A Wireless Human Motion Capturing System for Home Rehabilitation
—Following the trend of miniature intelligent sensing, wearing small, integrated wireless sensor nodes, such as one with accelerometers and compasses, to capture human body motions may have many applications in medical care and computer animation. In this paper, we demonstrate the use of intelligent sensors to capture human motions for home rehabilitation. We design a game to help a patient to conduct his/her rehabilitation program. For each exercise, the patient is instructed to wear sensors on specified movable body parts. The system will then estimate the quality of the movements and give scores as if it is advised by a therapist. In this way, patients will no longer feel painful and boring as that in traditional rehabilitation, which is typically done in hospitals.
