3 Overview of Labanotation Like music notes with five line left to right. Develop by Rudolf Laban ( ), Rudolf Laban Rudolf Laban Labanotation has three solid lines bottom up. The movements of each body parts is specified in a designated strip. Like music notes with five line left to right.

5 Movement Direction Symbols UCCS-DCH Project 3/14/2008 FJ/Chow5

6 1 - mini-squats: Muscle group – hips Start standing with equal weight distributed between right and left legs. Place feet shoulder width apart. Keep torso upright, avoid bending at the waist. Slowly lower yourself by bending at the ankles, knees and hips. Return to standing. Start standing with equal weight distributed between right and left legs. Place feet shoulder width apart. Keep torso upright, avoid bending at the waist. Slowly lower yourself by bending at the ankles, knees and hips. Return to standing. UCCS-DCH Project 3/14/2008 6FJ/Chow

7 2 - posterior pelvic tilt: Muscle group - abds, pelvis Start lying supine/ on your back. Bend legs up so both feet are on the supporting surface/ table. Slowly tighten abdominal muscles to flatten your low back into the table. Avoid pushing through your legs Start lying supine/ on your back. Bend legs up so both feet are on the supporting surface/ table. Slowly tighten abdominal muscles to flatten your low back into the table. Avoid pushing through your legs UCCS-DCH Project 3/14/2008 7FJ/Chow

8 3 - Shoulder elevation with rotation: Multiple muscles around the scapula and shoulder Start standing, with right hand/palm placed on the front of the left hip. Slowly, begin to elevate the right upper extremity to shoulder height. At the same time, rotate the right arm outward so the thumb is pointing toward the ceiling. Keep the elbow straight throughout. Lower the arm and return to the start position Start standing, with right hand/palm placed on the front of the left hip. Slowly, begin to elevate the right upper extremity to shoulder height. At the same time, rotate the right arm outward so the thumb is pointing toward the ceiling. Keep the elbow straight throughout. Lower the arm and return to the start position UCCS-DCH Project 3/14/2008 8FJ/Chow

9 4 - standing hip ABD (abduction): Muscle group – hips Start standing with equal weight distributed between the right and left legs. Slowly, shift your weight to the left side. Raise the right leg out to the side ~ 12”. Keep the right foot facing forward. Keep the torso upright and avoid leaning to the side Start standing with equal weight distributed between the right and left legs. Slowly, shift your weight to the left side. Raise the right leg out to the side ~ 12”. Keep the right foot facing forward. Keep the torso upright and avoid leaning to the side UCCS-DCH Project 3/14/2008 9FJ/Chow

10 Observed Laban Encoding Problems 1. mini-squats: Muscle group – hips Place feet shoulder width apart 2. posterior pelvic tilt: Muscle group - abds, pelvis Slowly tighten abdominal muscles to flatten your low back into the table 4. standing hip ABD (abduction): Muscle group – hips Raise the right leg out to the side ~ 12” 1. mini-squats: Muscle group – hips Place feet shoulder width apart 2. posterior pelvic tilt: Muscle group - abds, pelvis Slowly tighten abdominal muscles to flatten your low back into the table 4. standing hip ABD (abduction): Muscle group – hips Raise the right leg out to the side ~ 12” UCCS-DCH Project 3/14/ FJ/Chow

11 Suggest Labanotation Extension Raise the right leg out to the side ~ 12”; UCCS-DCH Project 3/14/ FJ/Chow (a: 12’’)

12 Suggest Labanotation Extension Place feet shoulder width apart; UCCS-DCH Project 3/14/ FJ/Chow (r:w( )) (r:w( ))

13 Suggest Labanotation Extension Slowly tighten abdominal muscles to flatten your low back into the table Solution: express that with contraction symbols Slowly tighten abdominal muscles to flatten your low back into the table Solution: express that with contraction symbols UCCS-DCH Project 3/14/ FJ/Chow ? Which one

14 Potential Future Directions Examine other rehab exercises and improve/customize the labanotation for rehab exercise specification Need Susan Kanal’s help for a common set of rehab exercises. Suggestion? Examine other rehab exercises and improve/customize the labanotation for rehab exercise specification Need Susan Kanal’s help for a common set of rehab exercises. Suggestion?

15 Sensor Tracking Problems How to compare the rehab model specified with labanotation with the sensor tracking data? Approach one: Translate/recognize 3D-time sensor data into labanotation and then compare with rehab model. Approach two: Convert animated rehab model data as 3D-time sequence; then compare directly with 3D-time sensor tracking data.
