Salomie, “A Physiotheraphy Coaching System based on Kinect Sensor,” 2020 IEEE 16th International Conference on Intelligent Computer Communication and Processing (ICCP), Cluj-Napoca, Romania, 2020, pp. 535-540, doi: 10.1109/ICCP51029.2020.9266178.
This paper addresses the issue of performing physiotherapy treatments remote, at home, by proposing a personal coaching system capable of surveilling the correctness of the exercises and the adherence to the rehabilitation program established by doctors. For identifying the performed exercises, we use a Microsoft Kinect Sensor on top of which we have developed an exercise-detection algorithm part of a recognition module and a user-friendly web interface. The results show that the proposed solution can be successfully used for performing remote physiotherapy exercises, guided by physiotherapists, which brings a major advantage in scenarios as the one brought by the SARS-CoV-2 (COVID19) context.
