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 ...


A myosignal-based powered exoskeleton system

J. Rosen; M. Brand; M. B. Fuchs; M. Arcan IEEE Transactions on Systems, Man, and Cybernetics - Part A: Systems and Humans, 2001

This paper studies the integration of a human arm with a powered exoskeleton (orthotic device) and its experimental implementation in an elbow joint, naturally controlled by the human. The human-machine interface was set at the neuromuscular level, by using the neuromuscular signal (EMG) as the primary command signal for the exoskeleton system. The EMG signal along with the joint kinematics ...


Development of a "Neuro-orthosis" for the Control of Wrist Movements in Patients with Carpal Tunnel Syndrome: Preliminary Results

U. Ugurlu; M. Ozkan; A. H. Ozdogan 2007 29th Annual International Conference of the IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society, 2007

Carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) is a common, painful condition. Treatment is indicated when the symptoms of the disease interferes with the usual daily activities. The use of orthoses is advocated in the treatment of mild and moderate CTS. The rationale for using neutral wrist orthoses lies on the relation of the disease with the increased intracarpal pressure. It was demonstrated ...


Design considerations for an active soft orthotic system for shoulder rehabilitation

Samuel B. Kesner; Leif Jentoft; Frank L. Hammond; Robert D. Howe; Marko Popovic 2011 Annual International Conference of the IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society, 2011

Strokes affect over 750,000 people annually in the United States. This significant and disabling condition can result in paralysis that must be treated by regular sessions with a dedicated physical therapist in order to regain motor function. However, the use of therapists is expensive, in high demand, and requires patient travel to a rehabilitation clinic. We propose an inexpensive and ...


Electronic orthotics shoe: Preventing ulceration in diabetic patients

Foad Dabiri; Alireza Vahdatpour; Hyduke Noshadi; Hagop Hagopian; Majid Sarrafzadeh 2008 30th Annual International Conference of the IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society, 2008

The improvement in processor performance through continuous breakthroughs in transistor technology has resulted in the proliferation of lightweight embedded systems. Advances in wireless technology and embedded systems have enabled remote healthcare and telemedicine. Continuous and real-time monitoring can discretely analyze how a patient's lifestyle affects his/her physiological conditions and if additional symptoms occur under various stimuli. Diabetes is one of ...
