To develop virtual rehabilitation system with data glove and create task-oriented rehabilitation exercises in the virtual environment, we need to 1) calibrate 5DT data glove with Intersense IS-900 motion tracker, 2) create 3D upper limb model with 3D modeling tools, 3) animate the upper limb using skeleton-driven mesh deformation with OSG-VRjuggler, 4) investigate collision detection method and handle the collision between rigid and deformable object in OSG.
Aforementioned basic technologies have been used to create touching, reaching, grasping and moving rehabilitation exercises in daily living environment. The objective of this summer research is to develop the essential technology and software tools that can be used to develop more advanced rehabilitation tasks.
