Paper discusses challenges rehabilitation professionals have faced in the implementation of mobile wireless telemedicine systems. A focus is placed on the OTELO project, which yielded the creation of a tele-echography system that utilizes an ultralight robot. OTELO is a European Information System Technology-funded project developed in the United Kingdom that consists of a fully integrated mobile system that is used to perform client health evaluations for people in remote locations. The system consists of three main components: (1) an expert site, where a medical professional utilizes an instrument that controls the remote robot and emulates an ultrasound probe, (2) communication software, and (3) a client site, that features the lightweight robot system and its control unit. A technological evaluation of the system is presented.
