Nativo Mira Esplugues is an active 85-year-old from Delta del Ebro, near Barcelona in Spain. He is recovering after having had a total knee replacement. This is serious surgery, with a long recovery time. Nevertheless the wound is healing nicely, and he was discharged from hospital after just a week.
Normally Mr Esplugues would attend daily physiotherapy sessions. Instead, he is being monitored remotely through an interactive terminal at home.
He accesses the service through a touch screen interface, which shows him what to do.
“The application is no problem, you have only to touch the screen and that’s all. The machine says to you what you have to do,” he says.HEALTH IT
