In Proceedings of the 2020 Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) International joint conference on neural networks (IEEE IJCNN 2020), part of the 2020 IEEE World congress on computational intelligence (IEEE WCCI 2020) and co-located with the 2020 IEEE congress on evolutionary computation (IEEE CEC 2020) and the 2020 IEEE International fuzzy systems conference (FUZZ-IEEE 2020), 19-24 July 2020, [virtual conference]. Piscataway: IEEE [online], article ID 9206941. Available from: https://doi.org/10.1109/IJCNN48605.2020.9206941

Exercise adherence is a key component of digital behaviour change interventions for the self-management of musculoskeletal pain. Automated monitoring of exercise adherence requires sensors that can capture patients performing exercises and Machine Le...

Learning to compare with few data for personalised human activity recognition. (2020)
Conference Proceeding
WIRATUNGA, N., WIJEKOON, A. and COOPER, K. 2020. Learning to compare with few data for personalised human activity recognition. In Watson, I and Weber, R. (eds.) Case-based reasoning research and development: proceedings of the 28th International conference on case-based reasoning research and development (ICCBR 2020), 8-12 June 2020, Salamanca, Spain [virtual conference]. Lecture notes in computer science, 12311. Cham: Springer [online], pages 3-14. Available from: https://doi.org/10.1007/978-3-030-58342-2_1

Recent advances in meta-learning provides interesting opportunities for CBR research, in similarity learning, case comparison and personalised recommendations. Rather than learning a single model for a specific task, meta-learners adopt a generalist... Read More about Learning to compare with few data for personalised human activity recognition..

Usability and acceptability of an app (SELFBACK) to support self-management of low back pain: mixed methods study. (2020)
Journal Article
NORDSTOGA, A.L., BACH, K., SANI, S., WIRATUNGA, N., MORK, P.J., VILLUMSEN, M. and COOPER, K. 2020. Usability and acceptability of an app (SELFBACK) to support self-management of low back pain: mixed methods study. JMIR rehabilitation and assistive technologies [online], 7(2), article number e18729. Available from: https://doi.org/10.2196/18729

Self-management is the key recommendation for managing non-specific low back pain (LBP). However, there are well-documented barriers to self-management, therefore methods of facilitating adherence are required. Smartphone apps are increasingly being...

Personalised exercise recognition towards improved self-management of musculoskeletal disorders. (2021)
Thesis
WIJEKOON, A. 2021. Personalised exercise recognition towards improved self-management of musculoskeletal disorders. Robert Gordon University, PhD thesis. Hosted on OpenAIR [online]. Available from: https://doi.org/10.48526/rgu-wt-1358224

Musculoskeletal Disorders (MSD) have been the primary contributor to the global disease burden, with increased years lived with disability. Such chronic conditions require self-management, typically in the form of maintaining an active lifestyle whil...
