Project description

This project investigates the feasibilty of the deployment of a prototype myofeedback, teletreatment (i.e. MyoTel) service that enables subjects with neck shoulder complaints to receive personalised adjusted remotely supervised treatment during their daily activities. The myofeedback treatment is based on earlier research showing that subjects with chronic pain have different muscle activation patterns compared to asymptomatic controls.
