Riassunto analitico
The aim of the present work of thesis is to develop a digital application, which includes a rehabilitation protocol for the treatment of Shoulder Im- pingement Syndrome (SIS) and a standard shoulder evaluation test to check the actual functional level and the progress achieved through training. The use of a wearable sensing technology will permit accurate and reliable mea- surements of the shoulder motion parameters, which can be delivered to clinicians in order to supervise the rehabilitation activities, to avoid injuries due to improperly performed exercise. A clear, familiar and usable graphic user interface (GUI) will allow physicians to adjust and optimize the training protocol, in terms of type, duration and intensity of the exercises, enabling to take into account the progress and the specific needs and goals of the patient. The final purpose is to facilitate the functional recovery and maintenance of the physical level gained through the rehabilitation program, allowing for a complete return to sport and activity.
