Title (EN) MULTI-AXIS TILT ESTIMATION AND FALL REMEDIATION
(FR) ESTIMATION D'INCLINAISON MULTIAXIALE ET RATTRAPAGE DE CHUTE
Abstract: front page image
(EN)Among other things, a vestibular prosthesis includes a wearable motion sensing system, the motion sensing system generating a motion signal indicative of a motion thereof, wherein the motion includes rotation about two distinct axes; a signal processor in communication with the motion sensing system, the signal processor being configured to generate an estimate of a tilt of the motion sensing system; and an actuator responsive to the estimate of the tilt made by the signal processor.
(FR)L'invention porte sur une prothèse vestibulaire qui comprend, entre autres choses: un système de détection de mouvement portable qui produit un signal de mouvement indiquant un mouvement dudit système, le mouvement comprenant une rotation autour de deux axes distincts; un processeur de signaux en communication avec le système de détection de mouvement, lequel processeur de signaux est configuré pour produire une estimation d'une inclinaison du système de détection de mouvement; et un actionneur sensible à l'estimation de l'inclinaison subie par le processeur de signaux.
