Abstract: Introduction: The health care of the Public Health system in Catalonia is collapsed. Presential appointments are scheduled with long waiting times, and there is always a high pressure on emergency care, where up to half of the visits are caused by acute pathologies, either mild or not very urgent. Moreover, it is observed that the Catalan population shows a significant lack of adherence to treatment, especially in post-injury rehabilitation treatment. Objective: to design a digital intervention, using a mobile application, to reduce the saturation of consultations and improve adherence. Methodology: A brief description and evaluation of the main mobile physiotherapy applications has been conducted. Has been designed the way to choose the content of the application, using a co-creative method. The target population and the type of technology to be used have been explained. The basic sections of the app have been proposed, accompanied by wireframes of the application prototype. It is detailed the post-design study, the chronogram, the budget, and the legal requirements to conduct the application, which is called "e-Rehab". Applicability of the intervention: The post-design study seeks to corroborate the potential applicability and functionality of the digital tool. Apart from solving the main problems, "e-Rehab" can have other great benefits, such as reducing costs, empowering patients, and improving therapeutic follow-up Conclusions: The designed intervention is potentially focused on improve treatment adherence and reduce face-to-face visits demand, to users with musculoskeletal injuries.
