Care practice in physical therapy consists of in-person sessions combined with an exercise plan for patients to follow. Physical therapists rely on self-reporting and in-clinic observations to assess recovery, but lack reliable measures for between visits. We present a fully realized wearable device that passively captures knee movement data. We discuss how consultation with physical therapists guided the design of this prototype to support the existing patient-provider relationship.
