Seed project: Developing the Skeleton Avatar camera Technique (SAT) as a rapid, valid and sensitive measurement of mobility in elderly persons

The main objective for this seed project within Linnaeus University Centre for Data Intensive Sciences and Applications (DISA) was to explore how 3D image visualization with the Skeleton Avatar Technique of movement patterns could be viable and supportive for mobility assessment in elderly persons in general, but also for patients with complex care needs treated e.g. in primary care.

What is a seed project?

A seed project is a minor project funded by a knowledge environment or a research group at the university. The aim is to launch and promote excellent research. Depending on the financier, a seed project may be to idenfify new or deepen existing collaborations, preferably cross-disciplinary ones, to explore possible research issues in a feasibility study, to collect empirical material, or to write an application for external funding.
