[An analysis of a new method for estimating the range of hand motion using tele-rehabilitation.].

Abstract

We compared estimated axes obtained from the upper arm outline, which changes during movement, with the skeleton axis obtained from an x-ray image in terms of range of motion. Statistical analysis showed that the estimated axes corresponded to the skeleton axis in each range of motion of the hand. The analysis was superior to the conventional approach.
