To capture the effects of acute stress on posture and movement as naturally as possible, sub-project D03 uses modern sensor technology, known as “Motion Capture” techniques, to generate kinematic body models. From these models, movement characteristics are extracted and assessed using Artificial Intelligence to understand how individuals respond to acute stress. This provides a better understanding of the impact of stress on the human musculoskeletal system. Here, people gained insights into state-of-the-art sensor technology and interdisciplinary research bridging psychology and engineering sciences.
