Communicationwith user

  • Installation & Implementation
  • Implemented server-based user-interface
  • Conclusion
    • Our system provides better knee rehabilitation – accurate, light weight and cheap
    • Filtering technique to calibrate the data from different sensors
  • Future Work
    • Enhance the accuracy of measuring knee angles
    • Develop ontologies with rules to augment knowledge
    • Improve user interface - smart phone application and better server interface
    • Apply to other joints and new situations
  • Sensor Experiment
    • Scenario: Regularly bends and unbends leg for 10 times (30-40˚ to 120˚)
    • Evaluation: Use of Kalman filter minimizes errors from rapid movement
  • Importance of Knee Rehabilitation
    • Difficult to return to its original state after injury or operation
      • Stable, enduring and customized rehabilitations required
    • Feedback on the health of knee required
      • Accuracy of monitored data is essential for customized knee exercise planand to ensure the overall safety of the knee rehabilitation process
      • Beneficial to both patients and doctors
  • Knee Joint ROM (Range of Motion) Exercise
    • Helpful for knee rehabilitation
    • Criteria for checking the health of knee
  • Activity sensor using WBAN
    • Two-axis accelerometer - less accurate
    • ZigBee used for communication - less popular
  • AKROD (Active Knee Rehabilitation Orthotic Devices)
      • Large size and Heavy (3.18kg); no network functionality
  • Our work
    • Better accuracy - Uses 3-axis accelerometer and gyroscope
    • Popular technology - Uses Bluetooth to communicate
    • Light-weight, less than 400g
  • Knee Rehabilitation Monitoring and Inference System
    • Monitor the knee ROM exercise
      • Maximum/minimum angle, period per ROM activity, moving count, # of sets, …
    • Analyze exercise data
      • How much exercise per day?
    • Infer the health of the knee and recommend changes if necessary
      • Determine if the health of the knee is improving based on measurement data
      • Is more exercise needed, or is current exercise sufficient?
  • Sensors - use two Wiimotes
    • 3-axis MEMS accelerometer (ADXL330)
      • Measuring magnitude and direction
    • 2-axis MEMS gyroscope (IDG-600) in MotionPlus
      • Gyroscope for tracking movement
  • Inference using Ontologies
    • Inferring rules
      • Ability: Evaluating maximum and minimum angles
      • Intensity: Checking the number of sets
  • Design Objectives: Portable, User-friendly and Smart!
  • Sensors installed into knee support
