B. Bonnechère, V. Sholukha, F. Moiseev, M. Rooze, Jan S. Van Sint
2013 Games for Health  
This paper presents a new Model-Based Approach (MBA) that has been specially developed for Kinect™ input based on previous validated anatomical and biomechanical studies performed by the authors.  ...  The Kinect™ sensors can be used as cost effective and easy to use Markerless Motion Capture devices. Therefore a wide range of new potential applications are possible.  ...  Conclusion Although the Kinect™ is already used for some limited clinical applications including basic motion assessment or live correction during rehabilitation, the underlying skeleton model is too crude  ...

Using perceptive computing in multiple sclerosis - the Short Maximum Speed Walk test

Janina Behrens, Caspar Pfüller, Sebastian Mansow-Model, Karen Otte, Friedemann Paul, Alexander U Brandt
2014 Journal of NeuroEngineering and Rehabilitation  
We investigated the applicability and feasibility of perceptive computing assisted gait analysis in multiple sclerosis (MS) patients using Microsoft Kinect™.  ...  To detect the maximum walking speed and the degree of spatial sway, we established a computerized and observer-independent measure, which we named Short Maximum Speed Walk (SMSW), and compared it to established  ...  All primary data is write protected and archived under stewardship of the Charité -Universitätsmedizin Berlin's office for Good Clinical Practice. It is available for verification upon request.  ...

Using Kinect™ sensor in observational methods for assessing postures at work

Jose Antonio Diego-Mas, Jorge Alcaide-Marzal
2014 Applied Ergonomics  
Output data were compared with the results provided by human observers, and were used to determine the influence of the sensor view angle relative to the worker.  ...  The camera's point of view relative to the position of the tracked subject significantly affects the correct classification of the postures.  ...  On the other hand, new improved anatomical models are being developed for KinectÔ (Bonnechère et al., 2013b) , and could be used for assessing postural load by other methods.  ...

2018 14th International Workshop on Breast Imaging (IWBI 2018)  
Our anatomic model consists of an array of voxels labeled to denote specific tissue types; the voxel labels are arrayed spatially so as to simulation various anatomic structures.  ...  Preliminary results from a patient study show that CEDBT depicts lesion margins better compared to CEDM, while the contrast-enhancement level for in-plane slice is not as high as in CEDM.  ...  A 15 layer CNN model was constructed to extract features for image classification.  ...

Cable Driven Rehabilitation Robots: Comparison of Applications and Control Strategies

Muhammad Shoaib, Ehsan Asadi, Joono Cheong, Alireza Bab-Hadiashar
2021 IEEE Access  
For each group, target movements are identified, and promising designs of CDRRs are analyzed in terms of types of actuators, controllers and their interactions with human.  ...  In this paper, we categorize and review the cable driven rehabilitation robots in three main groups concerning their applications for upper limb, lower limb, and waist rehabilitation.  ...  The preliminary clinical trial was carried out with a 60 year old patient and reported satisfactory results.  ...

Development and Validation of Novel Methods to Track Three-Dimensional Spine Kinematics During Dynamic Trunk Movements Using a Time-of-Flight RGB-D Camera

Wantuir Carlos Ramos Junior, University, My
RGB-D cameras are a potential inexpensive and less time-intensive motion capture alternative, which have been validated for analyses of gait, postural control, ergonomics, and human anatomy.  ...  However, as manufactured, RGB-D cameras are not ready for specific kinematic analyses, such as lumbar spine motion, as the native artificial intelligence (AI) models do not adequately detect the number  ...  ., "randomized decision forest") to identify anatomical landmarks of a human in images without using markers to locate joint centres, generating a native "skeletal model" for tracking whole-body motion  ...
