This article tackles several problems faced by professionals in physiotherapy: the performance of the rehabilitation exercises by the patients, the control of the course of the illness and the patient's ignorance about whether or not he is properly performing the exercises. We propose a solution based on the use of the Wii Controller to control the exercise movements, along with software that provides the patient with an easy, intuitive and interactive control system. Finally, web services are used to allow the remote monitoring of the treatment by physiotherapy professionals.

It is also moto of Physiotherapy North Ryde to provide them relief with the best possible available technology so that relief is made much accessible and easy for them.
