Mahdieh Babaiasl; Ahmad Ghanbari; Seyyed Mohhamad Reza Noorani 2013 20th Iranian Conference on Biomedical Engineering (ICBME), 2013

Cerebrovascular accident (CVA) or stroke is one of the main causes of disability. It affects millions of people worldwide. One symptom of stroke is disabled arm function. Restoration of arm function is necessary to resuming activities of daily living (ADL). Along with traditional rehabilitation techniques, robot-aided therapy has emerged in recent years. Robot-aided arm therapy is more intensive, of longer ...


A Model of Length Increases of the Pectoralis Major Muscle to Provide Rehabilitation Precautions for Patients after Mastectomy.

C. W. Jansen; W. L. Buford; R. M. Patterson; L. J. Gould 2005 IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology 27th Annual Conference, 2005

A common complication of breast cancer treatment is the development of shoulder stiffness on the affected side. Rehabilitation interventions exist, but scientific guidelines for safe early motion are lacking. A 3-dimensional model of the shoulder and the pectoralis major muscle was used to interactively generate the total muscle excursion during the simulated motions. From these simulation results it can be ...


Characterization of inertial measurement unit placement on the human body upon repeated donnings

Morris Vanegas; Leia Stirling 2015 IEEE 12th International Conference on Wearable and Implantable Body Sensor Networks (BSN), 2015

Accurate estimations of variability in multiple donnings of sensor suites may aid algorithm development for wearable motion capture systems that make use of Inertial Measurement Units (IMUs). The accuracy of any algorithm incorporating these sensors is limited by the accuracy of the sensor to segment calibration. When either sensor placement (use by a non-expert) or limb motion during calibration (natural ...

N. F. Yang; D. W. Jin; M. Zhang; C. H. Huang; R. C. Wang 2001 Conference Proceedings of the 23rd Annual International Conference of the IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society, 2001

The human motor system is mechanically complex and need to be described by using a large number of degrees of freedom. The controlled operation of such a system requires a reduction of mechanical redundancy. The coordination and synergies among the muscles and joints can be used for the reduction. In this paper, synergy is discussed through the analysis and comparison ...

Goal: Little information is available in the existing literature regarding the influence of the scapular kinematic estimate method on musculoskeletal analysis. This study aimed to assess the propagation of errors due to the method used for scapular kinematics reconstruction in the workflow of musculoskeletal modeling (joint kinematics, joint torques, muscle force and joint reaction force) in shoulder and upper-limb movements. ...

  • Methods for Movement Restoration

    Restoration of movement in humans with motor disability is an important element of rehabilitation that allows reintegration into healthy life. The basis of movement restoration is the external assistance that provides the compromised function for the person with the disability. This chapter presents methods of assistance and illustrates them with some systems that are currently being accepted as favorable for rehabilitation: balance and body weight robot assistants for training of walking; reaching assistants for training shoulder and elbow functions; assistive systems based on electrical stimulation. It also briefly presents the possible use of magnetic or direct electrical stimulation of brain structures and spinal cord to enhance motor function and have therapeutic effect.

  • Boss Smart

    Cynically speaking, our main job responsibility is to please our boss and to make him/her look good. This entails we perform well in a way that our boss can claim credit for and to be loyal in a way that our boss's policies promoted and his weaknesses shielded. Sometime, we may even need to shoulder blame for our boss's fault. This chapter gives an example of Gen. Stanley McChrystal and Gen. David Petraeus, who made their bosses look bad and good respectively, to demonstrate the opposite ends of this doctrine. It defines rules, such as winning trust by showing loyalty, gaining gratitude by sharing credit and taking blame, being astute by watching for nuances, being proactive and farsighted, and showing enthusiasm for challenging assignments, which when practiced can help us achieve deftness in being boss smart.

  • The Berlin Brain-Computer Interface: Machine Learning-Based Detection of User Specific Brain States

    The Berlin Brain-Computer Interface (BBCI) project develops an EEG-based BCI system that uses machine learning techniques to adapt to the specific brain signatures of each user. This concept allows to achieve high quality feedback already in the very first session without subject training. Here we present the broad range of investigations and experiments that have been performed within the BBCI project. The first kind of experiments analyzes the predictability of performing limbs from the premovement (readiness) potentials including successful feedback experiments. The limits with respect to the spatial resolution of the somatotopy are explored by contrasting brain patterns of movements of (1) left vs. right foot, (2) index vs. little finger within one hand, and (3) finger vs. wrist vs. elbow vs. shoulder within one arm. A study of phantom movements of patients with traumatic amputations shows the potential applicability of this BCI approach. In a complementary approach, voluntary modulations of sensorimotor rhythms caused by motor imagery (left hand vs. right hand vs. foot) are translated into a proportional feedback signal. We report results of a recent feedback study with six healthy subjects with no or very little experience with BCI control: Half of the subjects achieved an information transfer rate above 35 bits per minute (bpm). Furthermore, one subject used the BBCI to operate a mental typewriter in free spelling mode. The overall spelling speed was 4.5 letters per minute including the time needed for the correction errors. These results are encouraging for an EEG-based BCI system in untrained subjects that is independent of peripheral nervous system activity and does not rely on evoked potentials.
