Engineer Position on VR for Rehabilitation, IRIMAS, Université Haute-Alsace
We have an open research engineer position on virtual reality for rehabilitation movements assessment, at IRIMAS Institute / Université Haute-Alsace.
Virtual Reality Application for Rehabilitation
In the context of neurodegenerative diseases (e.g., Parkinson's), a field of research focusing on physical rehabilitation programs has recently developed. Rehabilitation involves the repetition of certain movements, most often using equipment. Recently, physical rehabilitation programs have integrated tools allowing visual feedback to the patient on the movements he is performing. Among these tools are video screens, robotic interfaces and virtual reality (VR). VR makes it possible to imitate the physical presence of a user, via a 3D avatar, in a real or imaginary world allowing them to evolve in a secure environment. In this context, the REVEIL project (Rehabilitation via a Virtual and Interactive Environment at home) has been proposed to assess the use of a VR application included in a rehabilitation protocol, in addition to the sessions offered by the care center, the Rehabilitation Center of Mulhouse (CRM: https://www.arfp.asso.fr).
In this context, the recruited person will be mainly involved in the development of the VR application. In particular, she/he will work on:
- The clarification and the definition of the specifications in collaboration with researchers and therapists
- The development of the VR application prototype allowing users to evolve within a virtual environment while exercising
- The integration of the interactive part including human motion analysis for assessing exercises performed by patients. For that, recent pose estimation algorithms like BlazePose (https://google.github.io/mediapipe/solutions/pose.html) will be employed
- The setup of first trials in a real-world context in the CRM to validate the feasibility
Applicants must have a Master Degree or Engineering Degree in Computer Science and demonstrate interest/experience in the field of virtual reality. We are looking for a highly autonomous profile with good programming skills (especially in C# and Python). A first experience in virtual reality with Unity 3D and/or human motion analysis would be very welcome.
