Hand washing preparation can be considered as one of the main strategies for reducing the risk of surgical site contamination and thus the infections risks. Within this context, in this paper we propose an embedded system able to automatically analyze, in real-time, the sequence of images acquired by a depth camera to evaluate the quality of the handwashing procedure. In particular, the designed system runs on an NVIDIA Jetson NanoTM computing platform. We adopt a convolutional neural network, followed by a majority voting scheme, to classify the movement of the worker according to one of the ten gestures defined by the World Health Organization. To test the proposed system, we collect a dataset built by 74 different video sequences. The results achieved on this dataset confirm the effectiveness of the proposed approach.

Abstract

Hand washing preparation can be considered as one of the main strategies for reducing the risk of surgical site contamination and thus the infections risks. Within this context, in this paper we propose an embedded system able to automatically analyze, in real-time, the sequence of images acquired by a depth camera to evaluate the quality of the handwashing procedure. In particular, the designed system runs on an NVIDIA Jetson NanoTM computing platform. We adopt a convolutional neural network, followed by a majority voting scheme, to classify the movement of the worker according to one of the ten gestures defined by the World Health Organization. To test the proposed system, we collect a dataset built by 74 different video sequences. The results achieved on this dataset confirm the effectiveness of the proposed approach.
