     View Summary

    <p>We now have been developing education system for nurses to learn vein puncture using ultrasonography. As a part of the system, we propose two method to estimate position of mockup probe on horizontal plane from single RGB-D camera. One is a method that tracks probe color region robustly using particle filter. The other is a method that searches the best match position between point clouds and given probe contour using ICP algorithm. The experiment that a user imitate probe movement was conducted. The experiment demonstrated that mean of position error on horizontal plane was approximately 1.6 cm using Particle Filter.</p>

     View Summary

    We fabricated a compact, thin weighing sensor device that can be easily attached to the footwear, and estimated the load applied to the foot in daily life. We also tried to clarify the gait where an excessive load occurs and the situation where the high load continues, and the load reduction method and prevention method. We showed the correlation between daily walking of healthy volunteers, in particular the pressure applied to the forefoot. Subsequently, we carried out unrestrained long-time measurement accumulation to find when and where, under what circumstances the large force occurs. Altogether, the method to estimate the force load of the sole forefoot force load was designed, and the validity and reliability were improved. Furthermore, the gait characteristics of diabetic patients were confirmed by simultaneous measurement of force load and leg / foot movement by the examination measurement of diabetic patients' short distance daily walking.
