Abstract

Gézengúz Foundation for Children with Birth Injuries uses the patented hemisphere-like tool, Huple, to improve the balance ability of children with disability. Attaching an integrated 3D orientation sensor, x-IMU to Huple makes possible the objective assessment of the actual movement control of the child sitting in it. This is an important feedback for the therapy. The paper describes in detail the tested movement pattern, the evaluation algorithm and the results of ten children.
