That develop solutions that facilitate the development of therapy from home are a compelling factor in our social environment. In our country mobile technology is important as a support tool in the rehabilitation of people. This paper presents a proposal that allows the development of an application that helps develop a patient physiotherapy activities, from your home, offering analysis and recommendation of your doctor. The application generates reports of the results of these physical activities both for the patient and the doctor. We integrate an ontological classification of mobile devices and a previous study of the impact of the development of this technology in our country.
