Is the Kinect v2 better suitable as an instrument for the analysis of the single leg squat compared to 2D video analysis using the methodology of Dingenen. Can data produced by the Kinect v2 be used for predicting the occurrence of knee injuries in the population of students of the Academy of Physical Education.

Chair Stance study

Master Specialized Physical Therapy in geriatrics, Avans+ university of applied sciences

What are the factors that determine whether a frail elderly can get up from a chair. What are the most important predictors for being able to rise from the chair. This study uses the center of mass projection and angle measurement during the sit to stand movement.
