Integration of Motion Capture and EMG data for Classifying the Human Motions
Three dimensional motion capture facility is a powerful tool for quantitative and qualitative assessment of multijoint external movements. Electro-myograph (EMG) signals give the physiologic information of muscles while doing motions. In this paper, our objective is to integrate these two different bio-medical data together and to extract precise and accurate feature information for classifying the human motions. When both forms of data are integrated and analyzed together, the information achieved will be immensely useful to quantify the complex human motions for medical reasons or sport performances. These biological quantifications of biomechanical data, are useful for gait analysis and several orthopedic applications, such as joint mechanics, prosthetic designs, and sports medicines. The different dimensionality reduction approaches such Integral of Absolute value and Weighted Singular Value Decomposition are used to extract the preliminary features from EMG and motion capture da...
