One of the recent fields of sonification focuses on the sonification of body movements in sports or rehabilitation. This is usually some kind of monitoring of real-time measurement data and auditory feedback for the patient. This paper presents two sonification approaches in medicine: a balancing coordination system and a robot for moving the legs after serious injuries of the lower body parts. These two systems are evaluated and compared based on the method of sonification, and transmission and analysis of the auditory information. Finally, a supposed method for using musical notes and measures is presented, and a selection method for the length of sonification based on the initial time interval is suggested.
