Abstract: Despite the anticipated benefits associated with the use interactive feedback technology, the adoption of these technologies into clinical practice has not yet been widespread. Initial usability studies and anecdotal evidence suggests that interactive feedback technology supports are effective in rehabilitation, yet they dontseem to satisfy the needs or the expectations of clinicians and patients. This paper outlines a proposed approach to the design,development and selection of interactive feedback supports for use in rehabilitation. The proposed process comprises seven stages; 1) Understand the problem, 2) Identify the benefits that a technology support may offer, 3) Devise a modified care pathway,4) Outline the design specification for an interactive technology support, 5) Ascertain whether other solutions exist, 6) Develop interactive feedback technology platform, 7) And finally evaluate.In this paper we outline this approach using orthopaedic rehabilitation as a specific example, however the same basic principles can be applied to many different rehabilitation groups.
