2018 7th IEEE International Conference on Biomedical Robotics and Biomechatronics (Biorob)

The RAS/EMBS International Conference on Biomedical Robotics and Biomechatronics - BioRob 2018 - is a joint effort of the two IEEE Societies of Robotics and Automation - RAS - and Engineering in Medicine and Biology - EMBS.BioRob covers both theoretical and experimental challenges posed by the application of robotics and mechatronics in medicine and biology. The primary focus of Biorobotics is to analyze biological systems from a "biomechatronic" point of view, trying to understand the scientific and engineering principles underlying their extraordinary performance. This profound understanding of how biological systems work, behave and interact can be used for two main objectives: to guide the design and fabrication of novel, high performance bio-inspired machines and systems for many different applications; and to develop novel nano, micro-, macro- devices that can act upon, substitute parts of, and assist human beings in prevention, diagnosis, surgery, prosthetics, rehabilitation.

Noninvasive detection of coronary stenoses before and after angioplasty using eigenvector methods

M. Akay; J. L. Semmlow; W. Welkowitz; M. D. Bauer; J. B. Kostis IEEE Transactions on Biomedical Engineering, 1990

Previous studies suggest that partially occluded coronary arteries may generate sounds due to turbulent blood flow. To support these findings, the frequency spectra of diastolic heart sounds are compared before and after angioplastic surgery. Since the low-level sounds associated with partially occluded coronary arteries are contaminated with considerable background noise, traditional FFT analysis may not produce accurate frequency spectra. In ...


The medical device industry and the biomedical engineer: current status and future trends

B. E. Farley IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology Magazine, 1989

The role of new and existing technology in the development of medical devices is examined. The impact of competition and economic and regulatory pressures is assessed. The identification of clinical needs is discussed. These include the needs to reduce liability, find less invasive alternatives to surgery, improve the quality of life, and prevent disease. Career opportunities are considered in some ...


Heating characteristics of thin helical antennas with conducting cores in a lossy medium. I. Noninsulated antennas

M. S. Mirotznik; N. Engheta; K. R. Foster IEEE Transactions on Microwave Theory and Techniques, 1993

We report a combined theoretical and experimental study of the heating characteristics of helical antennas in lossy dielectric media. Proposed biomedical application of such antennas include angioplasty, hyperthermia, and catheter ablation of tissue. The study focuses on helical antennas, operated in the normal mode (wavelength greater than antenna diameter but comparable to antenna length), that are terminated at one end ...


Lasers And Angioplasty

W. P. Santamore; W. Untereker; D. Ogilby Electro International, 1991, 1991

Percutanous transluminal coronary angioplasty (PTCA) has revolutionized the treatment of coronary disease. However, a high restenosis rate is still a major complication of PTCA. In theory, the incidence of restenosis might be lower with laser techniques because atheromatous mass within the artery can be removed rather than pressed against the vessel wall. Further, the treated surface may be less ragged ...


Localized Heating Of Deep-Seated Tissues Using Microwave Balloon Catheters

F. Sterzer Electro International, 1991, 1991

Microwave balloon catheters are plastic catheters that contain microwave transmission lines that are connected to microwave antennas located inside inflatable balloons. Provisions for liquid cooling of the balloons, ternperature sensing, suctioning, etc can be incorporated into the catheters if the intended application requires it. In medical applications the catheters are inserted with collapsed balloons into blood vessels, natural body openings, ...
