Abstract

We present work-in-progress on framework for 3D Kinect-based remote motion and function assessment. Tele-MFAsT facilities streaming of data (video, depth, skeleton, and audio) from network-connected Microsoft Kinect cameras that can be utilized to observe a patient remotely during function assessment by a physician or therapist, measure motion trajectories, and joint angles, while taking advantage of tele-presence in a 3D virtual environment. The network architecture also allows for integration with wireless sensors in the future. In this paper we describe Tele-MFAsT application for upper-body range of motion measurements.
