I hope you find this post in best of your health and spirit!!
Let me explain you about the software.
There will be three main aspects of this software.
1) Static posture analysis
2) Dynamic Posture analysis
3) Body composition analysis
let me explain you in detail..
1) Static posture analysis - we will take total 4 photos of a patient from all 4 direction i.e. front / back / and 2 sides. then we will analyse there posture using lines. We will be using an image analysis tools to do this for example putting a grid in front of the photo, joining two points and checking an angle, checking shape of the knees by connecting hip-knee-ankle via line etc.
2) Dynamic posture analysis - We will ask patient to walk on the treadmill. We will record their walk using cameras at different angle. will upload that video in the software. and using on screen analysis tool we can measure the angles, deformities etc.
3)Body Composition analysis - I will be asking patients different questions to take their history, then we will take some measurements on their body i.e. length, breadth, circumference and skin-folds. using these measurements we need to calculate different things. i.e. Recommended height, recommended weight, Body mass index (BMI), Age Percentile, Waist to hip ratio, fat percentage, fat free mass, somatotype, BMR, RMR, Carbohydrate / protein / fats / water requirement.
I will give you all the formulas to calculate above things.
Using this all data we need to print a report. This is what we need to develop.
Please let me know what do you think.
