Seminar/Thesis: 3D modeling of human spine motion from wearables
Monitoring and quantifying functional motion is essential for many clinical applications and disease pattern e.g., infectious spine diseases. Different measurement techniques ranging from manual assessment over Motion Capturing Systems (MoCap) and inertial measurement units (IMUs) are used to capture, quantify and score the motion. Whereas established MoCap Systems produce relatively easy some form of representation (stick figure) and angle measurements, IMUs work in a different manner, which makes them more complex to visualize and analyze a multi-segment movement.
In this seminar/thesis, we will systematically explore and review 3D modeling techniques/ tools to visualize the spine motion of a standardized human skeleton/stick figure/wire frame, from relative sensor localizations (multiple inertial measurement (IMU) sensors). Depending on the project level (seminar project/BA/MA) the project/thesis will comprise of tool evaluation, to proposing a solution for a working model that allows for personalization.
