    PersoBalance : A personalised balance assessment in the home

    The objective of this software is to realize a personalized evaluation of the postural balance to be used in home-based rehabilitation, by using portable sensors such as Kinect and wii board. After the one time of identification, the system provide us the personalized estimation of the center of mass (CoM) for the whole body only with Kinect information, through Statically Equivalent Serial Chain method. The first function is the adaptive identification interface for the CoM parameters based on Kalman filter which allows a subject to provide different postures interactively with minimized time length. The second function is the balance measure visualization (stable or instable) based on the identified model for each subject considering subject-specific body differences on the segment mass distribution. Recently, this software was demonstrated at the event of Rencontre Inria-Industrie 13/10/2015 at Bordeaux. It is also filed at Software Catalogue of Inria. PersoBalance is registered with the Agency for the Protection of Programs (APP) and deposited at the BNF (Bibliotheque Nationale de France). Its registration number is Antepedia Deposit 20150710154654.

    Real-time Muscle Deformation via Decoupled Modeling of Solid and Muscle Fiber Mechanics

    [published in MICCAI2014] This paper presents a novel approach for simulating 3D muscle deformations with complex architectures. The approach consists in choosing the best model formulation in terms of computation cost and accuracy, that mixes a volumetric tissue model based on finite element method (3D FEM), a muscle fiber model (Hill contractile 1D element) and a membrane model accounting for aponeurosis tissue (2D FEM). The separate models are mechanically binded using barycentric embeddings. Our approach allows the computation of several fiber directions in one coarse finite element, and thus, strongly decreases the required finite element resolution to predict muscle deformation during contraction. Using surface registration, fibers tracks of specific architecture can be transferred from a template to subject morphology, and then simulated. As a case study, three different architectures are simulated and compared to their equivalent one dimensional Hill wire model simulations.

    Tele-Rehabilitation Platform for Gait Training

    Tele-rehabilitation platform for gait training in intercontinental circumstances is developed under STIC-AmSud program. This CARAT (Computer Aided Rehabilitation Algorithms and Tools) project was joint program 2012-2013 among INRIA France, UnB (University of Brasilia) and PCUP (Pontifical Catholic University of Peru) for tele-rehabilitation framework. This system has two mode: Self-modulation control and Guidance control mode. Guidance control can be performed both with local data transmission and intercontinental data transmission.

    Online Identification and Visualization of the Statically Equivalent Serial Chain via Constrained Kalman Filter

    [published in ICRA2013] To estimate the subject-specific CoM position in the home environment, we make use of a statically equivalent serial chain (SESC) developed with a portable measurement system.In this paper we implement a constrained Kalman filter to achieve an online estimation of the SESC parameters while accounting for the human body's bilateral symmetry. This results in constraining SESC parameters to be consistent with the human skeletal model used. The proposed identification method can inform the subject or the therapist, in real-time, about the quality of the on-going CoM estimation.

    Estimation of the Center of Mass with Kinect and Wii balance board

    [published in IROS2012] Estimation of a subject's center of mass (CoM) is important for the assessment of unsupported, stable standing. A portable, in-home estimation of CoM can be used as a rehabilitation tool and could be achieved using a Microsoft's Kinect with statically equivalent serial chains (SESC). This framework makes it feasible to perform subjectspecific center of mass estimation in the home environment.

    Real-time Volumetric Skeletal Muscle Deformation

    [published in EMBC2012] This video illustrates first trials which implemented Real-time Volumetric Skeletal Muscle Deformation. The idea is making more realistic musculoskeletal simulation from the current approximation of muscle model as wire element to physically and functionally detailed simulation as volumetric element.

    Joint Angle Estimation with Inertial Sensors and its Integration with Kinect

    [published in EMBC2011] This video illustrates first trials which explored the combined use of inertial sensors and Kinect to estimate joint motion for rehabilitation applications. This integration has indeed a great potential due to the complimentary roles both sensing systems feature. In this particular video, accelerometers and gyrometers are used to estimate joint angle, while the Kinect is used for initializing the inertial system and for enabling 3D visualization of the performed task.
