A Framework for Linking Gait Characteristics of Patients with Accelerations of the Waist

T. Wark; M. Karunanithi; W. Chan 2005 IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology 27th Annual Conference, 2005

This paper describes a framework for the analysis of accelerometer data as part of research undertaken in preparation for a clinical trial involving ambulatory monitoring of elderly rehabilitation patients. In particular we examine the response of side-mounted accelerometers to various gait patterns and attempt to establish a relationship with a biomechanical model for human gait. We explore the use of ...


About adaptive state knowledge extraction for septic shock mortality prediction

R. W. Brause 14th IEEE International Conference on Tools with Artificial Intelligence, 2002. (ICTAI 2002). Proceedings., 2002

The early prediction of mortality is one of the unresolved tasks in intensive care medicine. This paper models medical symptoms as observations cased by transitions between hidden Markov states. Learning the underlying state transition probabilities results in a prediction probability success of about 91%. The results are discussed and put in relation to the model used. Finally, the rationales for ...


Simulated fall detection via accelerometers

Justin Boyle; Mohan Karunanithi 2008 30th Annual International Conference of the IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society, 2008

We have derived a fall detection algorithm with high sensitivity and specificity from a single accelerometer device worn at the hip. A small clinical trial to obtain accelerometer data corresponding with actual falls experienced by elderly patients failed to provide a statistically significant number of fall events from which to develop an algorithm. Consequently, the detection algorithm was based on ...


Laparoscopic ultrasound for minimally invasive surgery

D. R. Dietz; M. J. Fife; L. J. Busse; S. Azim; C. G. Oakley; W. M. Glenn 1995 IEEE Ultrasonics Symposium. Proceedings. An International Symposium, 1995

Laparoscopic ultrasound is a new surgical imaging method which provides direct contact imaging of organs with high frequency. This paper reviews a variety of issues related to overall system design, transducers and arrays, and delivery systems. Laparoscopic ultrasound imaging system design addresses the requirements for high frequency, high resolution imaging in direct contact with tissue. Transducer arrays are typically high ...


FDA regulation of new devices-expedited review

E. J. Flannery IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology Magazine, 1988

The expedited review and approval of new medical devices by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is described within the context of ethical issues in the regulation of new technologies. Current statutory provisions governing approval of medical devices, and the way in which the FDA has implemented these provisions are examined. Administrative efforts by the FDA to increase both ...

  • Future Technologies for Medical Applications

    The modern age of surgery began at the end of the nineteenth century because medicine discovered the Industrial Age, with its wealth of revolutionary technologies such as anesthesia, asepsis, microscopy, and new materials. At the close of the twentieth century, the Information Age diffused into medicine, and a revolution of even greater magnitude occurred. To understand the change it is necessary to look outside of medicine to society as a whole and find the underlying principles, and then apply them within our discipline. The medical record is now becoming electronic and nearly all of our imaging has changed from film (atoms) to digital images (bits). Medical education is using computer-aided instructions, CD-ROM, and VR to simulate and supplement cadaver and animal models. With the new research in robotics, even our hand motions are being changed in to electronic signals and being sent from one place to another. The future of medicine is no longer blood and guts, but bits and bytes. A commonality of information enables us to tie together a whole new concept of how medicine could evolve, like an entire medical ecosystem, whereby discoveries in micro-sensors permits new imaging devices, which in turn enable new forms of image-based surgery. It is an upward spiral, one discovery providing a giant step forward toward the next technology and escalating the whole changing system logarithmically. This could help explain why we are all so overwhelmed by the rapidity of our changing profession. Yet the younger generation of physicians-to-be are not so uncomfortable with the rapidly changing technologies. One of their fundamental tools is the ability to understand the world in the form of three-dimensional (3-D) visualization. There is a speculative scenario that can be used as a framework to illuminate the integrating power of this concept. It is referred to as the doorway t o the future and extrapolates to 20, 50 or perhaps 100 years into the future. As a patient visits her surgeon for a consult, she passes through the office door and, just as scanning is performed today by airport security, she has multiple imaging modalities scanning her (perhaps CT, MRI, ultrasound, and infrared). The data are all collected and then displayed as a 3-D image of her (looking like the Visible Human) but with not only correct anatomic structure but also all the biochemical and other data added to the correct organ systems. If an abnormality is seen, such as a colon mass, a virtual colonoscopy can be done on the image by flying through the colon with the same view as an actual colonoscopy. If a lesion is found, the image can be used for patient education, illustrating to the patient exactly what her specific problem is. At the time of surgery, an image can be imported onto the video monitor of laparoscopic colon resection, and with data fusion the two images displayed simultaneously as an intraoperative navigation tool (stereotactic navigation). At the postoperative follow up visit, the patient is scanned again, by comparing the postoperative with the preoperative datasets and using digital subtraction techniques, the difference between the two datasets is automatic outcomes analysis. Because the record is a dataset, it can be stored on a credit card (the U.S. military is using a prototype card called the MARC card) or kept on a Web server to be distributed worldwide over the Internet for consultation. The purpose of the this scenario is to provide an explanation of and rationale for why it is so important to understand how information can empower us, to show the looking glass through which the next-generation surgeon will be viewing the world. To bring the scenario out of the speculative and rhetorical and into the real world, the technologies that these views are presented in this chapter must be held accountable to the scrutiny of science. Only when these new discoveries are properly evaluated with rigorous testing and clinical trials can ...

    Part II of Health Care Engineering begins with statistics on the occurrence of medical errors and adverse events, and includes some technological solutions. A chapter on electronic medical records follows. The knowledge management process divided into four steps is described; this includes a discussion on data acquisition, storage, and retrieval. The next two chapters discuss the other three steps of the knowledge management process (knowledge discovery, knowledge translation, knowledge integration and sharing). The last chapter briefly discusses usability studies and clinical trials. This two-part book consolidates material that supports courses on technology development and management issues in health care institutions. It can be useful for anyone involved in design, development, or research, whether in industry, hospitals, or government.
