We present a robust sinusoid model that uses skeletal motion data from an Kinect sensor and the Differential Evolution optimization algorithm to dynamically fit sinusoidal curves to derive frequency and depth parameters for cardiopulmonary resuscitation training. It is intended to be part of a robust and easy-to-use feedback system for CPR training, allowing its use for unsupervised training.

I came across a problem today that a dialog window appears (or better: hides) behind the main window in a Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF) application. Consider the following C# code: var mainWindow = new MainWindow(); mainWindow.Show(); var dialog = new DialogWindow(); dialog.ShowDialog(); Window.ShowDialog() deactivates the message loop of the main window so that only the dialog box can be used. However, if you forget to set the owner of the dialog box, the dialog window behind the main window may disappear.
