Quantifying post-stroke impairment with Kinect
Current methods for assessing post-stroke motor impairment rely on subjective measurements by physical therapists. In order to improve rehabilitation practices and provide more detailed information regarding post stroke motor impairment, objective measurement tools are needed. To address this need, we have developed an algorithm that automatically quantifies post-stroke motor impairment from kinematics recorded by the Kinect sensor. We will show the findings that compare the performance of this algorithm relative to the trained physical therapists.
