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.


2018 IEEE 27th International Symposium on Industrial Electronics (ISIE)

The conference will provide a forum for discussions and presentations of advancements in knowledge, new methods and technologies relevant to industrial electronics, along with their applications and future developments.

In this paper, we propose a unified approach to teach and iteratively refine both end-effector and null-space movements. Hence, the robot can be taught to make use of all its degrees-of-freedom (DoF) to adapt its behavior to new dynamic scenarios. In order to achieve this goal we propose an incremental learning approach in a framework of kinesthetic teaching based on ...

To facilitate assessments of in-service switching reliability, a second- generation switching characteristic has been developed for use during laboratory loadbreak tests. This switching characteristic is one step toward a realistic reliability assessment of separable connector switching. First- generation switching characteristics are compared to the newly developed characteristic to demonstrate that the latter stresses separable connectors more realistically. A laboratory test ...

  • Introduction to Upper Limb Prosthetics

    This chapter overviews the current state of the art of commercial externally powered prostheses and outline current developments in research that will most likely have an important impact on future commercial prosthetic systems. It presents the requirements of advanced prostheses and discusses the rather large gap between commercial systems and systems in academic research. Since the prosthetic hand is a key component in upper limb prosthetics, the chapter mainly focuses on prosthetic hands. In fact, the lack of sufficiently powerful human-machine interfaces-or, more specifically, neural-machine interfaces-is the major limiting factor at the moment in upper limb prosthetics. Given the rather small number of upper limb amputees and the complexity of the advanced solutions discussed in this chapter as well as the excessive costs for clinical evaluation, there is no doubt that prosthetic products based on these technologies could be expensive.

  • Myoelectric Prostheses and Targeted Reinnervation

    A number of factors have led to a resurgence of myoelectric control research since the early 2000s. First, low-power electronics have developed to the point where multichannel pattern recognition algorithms can readily be implemented on an embedded system. Second, due to a large number of high-level amputees resulting from recent military conflicts, governments have initiated well-funded programs to improve neural interfaces for prosthetics. Finally, new and innovative neural¿¿-¿¿machine interfaces, such as targeted muscle reinnervation (TMR), have been developed to provide a rich source of neural information from which control signals can be derived. This chapter provides an overview of existing myoelectric control strategies, highlighting the benefits and limitations of both conventional and pattern recognition techniques, and TMR. The chapter concludes with a summary of exciting emerging technologies that have the potential to further enhance the field of myoelectric control.

  • Muscle Force and Myoelectric Manifestations of Muscle Fatigue in Voluntary and Electrically Elicited Contractions

    This chapter deals with the association between surface electromyography (sEMG) and force/fatigue and outlines this association, and the tools to study it. It considers myoelectric manifestations of muscle fatigue as investigation tools. The association between relative decrease of conduction velocity and relative decrease of spectral variables is based on the relations between conduction velocity and power spectrum and between fiber type and fiber size. Muscles are made of fibers which classified into three main types: slow oxidative fibers, fast oxidative glycolitic fibers, and fast glycolitic fibers. Analysis of variance (ANOVA), coefficient of variation (CoV), standard error of the mean (SEM), and intraclass correlation coefficient (ICC) are repeatability of sEMG measurements and fatigue indicators tools. The agreement between sEMG-based estimation of fatigue and perceived exertion, at least in isometric fatiguing contractions, is of considerable interest in occupational medicine.
