Markerless video and inertial motion capturing for clinical assessments

Master Thesis

Monitoring and quantifying evaluation of functional motion is essential for patients with ankylosing spondylitis (AS), a form of arthritis affecting primarily the spine. Personalisation of quantified measurements allows clinicians to regulate and control drug-based treatment to ease pain in AS patients.

In this MSc.-Thesis / MSc.-Internship, we investigate different technologies, including video-based motion capturing (MC) and inertial measurement sensors (IMUs) to monitor and quantify patients motion according to defined clinical assessment tasks. In a pilot study, in collaboration with the Universitätsklinikum Erlangen, we will evaluate how accurate MC and IMUs can monitor motion differences and subsequently how recovery / progress in AS patients can be estimated and evaluated.

This project combines different technologies and medicine, hence the project is particularly suited for students in the medical engineering (Medizintechnik) curriculum.
