Sit to Stand Detection and Analysis

By Sonya Allin and Alex Mihailidis

Abstract

The ability to rise from a chair is a prerequisite for independent ambulation. Difficulty rising from a chair, moreover, is an indicator of balance deficits likely to result in a fall. In this paper we present preliminary work to affordably detect sit to stand strategies associated with balance impairment using web cameras. The long term goal is to create systems that can monitor functional movements that are common at home in a way that reflects changes in stability and impairment
