This paper presents a novel method of gait recognition that uses the image and depth sensors of the Microsoft (MS) Kinect to track the skeleton of a moving body and allows for simple human–machine interaction. While video sequences acquired by complex camera systems enable very precise data analyses and motion detection, much simpler technical devices can(More)
BACKGROUND Analysis of gait features provides important information during the treatment of neurological disorders, including Parkinson's disease. It is also used to observe the effects of medication and rehabilitation. The methodology presented in this paper enables the detection of selected gait attributes by Microsoft (MS) Kinect image and depth sensors(More)
Complex continuous wavelet coherence (WTC) can be used for non-stationary signals, such as electroencephalograms. Areas of the WTC with a coherence higher than the calculated optimal threshold were obtained, and the sum of their areas was used as a criterion to differentiate between groups of experienced insight-focused meditators, calm-focused meditators(More)
This paper is devoted to a new method of using Microsoft (MS) Kinect sensors for non-contact monitoring of breathing and heart rate estimation to detect possible medical and neurological disorders. Video sequences of facial features and thorax movements are recorded by MS Kinect image, depth and infrared sensors to enable their time analysis in selected(More)
