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.

Pedestrian protective performance is an indivisible part of Euro NCAP assessment protocol, and which requirements are increasing continuously. To meet the stricter requirements, the pace of development in pedestrian countermeasures is increasing rapidly. In the study, the tibia acceleration and knee bending angle failed to satisfy the performance rating aimed at Euro NCAP five stars after the lower legform impact ...

Hui Shan; Chong Jiang; Yuliang Mao; Xingsong Wang 2016 IEEE 14th International Workshop on Advanced Motion Control (AMC), 2016

In the past decades, many wearable powered orthoses have been developed with the aim of augmenting or assisting motion activities in daily life. Among many applications, they are particularly used to provide lower-limb moving assistance in locomotion-related rehabilitation tasks. This paper presents a wearable active knee orthosis consisting of an active knee joint, a double- tendon-sheath transmission system and a ...


Increasing Payload Capacity of Wearable Robots Using Linear Actuators

Junghoon Choo; Jong Hyeon Park IEEE/ASME Transactions on Mechatronics, 2017

Wearable robots for carrying heavy loads in an industrial field should be able to carry a load over their entire range of motion. The payload capacity of a wearable robot employing rotary actuators or linear actuators at the knee joints decreases drastically in the knee-flexion posture, because the moment arm of gravity increases and the moment arm of the force ...

We present a fully automatic method for articular cartilage segmentation from magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) which we use as the foundation of a quantitative cartilage assessment. We evaluate our method by comparisons to manual segmentations by a radiologist and by examining the interscan reproducibility of the volume and area estimates.

Yoshihisa Banno; Yuji Harata; Kouichi Taji; Yoji Uno 2011 IEEE/RSJ International Conference on Intelligent Robots and Systems, 2011

Parametric excitation walking is one of methods to realize dynamic walking on a level ground. This method has first applied to a biped robot with telescopic legs and later to a robot with actuated knee joints. In parametric excitation walking, mechanical energy is increased by periodic up-and-down motion of the center of mass. While parametric excitation walking with telescopic legs ...

  • ActiGait¿¿: A Partly Implantable Drop-Foot Stimulator System

    ActiGait is a four-channel partly implantable neuroprosthesis to control ankle dorsiflexion during the swing phase of gait. It was the goal of the developers to make a device that was easily handled by users with various levels of disabilities. To ensure optimal application of the ActiGait during market introduction, additional monitoring tools were applied and developed such as preoperative and postoperative magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), intraoperative fluoroscopy, and surface recordings of artifacts generated by the electrical stimulation of the nerve. By employing close monitoring during the establishment of new ActiGait clinical centers, ActiGait has been shown to be well accepted by users in several European countries. Experiences with the ActiGait have shown that thorough and targeted knowledge transfer to new clinical ActiGait centers, application of suitable monitoring tools, and close monitoring are all decisive in bringing a medical device such as an implantable drop-foot stimulator system successfully on the market.
