The enhancement of ubiquitous and pervasive computing brings new perspectives in terms of medical rehabilitations. In that sense, the present study proposes a Web-based platform to promote the reeducation of patients after hip replacement surgery. This project focuses on two fundamental aspects in the development of a suitable telerehabilitation application, which are: (i) being based on an affordable technology and (ii) providing the patients with a real-time assessment of the correctness of their movements. A comparative test shows that the movement's evaluation carried out by therapists is consistent with the output of the automatic assessment module. Improvements of the algorithm are discussed, in order to increase the accuracy and depth of the analysis.
