Abstract

“Carpal tunnel syndrome(CTS)” is a disease where the fingers turn numb making it challenging to move the thumb. In this paper, we propose a rehabilitation support system for patients with CTS using a smartphone app. Conventional rehabilitation programs for CTS are often boring and are challenging for medical doctors to observe the patient's condition. In our system, patients play a game using their thumb on the smartphone. Our aim is to maintain their motivation for rehabilitation. Our system transmits the game results to the server in order to share the patient's condition with the medical doctors.
