An objective automated seated bibrachial ice parasport performance evaluation system

Proposed Objectives:
  1. Develop an AMMES that detects and extracts metrics from in situ PHS IMU motion data for biomechanical assessment producing motion and sport-specific information for further objective motion and sport-specific evaluations
  2. Demonstrate the generalization and robustness of AMMES via in situ PIH and ROW data
  3. Gain subjective metrics and performance metrics information of ranked in situ PHS and PIH performance skill levels from human-raters for further objective motion and sport-specific evaluations
  4. Develop an ASPE that uses machine learning to analyze and rank in situ PHS and PIH performance skill levels
  5. Determine key performance metrics for in situ PHS and PIH via machine learning analysis
