We are proposing an interactive demonstration of a prototype of a device that we have built which measures activity including recognising different postures in people with a range of physical abilities.

Participants will be able to wear the device to see if it works as expected, and compare their movement to that of an avatar. We will also be interested to see whether you can fool the device into falsely recognising an activity or posture.

We will provide basic explanations and demonstrations of the hardware, including an accelerometer and gyroscope, and also explain how the AI models were built.
We will also discuss the hopeful future uses of the device and how it may lead to improved hospital outcomes, and ask for your feedback.

At THIS Institute (The Healthcare Improvement Studies Institute), we believe efforts to improve care should always be based on the highest quality evidence. So, we’re boosting research activity to provide more clarity on what works in improving healthcare, what doesn’t, and why.
