Development of a bilateral rehabilitation training system using the haptic device and inertia sensors

Songyuan Zhang; Shuxiang Guo; Mohan Qu; Muye Pang 2014 IEEE International Conference on Mechatronics and Automation, 2014

According to the neuro-rehabilitation theory, passive, resistance and bilateral training are commonly applied for recovering the motor-function of stroke patient. Among them, bilateral training is proved to be an effective method for the hemiparesis that occupies most part of stroke patients. In this article, a novel system is proposed for providing the bilateral training with coordinative motion of two limbs. ...


EMG-based prediction of shoulder and elbow kinematics in able-bodied and spinal cord injured individuals

A. T. C. Au; R. F. Kirsch IEEE Transactions on Rehabilitation Engineering, 2000

The authors have evaluated the ability of a time-delayed artificial neural network (TDANN) to predict shoulder and elbow motions using only electromyographic (EMG) signals recorded from six shoulder and elbow muscles as inputs, both in able-bodied subjects and in subjects with tetraplegia arising from C5 spinal cord injury. For able-bodied subjects, all four joint angles (elbow flexion-extension and shoulder-horizontal flexion-extension, ...

Characters with body materials that are different from that of humans, such as metal robots or rubber people, frequently appear in movies and comics. While the abilities of their synthetic bodies can be easily observed from their actions, their somatic sensations are more difficult to appreciat e.

The paper presents an analytical procedure, based on inverse kinematics with an Augmented Jacobian matrix, for reconstructing human arm joint motion during robot-aided motor therapy with an end-effector machine. The presented method can be exploited for investigating arm motion in the joint space and, accordingly, determining objective indicators of patient kinematic performance in order to plan and adapt the therapy ...

  • Crowdedness: Why Scarcity of Space Matters

    When I think of crowdedness in any given context, it immediately conjures a lot of negative perceptions in my mind. I imagine people in airports, train stations, shopping malls, stadiums, and subway trains jostling, elbow to elbow, for an extra inch of space. But might there be a silver lining in this dark crowd? Can firms use crowdedness to create a new kind of force? If so, what might be the key ingredient in this crowdedness force?

  • The Berlin Brain-Computer Interface: Machine Learning-Based Detection of User Specific Brain States

    The Berlin Brain-Computer Interface (BBCI) project develops an EEG-based BCI system that uses machine learning techniques to adapt to the specific brain signatures of each user. This concept allows to achieve high quality feedback already in the very first session without subject training. Here we present the broad range of investigations and experiments that have been performed within the BBCI project. The first kind of experiments analyzes the predictability of performing limbs from the premovement (readiness) potentials including successful feedback experiments. The limits with respect to the spatial resolution of the somatotopy are explored by contrasting brain patterns of movements of (1) left vs. right foot, (2) index vs. little finger within one hand, and (3) finger vs. wrist vs. elbow vs. shoulder within one arm. A study of phantom movements of patients with traumatic amputations shows the potential applicability of this BCI approach. In a complementary approach, voluntary modulations of sensorimotor rhythms caused by motor imagery (left hand vs. right hand vs. foot) are translated into a proportional feedback signal. We report results of a recent feedback study with six healthy subjects with no or very little experience with BCI control: Half of the subjects achieved an information transfer rate above 35 bits per minute (bpm). Furthermore, one subject used the BBCI to operate a mental typewriter in free spelling mode. The overall spelling speed was 4.5 letters per minute including the time needed for the correction errors. These results are encouraging for an EEG-based BCI system in untrained subjects that is independent of peripheral nervous system activity and does not rely on evoked potentials.

  • Methods for Movement Restoration

    Restoration of movement in humans with motor disability is an important element of rehabilitation that allows reintegration into healthy life. The basis of movement restoration is the external assistance that provides the compromised function for the person with the disability. This chapter presents methods of assistance and illustrates them with some systems that are currently being accepted as favorable for rehabilitation: balance and body weight robot assistants for training of walking; reaching assistants for training shoulder and elbow functions; assistive systems based on electrical stimulation. It also briefly presents the possible use of magnetic or direct electrical stimulation of brain structures and spinal cord to enhance motor function and have therapeutic effect.
