Title
(EN) MUSCULOSKELETAL ACTIVITY RECOGNITION SYSTEM AND METHOD
(FR) SYSTÈME ET PROCÉDÉ DE RECONNAISSANCE D'ACTIVITÉ MUSCULO-SQUELETTIQUE
Abstract
(EN)
A muscle activity and skeletal monitoring system and method are disclosed. A network of at least two distributed inertial sensor nodes are configured to communicate with each other over a first interface. Each of the inertial sensor nodes comprises at least one sensor configured to sense muscle vibrations and monitor body motion. A muscle activity recognition and motion tracking and visualization methods also are disclosed.
(FR)
L'invention concerne un système et un procédé de suivi d'activité musculaire et squelettique. Un réseau d'au moins deux nœuds de capteur inertiel distribués sont configurés pour communiquer l'un avec l'autre via une première interface. Chacun des nœuds de capteur inertiel comprend au moins un capteur configuré pour détecter des vibrations musculaires et suivre un mouvement corporel. Des procédés de reconnaissance d'activité musculaire et de poursuite et de visualisation de mouvement sont également décrits.
