Visualising inertial motion sensor data: the design and evaluation of a horse rider assessment interface
This project will design and evaluate an inertial motion sensor (IMU) based screening and feedback tool for the automated postural assessment of horse riders, leveraging data visualisation techniques appropriate for use in the wild. Research will seek to determine an appropriate protocol for the collection of rider postural data, identify the key biomechanical measures required for postural assessment of the rider and select data visualisation techniques that are most appropriate for providing feedback to the user in the wild, taking account of multiple contexts of use. This will provide equestrian practitioners with a computer-based solution to improve consistency and provision of feedback in rider postural analysis.
