PhD Thesis

With the aim of equipping technology to address the psychological barriers to physical functioning in chronic pain, I investigated automatic detection of levels of pain and related affective states from fine-grained movement behaviour. My investigation was based on indepth understanding of these psychological barriers and the requirements of technology that aims to address them. One of the major contributions of my work is a taxonomy of bodily expressed pain behaviours and understanding of the feasibility of automatic detection based on this taxonomy. I additionally developed a data-based pain model that challenges the state-of-the-art in pain research. My work also provides tools for further research in pain-related affective computing and chronic pain physical rehabilitation technology design in terms of: 1) a new chronic pain dataset of both exercise and functional movements, 2) features understanding and computation formulae, and 3) low-cost integrated IMU and EMG sensors prototype.
