Multiple sclerosis

View this topic in
Multiple sclerosis (abbreviated MS, also known as disseminated sclerosis or encephalomyelitis disseminata) is an inflammatory disease in which the fatty myelin sheaths around the axons of the brain and spinal cord are damaged, leading to demyelination and scarring as well as a broad spectrum of signs and symptoms.

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.

  • Body Tracking in Healthcare

    Within the context of healthcare, there has been a long-standing interest in understanding the posture and movement of the human body. Gait analysis work over the years has looked to articulate the patterns and parameters of this movement both for a normal healthy body and in a range of movement-based disorders. In recent years, these efforts to understand the moving body have been transformed by significant advances in sensing technologies and computational analysis techniques all offering new ways for the moving body to be tracked, measured, and interpreted. While much of this work has been largely research focused, as the field matures, we are seeing more shifts into clinical practice. As a consequence, there is an increasing need to understand these sensing technologies over and above the specific capabilities to track, measure, and infer patterns of movement in themselves. Rather, there is an imperative to understand how the material form of these technologies enables them also t be situated in everyday healthcare contexts and practices. There are significant mutually interdependent ties between the fundamental characteristics and assumptions of these technologies and the configurations of everyday collaborative practices that are possible them. Our attention then must look to social, clinical, and technical relations pertaining to these various body technologies that may play out in particular ways across a range of different healthcare contexts and stakeholders. Our aim in this book is to explore these issues with key examples illustrating how social contexts of use relate to the properties and assumptions bound up in particular choices of body-tracking technology. We do this through a focus on three core application areas in healthcare--assessment, rehabilitation, and surgical interaction--and recent efforts to apply body-tracking technologies to them.

  • Diseases and Injuries of the Central Nervous System Leading to Sensory-Motor Impairment

    Damage to the central and peripheral nervous systems is associated with a loss of motor drive and a defective afferent input to the central nervous system (CNS). This chapter starts with a presentation of neuron injury. The injuries are categorized based on the extent and type of damage to the nerve and the surrounding connective tissue. The chapter addresses sensory¿¿-¿¿motor deficits that are caused by neuron injury or disease: (a) cerebrovascular accident (CVA), or stroke, which causes impairments due to changes in blood supply to the brain; (b) spinal cord injuries (SCIs), which result in total or partial obstruction of flow of both sensory and motor information between the peripheral and central nervous systems; (c) nontraumatic disorders of the CNS (amyotrophic lateral sclerosis and multiple sclerosis); and (d) cerebral palsy (CP). Finally, the chapter presents the incidence of CNS diseases.

  • Robot-Assisted Neurorehabilitation

    This chapter addresses the use of robots to facilitate the recovery of neuromotor functions. Early approaches to robot-based therapy were mostly empirical and limited by the available hardware, designed for industrial applications. More recent applications build on the current understanding of the physiology of the reorganization of the nervous system following a lesion. The chapter focuses on rehabilitation of the upper limb, but similar principles are applicable to the lower limb. It addresses the neuromotor recovery of chronic stroke survivors and examines two case studies in more detail. Then, the chapter discusses the available evidence on the efficacy of robot therapy. Finally, it suggests that robots may be potentially useful in the context of other neurological diseases, for example, multiple sclerosis and cerebral palsy.

  • Propagation of the Action Potential

    There are two types of regenerating nerve fibers: unmyelinated and myelinated. Unmyelinated fibers are generally small (diameter up to 0.0013 mm or 0.00005 in.) and have a slow speed [up to 1.5 meters/second (m/s) or 3.2 mph]. Two- thirds of the fibers in the body are of this type; they are used for chores for which low speed is adequate, such as the reporting of pain and temperature. A regenerating axon fires (starts to generate an action potential [AP]) when the voltage across the membrane rises above a threshold level such as 8 mV. The AP propagates like an ocean wave; the conduction speed of an unmyelinated fiber is determined by the forward speed of the wavefront at the 8-mV level. Myelinated fibers are relatively large (diameter up to 0.022 mm or 0.0009 in.) and have a high speed (up to 130 m/s or 290 miles per hour [mph]). They are used for the retrieval and processing of information where high speed is vital. A myelinated fiber is high speed because its membrane is relatively thick, but it is interrupted by nodes at which the AP is regenerated. The conduction speed is determined by the time taken for the AP to reach the 8-mV level from one node to the next. This time is approximately constant, 17 ¿¿s, regardless of nerve fiber diameter. Nonregenerative or weakly regenerative sections of nerve fiber are reflected in lower-than-normal conduction speeds; this is important clinical evidence for nerve dysfunction, such as in multiple sclerosis.
