Abstract

An extensive amount of medical data is recorded daily from patients with walking difficulties. Due to the volume and segmentation of derived data, it is becoming increasingly difficult for health professionals to interpret the collected data and diagnose the patient’s condition. The current 2D mode of interaction constrains the users’ ability to obtain information in a clear and timely manner. As such it is deemed essential to develop an automated system that can extract, store and visualise in 3D the data from different sources, in order to improve 3D mental mapping, increase productivity and consequently ameliorate quality of service and management. In particular, the proposed system offers simulation capacity and Virtual-Reality visualisation experience which enhances the gait analysis process. Overall this work is concerned with the development of interactive information-visualisation software that assists medical practitioners to simplify and enhance the retrieval, visualisation and analysis of data.
