Remote Cardiac-Respiratory Physiotherapy.


The problems with cardiac and pulmonary rehabilitation are: (1) the capacity and cost of the programme at the hospitals, and (2) the psychological and physical barriers to attendance by the patients.

For every patient completing a pulmonary rehab programme, their improved health will result in a saving of 4 hospital bed-days (Audit Scotland).

The innovation here firstly aims to serve patients with COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease). 1.2 million people have COPD in the UK alone.

LiveSkin enables patients to follow a rehab programme at home instead of needing to travel. Using LiveSkin, a portable device that attaches to a resistance exercise band with data linked to an app, the patient’s prescribed exercise intensity can be supervised. This will increase uptake of the rehab programmes as well as the number of patients that a physiotherapist can work with.

Rehab at Home.

At the convenience of the patient’s own home, leg extension exercise can be monitored, which mimics the intensity of locomotion. 

Responsive Measurement.

LiveSkin’s latest miniaturised design demonstrates highly responsive data corresponding to the patient’s movement. 

Supervised Strength.

The clinical physiotherapists can tailor the intensity via the app each week. The pressure gauge and the rep count keeps track of target.
