Applications of inertial measurement units in monitoring rehabilitation progress of arm in stroke survivors
MetadataShow full item record
Constraint Induced Movement Therapy (CIMT) has been clinically proven to be effective in restoring functional abilities of the affected arm among stroke survivors. Current CIMT delivery method lacks a robust technique to monitor rehabilitation progress, which results in increasing costs of stroke related health care. Recent advances in the design and manufacturing of Micro Electro Mechanical System (MEMS) inertial sensors have enabled tracking human motions reliably and accurately. This thesis presents three algorithms that enable monitoring of arm movements during CIMT by means of MEMS inertial ...
