Abstract

RehApp is a scalable, wireless haptic system for rehabilitation and sports training. In this paper, we first present related work in the field of wearable haptic systems for rehabilitation and sports activities. The design and implementation of the RehApp system is described next. We conclude the paper with future work planned for this demonstration system.
