Abstract

A web camera based multi-camera convergent close-range photogrammetric system is developed to obtain the neonates' head and facial morphology. The data will then be used to develop a secure and good-fitting eye-patch protector for neonates, particularly when they are exposed to bright lights such as phototherapy light. Measurements obtained by the system are evaluated and validated against data obtained from optical scanning. Results show that the photogrammetric system meets the requirements of measuring accuracy and safety for neonate in the neonatal units.
