This paper introduces a novel tele-physiotherapy platform for supporting physiotherapy over the internet beyond the current manual, dedicated and hospital-based physiotherapy sessions. In particular, we explore the design and development of an integrated platform that supports synchronous and asynchronous physiotherapy collaborations between different users, automated rating of physiotherapy exercises, electronic recording for physiotherapy compliance by patients, and provides a three-dimensional (3D) visual output to feedback and motivate the patients to perform the physiotherapy exercises. It is hoped that that the platform will evolve by getting more feedbacks and reviews from all stakeholders such as the patients, physiotherapists, caregivers and medical professionals to improve patientspsila health state so that they can get back to their active lifestyle as soon as possible and to improve their quality of life.
