Abstract

A portable motion replication system for posture guidance of upper extremity is presented in this paper. The system can capture user’s postures, compare the postures with corresponding ones in database, and give the user proper visual and verbal feedback for posture modifying in real time. The experiment of user test shows that the subjects under both visual and verbal feedback have better performance.
