Today, according to the World Health Organization’s disability reports, they indicate that more than 15% of people worldwide have some disability. This research presents an analysis of the evaluation of accessibility made using ePHoRt, a web-based platform that aims to improve the rehabilitation of patients after hip arthroplasty. To achieve this parameter, so that it is accessible to all, we apply Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.1. This study presents an evaluation of the accessibility of the platform from the physiotherapist’s perspective to achieve an accessible and inclusive site. The results of this research can serve as lessons learned to motivate the developers of the ePHoRt platform towards universal access through the application of WCAG 2.1 throughout the application development cycle.
