Hand tracking for occupational therapy
The main aim of this project is to investigate the use computer vision techniques to track patient's fingers motion and produce quantitative evaluations of their hand function.
We aim to implement these tools in low cost ubiquitous portable devices, such as smartphones or tablet PCs, so that patients can learn how to perform hand exercises on their own and self-assess their dynamic hand function. Our system will be interactive and indicate if the patient is correctly following the instructions of each exercise. Furthermore, it will transmit motion measurements directly to the therapist.
This project consists of activities in these three main areas:
This project is a collaboration between the Universities of Surrey and São Paulo which has been sponsored by the UGPN (2014) and Surrey-FAPESP (2015-2017) schemes to support exchange visits.
