Extreme overweight and obesity are spreading widely like an epidemic. Populations feels the urge for preventive tools and methods to increase people self-awareness and 3D body analysis could be employed to create self-diagnostic methods. We propose a system based on the Microsoft Kinect RGBD sensor to help people to detect weight problems and, possibly, to guide them through improvements in their lifestyle. Our application extrapolates anthropometric measures from the body silhouette and 3D… CONTINUE READING
