Multivariate Analysis of Joint Motion Data by Kinect: Application to Parkinson's Disease.
Artigo em Inglês | MEDLINE | ID: mdl-31751278
Analysis of joint motion data (AJMD) by Kinect, such as velocity, has been widely used in many research fields, many of which focused on how one joint moves with another, namely bivariate AJMD. However, these studies might not accurately reflect the motor symptoms in patients. The human body can be divided into six widely accepted parts (head, trunk and four limbs), which are interrelated and interact with each other. Therefore, in this study we attempted to investigate how the major joints of one body part move with the ones in another body part, namely multivariate AJMD. For method illustration, the motion data of sit-to-stand-to-sit for healthy participants and people with Parkinson disease (PD) were employed. Four types of multivariate AJMD were investigated by eigenspace-maximal-information-canonical-correlation-analysis, which obtained maximal-information-eigen-coefficients (MIECes), the parameters for quantifying the correlation between two sets of joints located in two different body parts. The results show that healthy participants have significantly higher MIECes than the PD patients (p-value < 0.0001). Furthermore, the area under the receiver operating characteristic curve value for the classification between healthy participants and PD patients reaches up to 1.00. In conclusion, we demonstrated the possibility of using multivariate AJMD for motion feature extraction, which may be helpful for medical research and engineering.
