Rising Orthopedic Problems and Novel Home-Based Antidotes


Objectives: Today the health problems are increasing at an exponential rate due to our sedentary lifestyle and the nature of job. These problems are of varied nature, viz. respiratory, cardiac, muscular (or bones) etc. In this paper, we are developing an application to provide orthopedic recommendations to the users based on their activity status recorded from wearable device and to prescribe nutritional diet based on the symptoms observed in the people of different age groups. Statistical Analysis: Initially the activity status of wearable device users is stored in the android application and then, primary data is collected for the study using semi-structured questionnaire and in-depth interview with the senior orthopedician. Findings: We recommend customized novel home-based antidotes as immediate remedies to relieve the peoples’ pain. These heath care solutions are provided to the users of the application based either on their observed symptoms or on their age. The orthopedic recommendations are provided in the form of physical activities according to the age of individuals, while dietary solutions are prescribed based upon the user’s symptoms. Thus, our application adds value to the existing systems in such a way that it serves dual purposes, viz. general diet recommendations and orthopedic solutions in particular. Application: These recommendations, in general are precautionary measures. In future, the application should also cover endocrinal and respiratory disorders and must provide curative measures in the form of first-aid solution for all the covered health problems.
