Abstract

The recovery of mobility is one of the most important aspects in the process of walking
again, and it is evidenced that the recovery of muscular activity is one of the main factors,
therefore in every recovery process it is tried to recover the maximum degree the muscles,
one of the methods to perform these tasks, are the rehabilitation exercise activities. In these
activities, certain recovery exercises are carried out that make it possible to regain muscle
mass, in most cases these exercises are usually presented in hospital environments that allow
a minimum time to perform these exercises. The present work presents a practical solution to
be able to exercise at home with emphasis on being able to have an ideal environment and
that eliminates all kinds of fear towards performing exercises, the methodology consists of
being able to develop the exercises based on video games, which the patient try to carry out
the activities of the game, this eliminates any idea of therapy exercise. The methodology also
presents an electromyography signal acquisition unit that aims to record muscle activity, with which we can demonstrate that the muscle is working first and secondly, measure muscle
activity, which would demonstrate that the muscle is in the process of recovery. The results
are presented based on a patient with mobility problems resulting from a knee operation,
where the severity of his condition is evidenced, for which the exercises carried out through
the use of video games help in recovery by eliminating all kinds of fear and achieving
exercises that a therapy exercise session fails to develop.
