Driven by recent advances in information and communications technology, tele-rehabilitation services based on multimedia processing are emerging. Gait analysis is common for many rehabilitation programs, being, for example, periodically performed in the post-stroke recovery assessment. Since current optical diagnostic and patient assessment tools tend to be expensive and not portable, this paper proposes a novel marker-based tracking system using a single depth camera which provides a cost-effective solution that enables tele-rehabilitation services from home and local clinics. The proposed system can simultaneously generate motion patterns even within a complex background using the proposed geometric model-based algorithm and autonomously provide gait analysis results using a customised user-friendly application that facilitates seamless navigation through the captured scene and multi-view video data processing, designed using feedback from practitioners to maximise user experience. The locally processed rehabilitation data can be accessed by cross-platform mobile devices using cloud-based services enabling emerging tele-rehabilitation practices.
