Abstract

Current physical rehabilitation techniques can be boring and frustrating for those that need them, especially when they are carried out alone over the long term. Individual, repetitive exercises are also carried out by high performance athletes in sports such as squash. By observing the motivational behaviours used by professional squash coaches, we have analysed coaching styles which will help to inform the design of an autonomous robotic coach capable of increasing adherence to a long term sports or rehabilitation exercise program.
