Movement can be a key to recovery from injuries, for pathologies and disabilities as well as supporting healthy ageing. Precise execution is fundamental to the expected benefits; easy under the watchful eye of a therapist, but difficult when alone at home. Real-time audio feedback and adding computer gaming elements can provide a quantitative reference and motivation for the correct execution of physiotherapy exercises.

Teodor Ponomariov

Teodor is passionate about astronomical phenomena and sounds. He likes designing and implementing algorithms into his codes, which he is sure that will be a part of a challenging engine one day. He has attained knowledge in spheres of physics, informatics and astronomy, what triggered his passion. His main field of interest is artificial intelligence, where he tends to reflect his gained knowledge. However, he also likes to experiment with sounds on his synthesizers, giving him a break from the daily commotion. He also likes skateboarding and playing bass that make up a part of his life.
