Rebound aims to prevent muscle wasting in hospitalized patients by integrating in-bed exercises into the early stages of rehabilitation; utilizing a period of inactivity for productive exercise to facilitate early mobilization. It utilizes the elastic potential energy of elastic bands to facilitate repetition of motion in exercises, thus providing support for patients with muscle weakness. Furthermore, by increasing the physical activity of hospitalized patients.
An in-built digital counter paired with a mobile application records patients’ rehabilitation progress, providing a target-oriented exercise regime to engage and motivate patients, while also streamlining the manual logging process of patients’ records for physiotherapists.
