Abstract: Community center-based occupational therapists (OTs) working with a large number of patients daily often have difficulties tracking and recording patient progress, and ensuring patients are motivated and performing exercises correctly. Rather than simply introducing new technologies to address these problems, we propose low-cost hacking of existing equipment available at these centers. This approach is philosophically consistent with the creative, pragmatic approach OTs take in their work, and is likely to lead to better acceptance without sacrificing the quality of the exercises. To illustrate our approach, we modify two existing training devices with simple digital interaction in order to nudge patients to improve movement quality, and to collect data to track progress. We present our preliminary results when employing these modified devices at a community center.
