New Developments in Mobility and Orientation Aids for the Blind

John A. Brabyn IEEE Transactions on Biomedical Engineering, 1982

An overview of both early and recent developments in artificial aids for blind orientation and mobility is presented. Most aids developed previously fall into the category of "mobility aids" intended to sense obstacles in or near the traveler's immediate path. The more global problem of absolute orientation and navigation has not been well addressed by researchers in electronic aids, but ...


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 ...

Force analysis of exoskeletal robotic orthoses and its application to mechanical design

K. Nagai; I. Nakanishi 2004 IEEE/RSJ International Conference on Intelligent Robots and Systems (IROS) (IEEE Cat. No.04CH37566), 2004

We discuss an analytical method to judge whether an exoskeletal robotic orthosis has the possibility of producing assisting forces while guaranteeing the user's safety. First, an explanation of this judgment is given. Second, a theoretical method to simultaneously evaluate the mechanical safety for the user and the possibility of assistance is proposed based on the force analysis. Then, an application ...


Design of an upper limb motion assist system with parallel mechanism

K. Homma; T. Arai Proceedings of 1995 IEEE International Conference on Robotics and Automation, 1995

An upper limb motion assist system with parallel mechanism is being developed. This system aims at assisting a patient with upper limb disability to move his/her arm in daily life or rehabilitation. It suspends an arm at its elbow and wrist with three strings each, and manipulates the arm by changing the length of each string. As a first step ...
