2013 IEEE Point-of-Care Healthcare Technologies (PHT)

A special topic conference focused on point-of-care technologies for global healthcare issues is proposed. The proposed conference will bring research presentations and technology discussion forums on recent technological advances and global issues on implementation of POC technologies. Though the challenges of providing high-quality healthcare in developing countries are different than those in developed countries, there is a common goal to provide access to health monitoring and assessment technologies to people with limited or no healthcare facilities. While the developed countries may find POC technologies as effective means for reducing healthcare costs and improving efficiency, POC technologies are critical in responding to essential healthcare needs in countries with large populations or rural areas. The developing countries in the eastern part of the globe accounting for more than 2/3rd of the population of the world face the basic challenge of providing minimal healthcare to all people.

High-order iterative learning control of functional neuromuscular stimulation systems

Yangquan Chen; Changyun Wen; Huifang Dou Proceedings of the 36th IEEE Conference on Decision and Control, 1997

A high-order iterative learning controller (ILC) is proposed for the tracking control of a functional neuromuscular stimulation (FNS) system. The high-order ILC scheme may improve the transient control performance along the iteration number direction. The proposed discrete-time high-order P-type ILC updating law and the PD-type closed-loop controller provide strong robustness in tracking control of the uncertain time-varying FNS systems, which ...

F. J. R. Richmond; R. J. Runciman; K. D. Statler; W. S. Selbie; D. B. Thomson; T. Liinamaa Proceedings of 17th International Conference of the Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society, 1995

Musculoskeletal systems in humans and other vertebrates can be difficult to model realistically because their many elements have diverse and specialized properties. Computer graphical tools are now available that can organize the large numbers of parameters needed to quantify articular relationships and muscle attributes in a particular motor system. However, such models may be overly complex for the general use ...


Dual cryogenic fixation for mechanical testing of soft musculoskeletal tissues

N. Ramachandran; Y. Koike; P. Poitras; D. Backman; H. K. Uhthoff; G. Trudel IEEE Transactions on Biomedical Engineering, 2005

Mechanical testing of soft musculoskeletal structures like tendons and ligaments are essential to medical advances. A long-standing limitation for testing these structures in isolation has been the ability to solidly fix both ends of the tendon. Cryogenic fixation technology was leveraged into the development of a dual cryogenic fixation (DCF) device. Results of the study show that the DCF allows ...


Training for knee injury prevention using a pivoting elliptical machine

Yupeng Ren; Hyung soon Park; Yi-Ning Wu; Francois Geiger; Li-Qun Zhang 2008 30th Annual International Conference of the IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society, 2008

Anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) is the most commonly injured knee ligament in sports-related activities, especially in pivoting sports. In general, knee joint movements about the off-axes are much more limited and musculoskeletal injuries are usually associated with excessive loading/movement about the off- axes. The purposes of this project were to develop an injury prevention program including a pivoting elliptical exercise ...

  • Appendix: Variable Definitions

    This book proposes a transdisciplinary approach to investigating human motor control that synthesizes musculoskeletal biomechanics and neural control. The authors argue that this integrated approach -- which uses the framework of robotics to understand sensorimotor control problems -- offers a more complete and accurate description than either a purely neural computational approach or a purely biomechanical one.The authors offer an account of motor control in which explanatory models are based on experimental evidence using mathematical approaches reminiscent of physics. These computational models yield algorithms for motor control that may be used as tools to investigate or treat diseases of the sensorimotor system and to guide the development of algorithms and hardware that can be incorporated into products designed to assist with the tasks of daily living. The authors focus on the insights their approach offers in understanding how movement of the arm is controlled and how the control adapts to changing environments. The book begins with muscle mechanics and control, progresses in a logical manner to planning and behavior, and describes applications in neurorehabilitation and robotics. The material is self-contained, and accessible to researchers and professionals in a range of fields, including psychology, kinesiology, neurology, computer science, and robotics.

  • Real-Time Inverse Dynamics Learning for Musculoskeletal Robots Based on Echo State Gaussian Process Regression

    A challenging topic in articulated robots is the control of redundantly many degrees of freedom with artificial muscles. Actuation with these devices is difficult to solve because of nonlinearities, delays and unknown parameters such as friction. Machine learning methods can be used to learn control of these systems, but are faced with the additional problem that the size of the search space prohibits full exploration in reasonable time. We propose a novel method that is able to learn control of redundant robot arms with artificial muscles online from scratch using only the position of the end effector, without using any joint positions, accelerations or an analytical model of the system or the environment. To learn in real time, we use the so called online "goal babbling" method to effectively reduce the search space, a recurrent neural network to represent the state of the robot arm, and novel online Gaussian processes for regression. With our approach, we achieve good performance on trajectory tracking tasks for the end effector of two very challenging systems: a simulated 6 DOF redundant arm with artificial muscles, and a 7 DOF robot arm with McKibben pneumatic artificial muscles. We also show that the combination of techniques we propose results in significantly improved performance over using the individual techniques alone.
