The proportion of rehabilitation doctors and patients mismatch is very grim in the context of social aging. The Family Rehabilitation System captures the profound information of the trainer’s movements through the kinect bone tracing technique, allowing the doctor to remotely master the patient’s training progress. With the help of computers and the Internet, the patient can consult a physician, while the physician can remotely guide and launch the training “prescription” through the Internet according to the training effect. Patients can have rehabilitated training at home. The results of the test showed that the system has a positive effect on the rehabilitation of the patient.
The number of patients with motor dysfunction caused by hemiplegia and stroke increased. In order to promote better recovery of their body muscles, patients are still required to perform rehabilitation exercises in the community or family after the treatment of discharge. However, there are still some difficulties in community rehabilitation for patients with motor dysfunction:
- (1) The number of therapists on-site services is scarce and expensive;
- (2) In the absence of standard and systematic action guidance, the patients ‘ own training is not only the science is not high and the effect is limited.
- (3) Patients need to be trained in special environments such as rehabilitation centers, and wearing complex training equipment is inconvenient for them.
The family rehabilitation system collects the depth information of the trainer’s movements through the Kinect skeletal tracking technique; With the help of computers and the Internet, patients can consult physicians, and the doctor through the Internet remote guidance and open training action “prescription” according to the training effect so that patients at home can be rehabilitation training. This liberated the physician’s labour force and formed a network community that was closely linked to the hospital and regularly received “training prescriptions” to improve patient rehabilitation.

In the article we deal with the rehabilitation of patients using information
technology, especially Internet support. We concentrate on two main areas in the IT
support of rehabilitation: one of them is the support for individual therapy, the other one is providing patients with information, which is the basic step in emphasising individual responsibility. In the development of rehabilitation programmes, the knowledge of the IT professional and the therapist, in the IT support of web guidance, medical expertise plays the primary role. The degree of assistance involved in the rehabilitation process depends on the IT knowledge of medical (general practitioner, nursing staff) professionals as well.
The necessary knowledge required in healing and development processes is imparted to professionals by a special (full-time) university training. It was a huge challenge for us to teach web-based information organisation skills to doctors and nurses, and it is also acomplex task to put forward such an IT viewpoint to information specialists in order to create the foundations of the cooperation between IT and healthcare professionals.

Mental health is a sometimes a taboo topic among most people in the “outside” world. Thankfully, we have the Internet to discuss how we are feeling. If you’re like me, sometimes it’s easier to stay in bed, unshaven, unshowered, barely-dressed, and it’s very difficult to find someone to talk to while in that state. A simple post on an online community may garner a response that motivates you just enough to get up and get out.
It’s okay if you’re hurting, but you don’t have to keep it to yourself. It is important to talk about it. It’s more important to talk with someone face-to-face, but if you need the Internet to get you talking, then you go, Glen Coco.
