This paper will focus on bed angle detection in hospital room automatically using the latest Kinect sensor. The developed system is an ideal application for nursing staff to monitoring the bed status for patient, especially under the situation that the patient is alone. The patient bed is reconstructed from point cloud data using polynomial plane fitting. The analysis to the detected bed angle could help the nursing staff to understand the potential developed hospital acquired infection (HAI) and the health situation of the patient, and acquire informative knowledge of the relation between bed angle and disease recovery to decide appropriate treatment strategy.
