Abstract

People with chronic musculoskeletal pain can experience pain-related fear of physical activity and low confidence in their own motor capabilities. These pain-related emotions and thoughts are often communicated through communicative and protective non-verbal behaviours. Studies in clinical psychology have shown that protective behaviours affect well-being not only physically and psychologically, but also socially. These behaviours appear to be used by others to appraise not just a person's physical state but also to make inferences about their personality traits, with protective pain-related behaviour more negatively evaluated than the communicative behaviour. Unfortunately, people with chronic pain may have difficulty in controlling the triggers of protective behaviour and often are not even aware they exhibit such behaviour. New sensing technology capable of detecting such behaviour or its triggers could be used to support rehabilitation in this regard. In this paper we briefly discuss the above issues and present our approach in developing a rehabilitation system.
