The 26 year history of the Tokyo Metropolitan Prosthetic and Orthotic Research Institute

H. Kawamura TRON Project International Symposium, 1996. TEPS '96, 1996

The 26-year history of the Tokyo Metropolitan Prosthetic and Orthotic Research Institute will come to an end on March 1997. The research and development and achievements of this institute up to now will then be incorporated into the Welfare Device Center (its tentative name), scheduled to open in June 1997. With the abolition of the Tokyo Metropolitan Prosthetic and Orthotic ...


A rehabilitation engineering course for biomedical engineers

M. B. Silver-Thorn IEEE Transactions on Education, 2002

This paper describes an upper division elective course in rehabilitation engineering that addresses prosthetics and orthotics, wheelchair design, seating and positioning, and automobile modifications for individuals with disabilities. Faculty lectures are enhanced by guest lectures and class field trips. Guest lecturers include a prosthetist and a lower extremity amputee client, an engineer/prosthetist specializing in the upper extremity, and a rehabilitation ...


A Dynamic Model of Behavior in a Discrete Open-Loop Self-Paced Motor Skill

John G. Kreifeldt IEEE Transactions on Systems, Man, and Cybernetics, 1972

Some results of a study of the sequential response accuracy exhibited by individual subjects engaged in a particular skilled positioning task requiring discrete open-loop self-paced behavior are presented. The task resembled a discrete self-paced tracking task. A mathematical deterministic discrete model capable of predicting the sign and magnitude of the subject's sequential response error was formulated. This model, based solely ...


A Smart Orthosis for the Treatment of Scoliosis

E. Lou; C. Chan; V. J. Raso; D. L. Hill; M. J. Moreau; J. K. Mahood; A. Donauer 2005 IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology 27th Annual Conference, 2005

The tightness of an orthosis for the treatment of scoliosis varies greatly during daily activities. To be effective the orthosis should be maintained at the prescribed tightness to optimize the active component of objective treatment. Subjective feeling is the most commonly used method to evaluate how patients tighten their orthoses. To provide an objective measure, a battery- powered microcomputer system ...


The control of FES-induced ankle dorsiflexion of adults with spastic diplegia using a pulsewidth modulation pattern-a preliminary study

I. Y. W. Su; D. H. K. Chow Proceedings of the 20th Annual International Conference of the IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society. Vol.20 Biomedical Engineering Towards the Year 2000 and Beyond (Cat. No.98CH36286), 1998

A universal pulsewidth modulation pattern was identified for adults with spastic diplegia in our previous characterisation study. As a preliminary clinical trial, the identified pattern was applied to 5 adults with spastic diplegia in supine position using an open-loop control system to attain and maintain a predetermined ankle dorsiflexion. A high percentage of success in obtaining a prolonged targeted response ...
