WT Computer Information Systems student, Randi Ferdian, took 3rd place honors at the Texas A&M University System 11th Annual Pathways Student Research Symposium in Kingsville, TX on November 8th, 2013.  Randi’s research, “Physical Therapy Using a Motion Sensitive Camera” was funded in part by West Texas A&M University’s President’s Undergraduate Research Program in the summer of 2013.  Randi’s work concerns using Microsoft’s Kinect multi-sensor device, typically used for video games and entertainment, do track human motions for purposes of physical therapy.  Randi worked closely with his faculty mentor, Dr. Jeffry Babb, and his industry/practitioner mentor, Patrick Pitre (PT, NTC, CONT), to develop a software system which leverages inexpensive off-the-shelf commodity hardware.  Randi is a senior at WT and is originally from Jakarta, Indonesia.  He is a member of the Tech Club and Economics Club.
