Vision-based approach for long-term mobility monitoring: Single case study following total hip replacement

Elham Dolatabadi, MSc, et al.

This article presents a single-case study on the feasibility of using a low-cost and portable tool to monitor balance and mobility parameters before and after a surgery. Two different functional tasks—walking and sit-to-stand—were recorded with a Kinect sensor in the home and custom-made algorithms were developed to process the recorded tasks. This study has significant value for adults with either mobility limitation or balance problem after age-related incidents or any physical injuries. It will promote positive and supportive care through reducing fall risk and clinic visits and maximizing independence.
