A programmable system (PS) for robot-assisted mechanotherapy was developed for the rehabilitation of patients with diseases and traumas to the hip and knee joints. The medical device developed here differs from analogs in providing programming for remote control over the individual rehabilitation process in remote access conditions. Telemetric data recorded during rehabilitation training are stored in a remote information base for subsequent automated analysis, which provides for assessment of the effectiveness of the rehabilitation process and introduction of corrections to the rehabilitation program initially formulated for each patient. The interface of the information system is intuitive and does not require the user to have experience in working with personal computers.
