Title: GoNet - A New Movement Dynamic Evaluation System in Real Time
Issue Date: 2015
Abstract: The development of a hybrid solution (hardwareand software) integrating a computer and the Kinect sensor ispresents in this paper. The solution proposed, here called GoNet, isa promising prototype to be used in dynamic and automaticevaluation of biomechanical rehabilitation processes. Experimentaltests concerning the assessment of the range of motion of patients,particularly for elbow flexion, elbow extension, shoulderabduction, shoulder flexion, radial deviation and ulnar deviation,are presented and discussed. Eight healthy subjects were assessedusing GoNet and a goniometer. The intraclass correlationcoefficient (ICC) was used to analyze the reproducibility, and thePearson correlation test was used in the analysis of transversalvalidity. The significance level was defined as equal to 5%. As tothe intra- and inter-examiner reproducibility, high ICC valueswere found for the range of motion of shoulder flexion/extension,shoulder abduction/adduction, radial deviation and ulnardeviation. When evaluated by two experts the correlation betweenthe goniometry and GoNet, significant results were observed forthe amplitude of shoulder flexion/extension (r = 0.74; p = 0.03) andelbow flexion/extension (r = 0.67, p = 0.04). Based on the resultsobtained, GoNet proved to have high reproducibility, except forintraexaminer assessment of elbow flexion/extension. Regardingthe transverse validity, relevant measurement results were foundin terms of flexion/extension of the elbow and shoulder.
