Since diverse rehabilitation devices for people with disabilities are wired for data processing, they accompany difficulties in terms of spatial use due to complicated installation and configuration. Accordingly in this study, based on cost reduction considering economic feasibility and development of medical engineering technology, an RF communication system was developed to not only transfer various data produced by rehabilitation devices to medical staffs in remote locations but also to directly transmit appropriate exercise prescriptions by rehabilitation experts to rehabilitation devices. In particular using RF transceiver module at ISM frequency band in low power wireless stations, data processing between multiple electric bicycles and one PC was made possible.
