The idea of “Physical Exercises (PEs) homework” has been introduced to encourage children and potential young athletes to stay physically active outside of classroom and to keep up with training. However, it is not practical to assume all parents are willingly and responsible enough to supervise home PE sessions. To turn the concept of managed PE homework into a reality, an automated solution is needed to address the lack of supervision problem. This paper presents a novel managed exercise monitoring application - that uses wireless on-body inertial sensor to record, analyse and assess the quality of the exercises carried out by a subject – to address the supervision problem. By automating the system, parents are neither required to participate with, nor to supervise the child during the entire home PE session. Such arrangements are in placed to improve the practicability of the PE homework concept.
