himo – health in motion


Introducing HIMO, a software designed to revolutionize the physiotherapy experience for children with flat foot. Understanding the difficulties of  parents and therapists, HIMO combines physiotherapy exercises with the excitement of video games, making the therapeutic process enjoyable and effective.

At the core of HIMO is its integration of therapeutic exercises with captivating video games. By analyzing the video stream, the mobile app intelligently detects and guides children through the prescribed exercises. HIMO app can function independently, allowing users to follow a set sequence of exercises, with the app providing audio feedback on correct execution.

For a truly immersive experience, the HIMO app can also be connected to a specially designed video game. In this mode, the app sends control signals for every correctly executed exercise, creating a seamless connection between physical therapy and gaming.

The video game within HIMO is carefully tailored to meet the specific needs of the aimed use case. It strikes the perfect balance between simplicity and engagement, while fits to the slower movements of the feet (comparing with the hands). Instead of punishing players, the game rewards their efforts, motivating them to continue with their exercises.

The heart of HIMO lies in its ability to transform physiotherapy from a mundane activity into a delightful adventure. By merging playfulness with therapeutic exercises, we have crafted an experience that not only captures children’s imaginations but also accelerates their progress towards improved foot health.

This project has received funding from DIGI-B-CUBE voucher framework which has been supported by the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 824920.
