2016 IEEE 13th International Symposium on Biomedical Imaging (ISBI 2016)
The IEEE International Symposium on Biomedical Imaging (ISBI) is the premier forumfor the presentation of technological advances in theoretical and applied biomedical imaging. ISBI 2016 willbe the thirteenth meeting in this series. The previous meetings have played a leading role in facilitatinginteraction between researchers in medical and biological imaging. The 2016 meeting will continue thistradition of fostering crossfertilization among different imaging communities and contributing to an integrativeapproach to biomedical imaging across all scales of observation.
2015 7th International IEEE/EMBS Conference on Neural Engineering (NER)
Neural engineering deals with many aspects of basic and clinical problemsassociated with neural dysfunction including the representation of sensory and motor information, theelectrical stimulation of the neuromuscular system to control the muscle activation and movement, theanalysis and visualization of complex neural systems at multi -scale from the single -cell and to the systemlevels to understand the underlying mechanisms, the development of novel neural prostheses, implantsand wearable devices to restore and enhance the impaired sensory and motor systems and functions.

Spinal cord injury (SCI) causes a number of physiological and neurological changes resulting in loss of sensorimotor function. Recent work has shown that the central nervous system is capable of plastic behaviors post-injury, including axonal regrowth and cortical remapping. Functional integrity of afferent sensory pathways can be quantified using cortical somatosensory evoked potentials (SSEPs) recorded upon peripheral limb stimulation. We ...

We examine a method to control the stepping motion of a paralyzed person suspended on a treadmill using a robot attached to the torso and hips. A leg swing motion is created by moving the hips without contact with the legs. The problem is formulated as an optimal control problem for an underactuated articulated chain. The optimal control problem is ...
Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society, 2000. Proceedings of the 22nd Annual International Conference of the IEEE, 2000
This research reports on the development of a headset-type position sensors- controlled computer mouse for the disabled. This system may serve to assist those who suffer from spinal cord injuries or other handicaps to operate a computer. This system is composed of three major components: (A) the position sensor module; (B) the signal-processing module; and (C) a main controller, the ...

Spinal cord injury (SCI) results in significant impairments in function and ankle joint spasticity is a common secondary complication. Various interventions have been trialed to improve function and reduce spasticity after SCI, with variable results. We investigated the effects of a pharmacological (an anti-spastic medication - tizanidine) and a physical intervention (robotic-assisted locomotor training - Lokomat) on function in people ...

The authors have developed a system to diagnose an impairment or disorder and to identify the point at which this impairment has occurred. Notably the experienced clinician continues to perform functional gait assessment in the absence of new advances. Conventional gait therapy for patients that have suffered a debilitating trauma involves many human factors that can be, at times, arbitrary, ...

The effects of spinal cord injuries are likely to be ameliorated with the help of functional electrical stimulation of the spinal cord, a technique that may benefit from a new style of electrode: the cylindrical multielectrode. This paper describes the specifications for, fabrication techniques for, and in vitro evaluation of cylindrical multielectrodes. Four tip shapes were tested to determine which ...

We have developed a standing style transfer system, or "ABLE," for a person with disabled legs. It allows travel in a standing posture even on uneven ground, a standing up motion from a chair, and allows the stairs. ABLE consists of three modules: a pair of telescopic crutches, a powered lower extremity orthosis, and a pair of mobile platforms. We ...

In remodeling the house of an SCI (spinal cord injury) patient, it is necessary to accurately determine and carry out changes that are suitable with regard to the patient's ability. In our rehabilitation center, house remodeling is demonstrated for patients and family members through the use of three-dimensional computer graphic images before the remodeling occurs. We here propose an evaluation ...

We are studying the forces applied by therapists when assisting on the legs of patients with spinal cord injury (SCI) during body-weight supported treadmill training (BWSTT). This paper presents results from three experiments with three patients and six different therapists. We attached a sensorized orthosis to one of the legs of the patients and measured the forces exerted by the ...

The purpose of this study was to develop a rehabilitation device for preventing deterioration of the neuromuscular system in patients with spinal cord injury (SCI). Specifically, motorized footrests that could generate passive motion in paralyzed ankles were devised for use with a wheelchair. We here show the concept and structure of our developed device, and confirmed its effectiveness through physiological ...

Spinal cord injury (SCI) paralyzes approximately 12,000 people each year in the United States. Individuals with an injury at and above the sixth cervical vertebra (C6) lose function in the upper and lower limbs. To provide greater independence to this population, the restoration of reaching and grasping movements is critically important. Functional electrical stimulation (FES) is currently the only clinical approach for reanimating paralyzed muscles. The chapter starts by reviewing existing technologies for obtaining a control signal that is usable for a FES neuroprosthesis. This is followed by a discussion of the promise that recent advances in brain??-??machine interfaces (BMIs) hold for more natural user interfaces. Differences in the information content of potential signal sources suggest that enhanced control signals may be generated through an efficient combination of the available sources from each individual. Finally, the chapter discusses the relation between off-line decoder accuracy and online user performance.
