Abstract

3D Teleimmersion is emerging as a 3D telepresence platform that enables remote participants to immerse themselves like in a 2D video conference, but in a joint virtual space with a sense of space and time. Distributed remote participants can move around each other, go through each other, operate virtual objects and cooperate on moving, changing and manipulating virtual objects jointly in the same virtual space. This 3D teleimmersive platform promises to lend itself very well to many healthcare applications such as tele-physiotherapy where telepresence, interactivity, depth of movement, and immersion are necessary ingredients for yielding performance gains, such as getting better from the patient and doctor point of view. In this position paper we discuss questions, requirements, and challenges for (a) understanding the first step in tele-physiotherapy, the remote injury assessment activity and (b) understanding the impact of the activity on 3D teleimmersion to be deployed and assist doctors/patients in remote injury assessment activity.
