Personal Rehabilitation Exercise Assistant with Kinect and Dynamic Time Warping

Chuan-Jun Su

Abstract—Constant rehabilitation exercises at home are usually required for complimenting prescribed exercises executed in a hospital setting and for expediting a patient’s physical recovery. One of the main issues is to provide technological support for making home-based rehabilitation offering similar outcomes to hospital-based rehabilitation with an occupational physician presented. This paper presents our development of a Kinect-based system for ensuring home-based rehabilitation (KHRD) using Dynamic Time Warping (DTW) algorithm and fuzzy logic. The ultimate goal is to offer assistance for patients to conduct home-based rehabilitation without the presence of a physician and to avoid adverse events.

Index Terms—Home-based rehabilitation, kinect, dynamic time warping (DTW) algorithm, fuzzy logic.
