3D Skeletal Motion Tracking Analyzes Rehabilitation Exercises
Since the release of the first version of the KinectTM sensor for the Xbox 360 (Kinect) at the end of 2010, researchers and clinicians have directly felt the possible potential of this device. Many studies have been done in order to validate this device as a markerless system (MLS) for various uses (e.g., motion analysis, posture analysis, feedback during rehabilitation exercises, etc. This system is coupled to rehabilitation exercises, allowing functional evaluation while performing physical rehabilitation. The accessibility of MBS is an issue due to the costs of such systems, and therefore only specialized centers can afford them. There needs to be an accessible motion sensored physical rehabilitation software or program for anyone who may need it to be able to access and utilize.
Extreme Health software provides 3D skeletal motion tracking to analyze patients’ movements as they perform rehabilitation exercises in front of a webcam in real time. The technology improves physiotherapy and rehabilitation for patients and care-givers by enabling patients to conduct their exercise sessions at home on their chosen devices while receiving feedback on the quality of their performance. This data can be used by clinicians to monitor their patients’ progress to provide better care.
