Comparison of peak power and energy requirements in different actuation concepts for active knee prosthesis

Patrick Scholl; Verena Grabosch; Mahdy Eslamy; Andre Seyfarth 2015 IEEE International Conference on Mechatronics and Automation (ICMA), 2015

In this paper we investigated the peak power (PP) and energy (E) requirements for different active knee actuation concepts at three different gaits. A lower PP or ER requirement is an important issue because it could lead to a smaller motor and less battery chargings. In this paper we compare the PP and E requirements of direct drive (DD), series ...

    Cartilage injuries in children and adolescents are increasingly observed, with roughly 20% of knee injuries in adolescents requiring surgery. In the US alone, costs of osteoarthritis (OA) are in excess of $65 billion per year (both medical costs and lost wages). Comorbidities are common with OA and are also costly to manage. Articular cartilage's low friction and high capacity to bear load makes it critical in the movement of one bone against another, and its lack of a sustained natural healing response has necessitated a plethora of therapies. Tissue engineering is an emerging technology at the threshold of translation to clinical use. Replacement cartilage can be constructed in the laboratory to recapitulate the functional requirements of native tissues. This book outlines the biomechanical and biochemical characteristics of articular cartilage in both normal and pathological states, through development and aging. It also provides a historical perspective of past and current cartil ge treatments and previous tissue engineering efforts. Methods and standards for evaluating the function of engineered tissues are discussed, and current cartilage products are presented with an analysis on the United States Food and Drug Administration regulatory pathways that products must follow to market. This book was written to serve as a reference for researchers seeking to learn about articular cartilage, for undergraduate and graduate level courses, and as a compendium of articular cartilage tissue engineering design criteria.

  • Gait Rehabilitation Using Nociceptive Withdrawal Reflex-Based Functional Electrical Therapy in Stroke Patients

    This chapter describes the modulation of the reflex size depending on the phase of the gait cycle and the stimulation site on the foot. Flexion of the hip and knee was observed irrespective of stimulation site while the largest reflexes were detected when stimulation was delivered at heel-off. Applying repetitive stimulation at 15 Hz (four bursts) increased the mechanical response substantially. This information is needed in order to utilize the reflex response optimally for gait support. In 15 subacute stroke patients, the swing phase was supported by the reflex evoked by four repetitive stimuli applied in the arch of the foot at heel-off during daily gait therapy. When tested one month after therapy, a significantly higher preferred gait velocity (average of 27%) was found compared with a control group receiving the same gait therapy but without reflex support.

    The knee meniscus was once thought to be a vestigial tissue, but is now known to be instrumental in imparting stability, shock absorption, load transmission, and stress distribution within the knee joint. Unfortunately, most damage to the meniscus cannot be effectively healed by the body. Meniscus tissue engineering offers a possible solution to this problem by striving to create replacement tissue that may be implanted into a defect site. With a strong focus on structure-function relationships, this book details the essential anatomical, biochemical, and mechanical aspects of this versatile tissue and reviews current meniscus tissue engineering strategies and repair techniques. We have written this text such that undergraduate students, graduate students, and researchers will find it useful as a first foray into tissue engineering, a cohesive study of the meniscus, or a reference for meniscus engineering specifications.

    Although the field of sparse representations is relatively new, research activities in academic and industrial research labs are already producing encouraging results. The sparse signal or parameter model motivated several researchers and practitioners to explore high complexity/wide bandwidth applications such as Digital TV, MRI processing, and certain defense applications. The potential signal processing advancements in this area may influence radar technologies. This book presents the basic mathematical concepts along with a number of useful MATLAB® examples to emphasize the practical implementations both inside and outside the radar field.
