Unobtrusive Monitoring of Home-Based Post-Stroke Rehabilitation Exercises Using Heterogeneous Sensors.

Research output: Contribution to conferenceAbstract

Abstract

This paper proposes the use of heterogeneous sensors to unobtrusively monitor post-stroke rehabilitation exercises in a home environment. Rehabilitation exercises at home help post-stroke sufferers to avoid long queues at health facilities and transportation problems associated with visiting these facilities. Experimental results demonstrated the ability to capture postures from a Heimann HTPA 32x32 thermal sensor, and speed and range during hand-stretching and gait-retraining exercises from a D2G Doppler radar sensor. Plans for future work are also outlined.
