The virtual gym (vGym) is an optional module in the GaitSmart software suite.
This brand-new extention has been developed as part of a Digital Health project combining musculoskeletal modelling, machine-learning and the patient-specific gait-data to provide an optimal set of exercises for rehabilitation. We have used [OpenSim musculoskeletal modelling software] to developed a data base of muscle-activation patterns for typical rehabilitation exercises and a process of modelling patient mobility using our data. A propriety process incorporating machine-learning is used to select exercises that target underactive muscles.
Using vGym adds a list of recommended exercises to a patient's report that are optimised to improve gait scores that are poor or marginal.
