Design of a female and a male real-time 3D figure for the Kinect app “iStoppFalls”. The aim of the application is to motivate elderly patients to exercise with the help of a serious game in order to reduce their susceptibility to falls in old age.
The patient positions himself in front of the TV or monitor to use the app. Using a Kinect, the patient’s movements are transferred to the virtual figures on the screen. In various exercise categories, which were designed like mini-games, the 3D figures served primarily as visual feedback for the user to check whether the exercises were performed correctly.
For the app (real-time 3D application), a simplified animation rig was created to be compatible with the (relatively simple) rig captured by the Kinect.
