The babyPose Dataset

This dataset has data relevant to preterm infants' movement monitoring with videos acquired in neonatal intensive care units (NICUs). The data consists of 27 depth videos acquired in the NICU of the G. Salesi Hospital in Ancona, recorded during the actual clinical practice. Each video consists of 1000 frames (i.e., 100s). Each frame was annotated with the limb-joint location. Twelve joints were annotated, i.e., left and right shoul- der, elbow, wrist, hip, knee and ankle. This dataset represents a unique resource for artificial intelligence researchers that want to develop algorithms to provide healthcare professionals working in NICUs with decision support. Hence, the babyPose dataset is the first annotated dataset of depth images relevant to preterm infants' movement analysis.
