Paper Abstract

These studies aim to evaluate respiratory muscle authors have developed a real time system for function in childhood by observing regional capturing dynamic pictures of the breathing cycle of motions of the body surface during breathing. The patients using a pair of video-cameras, a two stereophotogrammetric analysis of biological forms channel split screen vision controller and a video- in medicine has been usefully employed for many cassette recorder with digital storage and effects, all years. Generally the methods previously adopted mounted on a custom built hospital cot. The have involved the measurement of conventional images to be measured are selected by viewing the photographs in comparators. Although these split screen in dynamic stereoscopic mode and methods have proved successful, the procedures are selected images are captured on an IBM personal very time consuming and this severely restricts computer equipped with video frame grabbers. their application to physiologic studies. The images to be measured are selected by viewing the split screen in dynamic stereoscopic mode and selected images are captured on an IBM personal computer equipped with video fram grabbers.
