Posture Detection for better public speaking

Initially I felt the best way to quantify the quality of public speaking was through the posture and appearance of the speaker, and thus give feed back. So I had concerned myself with how to detect the shape and position of a body. from this you could instruct the speaker on things like posture, however challenge would be that people are very different shapes and sizes and have a different posture to begin with. Any changes in their posture that may be indicative of a lapse in focus will vary from person to person. Some of the papers I have looked at regarding posture and body position detection:

Human Position/Height Detection Using Analog Type Pyroelectric Sensors
Shinya Okuda, Shigeo Kaneda, and Hirohide Haga

Laser-Based Tracking of Human Position and Orientation Using Parametric Shape Modeling
Dylan F. Glas, Takahiro Miyashita, Hiroshi Ishiguro and Norihiro Hagita

Human posture recognition for intelligent vehicles
Juan P. Wachs • Mathias Kolsch • Deborah Goshorn
