Hospital Visits

During my second visit to the Norrlands Hospital I followed Dr. Anna Kallstromer, physiotherapist and I had a chance to observe the exam of a man who have had his hip joint replaced five weeks before. This exam consisted of a routine of really simple movements performed by the patient who was observed all the time by the doctor. The conclusions taken after this session are simple but prove what I was thinking since the start. A product used in such exam must be simple and easy to use but since it is such a controlled environment concerns about super strong fastening systems and placement of possible connection cables can be taken down a notch. Here you can see some quick sketches of the movements performed by the patient:
