The topic dealt with is about frequency and causes of the neural claudication intermittens among patients of our neurological department as a specific clinical form of lumbosacral disorder syndromes. Concluding special attention is given to diagnostical and therapeutical problems.
A major requirement for effective and interactive sonification in rehabilitation is the availability of a mobile platform. Portable state of the art motion capturing is achieved with inertial sensors. This paper presents a real-time, low latency sonification demonstrator based on an low power consumption ARM Cortex A8 processor, which is designed for mobile… (More)
Sensor fusion is an important computation step for acquiring reliable orientation information from inertial sensors. These sensors are very attractive in order to achieve a mobile capturing of human movements, which is desired for application in sports or rehabilitation. Commercial inertial sensors with small form factors and low power consumption can be… (More)
Objective real-time acoustic feedback of complex movements arises in applications ranging from assisted training in sport to medical rehabilitation. This so called interactive movement sonification enables continuous feedback. Multiple studies have shown the benefit of sonification in movement relearning. Ubiquitous feedback requires a mobile and wearable… (More)
Gross motor impairments are common after stroke, but efficient and motivating therapies for these impairments are scarce. We present an innovative musical sonification therapy, especially designed to retrain patients' gross motor functions. Sonification should motivate patients and provide additional sensory input informing about relative limb position.… (More)
