  • Applications in Movement and Gait Analysis

    Motion analysis is based on measuring trajectories, rotations of joints, torque values, temporal events, and muscle activities. Force plates embedded in the floors of motion analysis laboratories measure force transfer between foot and ground during gait. Kinematics, kinetics, and surface electromyography (sEMG) are used to identify the causes of motion impairment and the resulting compensatory movements, thus enhancing clinical assessment and supporting decisions such as choice of surgery, orthoses, and rehabilitation protocols. Surface EMG can provide information on the origin of motion produced by muscle activation. EMG during task execution enables muscle activities to be assessed rather than inferred from a combination of observation of movements and clinical evaluation performed under static conditions. To ensure data reliability in applications of motion analysis, raw sEMG data on a fixed y-axis scale must be checked before five criteria: filtering, envelope computation, data normalization, clinical report creation, and statistical analysis for research purposes.

  • No title

    This book is concerned with the study of continuum mechanics applied to biological systems, i.e., continuum biomechanics. This vast and exciting subject allows description of when a bone may fracture due to excessive loading, how blood behaves as both a solid and fluid, down to how cells respond to mechanical forces that lead to changes in their behavior, a process known as mechanotransduction. We have written for senior undergraduate students and first year graduate students in mechanical or biomedical engineering, but individuals working at biotechnology companies that deal in biomaterials or biomechanics should also find the information presented relevant and easily accessible.

  • A model of operant conditioning for adaptive obstacle avoidance

    We have recently introduced a self-organizing adaptive neural controller that learns to control movements of a wheeled mobile robot toward stationary or moving targets, even when the robot's kinematics are unknown, or when they change unexpectedly during operation. The model has been shown to outperform other traditional controllers, especially in noisy environments. This article describes a neural network module for obstacle avoidance that complements our previous work. The obstacle avoidance module is based on a model of classical and operant conditioning first proposed by Grossberg (1971). This module learns the patterns of ultrasonic sensor activation that predict collisions as the robot navigates in an unknown cluttered environment. Along with our original low-level controller, this work illustrates the potential of applying biologically inspired neural networks to the areas of adaptive robotics and control.

  • Probabilistically Modeling and Decoding Neural Population Activity in Motor Cortex

    This chapter introduces and summarizes recent work on probabilistic models of motor cortical activity and methods for inferring, or decoding, hand movements from this activity. A simple generalization of previous encoding models is presented in which neural firing rates are represented as a linear function of hand movements. A Bayesian approach is taken to exploit this generative model of firing rates for the purpose of inferring hand kinematics. In particular, we consider approximations of the encoding problem that allow efficient inference of hand movement using a Kalman filter. Decoding results are presented and the use of these methods for neural prosthetic cursor control is discussed.

  • Generation of movement trajectories in primates and robots

    The design of brainlike machines for robot motor control ultimately requires a radical departure from the current robotics approach of implementing kinematics and internal space representation by means of software in synchronous, digital, and sequential 'general purpose' computers. In stead, neural net motor control of intelligent robots aims at hardware implementation of kinematics and internal space representation by means of self-organizing neural nets, which operate asynchronously, as fully parallel 'special purpose' analogue computers. On the basis of our present knowledge of the neural control of movements in the primate brain, recent concepts and models of artificial neural net motor control a rebeing presented.
