The patient with degenerative spondylolisthesis and stenosis needs a platform for recording daily quality, joint movement, muscle strength, feeling, walking posture and pain records to assist doctors to determine the severity and prescribe treatments. However, there is no platform which can solve this problem yet in the market.


Expected result

To design and develop a telemedicine platform for skeletal, muscular, and nervous system including sensors for motion and muscle endurance, application system, and a cloud information platform. This platform can also assist doctors in diagnosis and assessment by utilizing AI.


Benefits to industry

To commercialize the telemedicine platform and participate in medical exhibitions to get feedbacks for adjusting the system. Moreover, the platform can improve performance of tele-diagnosis for the related patients.
