  • SoC-based Architecture for Robotic Prosthetics Control Using Surface Electromyography

    Over the past few years, surface electromyography (sEMG) controlled prosthetics have served many amputees or partially paralyzed subjects. Although the control accuracy and efficiency of such prosthetics have been widely focused, the extendibility in practical scenario is still quite limited, and many kinds of such prosthetics have only several fixed specific functions. Considering the requirements of improving the extendibility and flexibility of the prosthetics, in this paper, we proposed a novel System on Chip (SoC) architecture for the manipulation of sEMG controlled robotic prosthetics. By implementing on Xilinx Zynq FPGA platform, this system fulfills a flexible and economic resources and power consumption design. Within the workflow, firstly, several sEMG features including mean absolute value (MAV), waveform length (WL) and zero crossing rate (ZC) are extracted real time. Then, different movements of arm and hand are identified by a Naive Bayes classifier. Final control commands are transmitted to a humanoid robotic arm to finish specific arm/hand movements. In real time experiments, we successfully control a robotic prosthetics to complete all prescriptive tasks. The results confirm our design and implementation, and also indicate that the proposed SoC architecture is highly flexible and low-cost for the prototype design of sEMG controlled prosthetics.

  • Control of an actuator in the motion prosthetics device by signals of biological nervous system

    The problem of realization of interaction of an actuator with nervous system of a live organism in devices of motion prosthetics is described. The signal of a nervous cell, ways of coding of information in it and problems of modelling of these processes is considered by mathematical methods and means of the personal computer. Processing, storages and information transfers by spiking neuron and network on their basis, and also studying of the basic principles of functioning of a neural cage where the electric impulse is used for coding and information transfer is analysed. The possibility of creation of the encoder of information for signalling, registered by means of a superficial electromyography or directly invasive way, to an actuator of a bionic artificial limb on the basis of spiking neural network is considered. Realization of such system on FPGA is proved.

  • Low power recording and digitizing circuits for neural prosthetics

    Significant progress has been made in the field of neural prosthetics lately. In order to improve and invent novel wearable and implantable devices, low power consumption is one of the most important concerns. This article discusses low power circuits which are designed, fabricated and tested in our lab which are essential building blocks for neural prosthetics. The circuits include a nano-power current conveyor which senses picoscale to microscale current which corresponds to micro molar neurotransmitter concentration; a nano-power neural amplifier for action potential (AP) detection and amplification and a micro-power ΣΔ analog to digital convertor (ADC) to convert the analog signal (AP or neurotransmitter concentration) to digital codes. These circuits are fabricated in CMOS 0.18 μ technology and tested using recorded signals from posterior parietal cortex of a macaque monkey in our lab.

  • Control of medical robotics and neurorobotic prosthetics by noninvasive Brain-Robot Interfaces via EEG and RFID technology

    Brain-robot interface (BRI) has been a growing field of innovative research and development in cognitive neuroscience and brain bioimaging processing technologies. In this paper we endeavor to explore how medical robotics and neurorobotic prosthetics can be controlled by Brain-Robot Interfaces and RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) technologies, directly using brain signals obtained non- invasively from the scalp through electroencephalography (EEG) in order to assist disabled patients to ameliorate their everyday lives. There is a general consensus that computational visualizations and interfaces are proliferating in every aspect of medical practice, prompted from the current trends in telemedicine. The main focus of the study is on architectures of Brain-robot interfaces for communication and control using one specific modality, namely electroencephalography (EEG), alpha (a) wave-based BRI with an emphasis on biosignal processing aspects. The main motivation for the application of such scientific methods is the development of an alternative communication and control means for severely disabled people, focusing in replacing total voluntary muscle control using robotic prosthetics. The substantial goal is to demonstrate that an EEG- based brain-robot interface can be used for sophisticated robotic interaction with the environment, involving not only navigation as in previous applications but also manipulation and transport of objects. Visualization of brain electrical activity and BRI technology, by their intimate connection with the wonder of human thought processes, are a fascinating research field, that has demonstrated the unprecedented ability of direct information transfer from the brain to medical robots or robotic prosthetics. Inclusion of a BRI in a multimodal interface thus results in a net gain of information transfer capability that alters the standards in medical robotics.

  • Signal Processing in Next-Generation Prosthetics [Special Reports]

    Artificial devices that allow amputees to either walk again or to continue to use an arm and hand have existed since ancient times, the most notable example being the simple peg leg. Modern prosthetics, however, are a world apart from predigital-age artificial limbs. Using advanced robotic, cybernetic, and fabrication technologies, as well as signal processing, researchers are well on their way to making prosthetics that are remarkably useful, realistic, and intuitive.

  • Stress and displacement analysis of dental implant prosthetics by 3-D finite element method

    This paper presents the use of three-dimensional finite element method for biomechanical analysis on dental implant prosthetics. The current research focuses on three patents of dental implant threads from United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) and a new conceptual design model. The three- dimensional finite element analysis is performed on dental implant models, with compressive forces of 50, 100, and 150 N, and a sheer force of 20 N with the force angle of 60 (degree) with the normal line respectively. Stress and displacement analysis is conducted at four different areas, including abutment, implant, cortical bone, and cancellous bone. Findings from this research provide guidelines for new product design of dental implant prosthetics with stress distribution and displacement characteristics.

  • Video Stabilization in Visual Prosthetics

    Video acquisition and processing is always the first stage in all prosthetics. We consider the problem of video stabilization applied in visual prosthetics: removing unwanted image perturbations due to unstable camera motions caused by walking subjects. In this paper, we propose a software video stabilization algorithm based on feature block searching (FBS) approach to remove the large amplitude of moving and shaking in video. Compared with the conventional approach of video stabilization, FBS is scene content oriented, and can be easily implemented due to its computational simplicity, real-time processing speed and reasonable memory requirements by tracking the motion vector locally. The experimental results show that the method results in a greatly visual quality of the reconstructed sequence and a significant saving in terms of bit rate.

  • A photogrammetry-based system for 3D surface reconstruction of prosthetics and orthotics

    The objective of this study is to develop an innovative close range digital photogrammetry (CRDP) system using the commercial digital SLR cameras to measure and reconstruct the 3D surface of prosthetics and orthotics. This paper describes the instrumentation, techniques and preliminary results of the proposed system. The technique works by taking pictures of the object from multiple view angles. The series of pictures were post-processed via feature point extraction, point match and 3D surface reconstruction. In comparison with the traditional method such as laser scanning, the major advantages of our instrument include the lower cost, compact and easy-to-use hardware, satisfactory measurement accuracy, and significantly less measurement time. Besides its potential applications in prosthetics and orthotics surface measurement, the simple setup and its ease of use will make it suitable for various 3D surface reconstructions.
