke is clearly shown with ELF.

Percentage of training contents during hospitalization

It is also possible to visualize the type and amount of training that was performed during hospitalization in the acute care wards and Kaifukuki rehabilitation wards.
