Using the Kinect to limit abnormal kinematics and compensation strategies during therapy with end effector robots



Using the Kinect to limit abnormal kinematics and compensation strategies during therapy with end effector robots



IEEE .. International Conference on Rehabilitation Robotics 2013: 6650384



Abnormal kinematics and the use of compensation strategies during training limit functional improvement from therapy. The Kinect is a low cost ($100) sensor that does not require any markers to be placed on the user. Integration of this sensor into currently used therapy systems can provide feedback about the user's movement quality, and the use of compensatory strategies to complete tasks. This paper presents a novel technique of adding the Kinect to an end effector robot to limit compensation strategies and to train normal joint coordination during movements with an end effector robot. This methodology has wider implications for other robotic and passively actuated end effector rehabilitation devices.
