Kinect ROM Measurement

ROM is usually measured with a goniometer; however, conventional goniometric measurements can vary among testers and require substantial time and effort.Recently, the Kinect markerless three-dimensional depth camera was developed as an interface device.The Kinect obtains a depth image by recognizing the pattern of the infrared points emitted by the projector within it. The depth image is processed to provide coordinates of predefined body segments. This new device enables real-time, 3D motion capture in an easy-to-implement and nonintrusive way. Our product uses the combination of both VR and MS Kinect to create a result that is very accurate. The device is enhanced using two sensors to get data from the player to show them in the VR glass. Subsequently, MS Kinect creates a point cloud to get the position of the player while it updates the position in VR glass, in order for the rehabilitation session to take place safely and with the best results. The Kinect is applied to measure shoulder ROM. We evaluated its validity by calculating the agreement of the measurements obtained using Kinect with those obtained using goniometer.The result showed the Kinect can be used to measure shoulder ROM based on its agreement with goniometric measurements.
