Projects

In this section I’ll show my relevant works in either academic and professional life. Here I’ll present a synopsis from each project, futher information can be found following the links to project page.

FISIO: Intelligent devices for diagnostics and treatment of lumbar pain and other backbone disorders

Prototype I

Prototype I

According to the World Health Organization, more than 80% of world’s population will experiment back pain sometime in life and most of them have no known cause since many factors contribute to its occurrence. Surprisingly, solutions for back pain diagnosis and treatment aid were proposed late in 19th century, and use analogical pressure bags to identify instabilities in patient’s spine during a serie of exercises. In this project, we’re building a series of sensors based on digital accelerometers to not only better measure spine stability, but also to automatically detect the types of movements and show a real-time simulated visualization of the spine, all this freeing the phisician from the responsibility of recording data at the same time.

Vision Blocks

Vision Blocks is a MIT research project which comes to make computer vision accessible to end-users. Delivering computer vision to masses through a web-based framework that empowers users with no programming experience to create customizable vision systems. In vision blocks, users build programs by putting together blocks of algorithms to solve their problems, delivering computer vision at right level abstraction. This project also won the Google App Engine Awards 2012.
