Physiotherapy and new advances in body measurement webinar
Online Zoom Webinar
This webinar is aimed at Physiotherapy and Rehab businesses with an interest in developing their practice through awareness and potential future adoption of new digital techniques for body, body segment, and movement measurement.
3D imaging technology has opened up the potential for fast, accurate, and automatic measurement of the human body. The combination of low-cost imaging depth cameras and developments in computer vision techniques has brought such technologies within reach of a wider audience. We will discuss some of the work and projects we have done in this area. We will also present our work on pioneering new and novel ways of human body measurement that account for the shape of the human body as well as its size.
In recent years markerless 3D body tracking techniques have advanced how posture and movement can be assessed whilst minimising intrusion to the patient or performer. This potentially liberates practitioners from the restrictions of expensive specialist laboratories for accurate movement measurements. We will present and discuss a range of markerless application-specific tools we have developed using OpenPose that can assess human movement in sport and healthcare settings.
The webinar will also provide a brief overview of two R&D funding programmes at SHU that support business innovations in the region and may be of interest. These are the Sheffield Innovation Programme (SIP), and Grow Med Tech.
