2018 7th IEEE International Conference on Biomedical Robotics and Biomechatronics (Biorob)

The RAS/EMBS International Conference on Biomedical Robotics and Biomechatronics - BioRob 2018 - is a joint effort of the two IEEE Societies of Robotics and Automation - RAS - and Engineering in Medicine and Biology - EMBS.BioRob covers both theoretical and experimental challenges posed by the application of robotics and mechatronics in medicine and biology. The primary focus of Biorobotics is to analyze biological systems from a "biomechatronic" point of view, trying to understand the scientific and engineering principles underlying their extraordinary performance. This profound understanding of how biological systems work, behave and interact can be used for two main objectives: to guide the design and fabrication of novel, high performance bio-inspired machines and systems for many different applications; and to develop novel nano, micro-, macro- devices that can act upon, substitute parts of, and assist human beings in prevention, diagnosis, surgery, prosthetics, rehabilitation.

2017 39th Annual International Conference of the IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society (EMBC)

The 39th Annual International Conference of the IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society (EMBC’17) in conjunction with International Biomedical Engineering Conference of KOSOMBE will be held at International Convention Center (ICC), Jeju Island, Korea from July 11 to 15, 2017. The overall theme of the conference is “Smarter Technology for Healthier World” and will cover diverse topics of cutting-edge research in biomedical engineering, healthcare technology R&D, translational clinical research, technology transfer and entrepreneurship, and biomedical engineering education. The conference program will feature high-profile keynote lectures, minisymposia, workshops, invited sessions, oral and poster sessions, sessions for students and young professions, sessions for clinicians and entrepreneurs, and exhibitions.


2017 Computing in Cardiology (CinC)

Computing in Cardiology (formerly Computers in Cardiology) is an international scientific conference that has been held annually since 1974. CinC provides a forum for scientists and professionals from the fields of medicine, physics, engineering and computer science to discuss their current research in topics pertaining to computing in clinical cardiology and cardiovascular physiology.


2017 IEEE 14th International Symposium on Biomedical Imaging (ISBI 2017)

The IEEE International Symposium on Biomedical Imaging (ISBI) is the premier forum for the presentation of technological advances in theoretical and applied biomedical imaging. ISBI 2017 will be the 14th meeting in this series. The previous meetings have played a leading role in facilitating interaction between researchers in medical and biological imaging. The 2017 meeting will continue this tradition of fostering crossfertilization among different imaging communities and contributing to an integrative approach to biomedical imaging across all scales of observation.

The rejection of magnetic noise from the wire using independent component analysis for magnetocardiogram

K. Kobayashi; Y. Uchikawa; T. Simizu; K. Nakai; M. Yoshizawa IEEE Transactions on Magnetics, 2005

In magnetocardiogram (MCG) measurements, the magnetic noise from the wire used to suture the sternum after heart surgery becomes a problem. As one method of noise rejection, independent component analysis is effective. In this study, MCG measurements were carried out under the conditions that the wire was attached to a normal subject and that the wire was not attached. Signal ...


Breathing Thorax Simulation based on Pleura Physiology and Rib Kinematics

Anne-Laure Didier; Pierre-Frederic Villard; Jean-Yves Bayle; Michael Beuve; Behzad Shariat International Conference on Medical Information Visualisation - BioMedical Visualisation (MediVis 2007), 2007

To monitor a lung mechanical model and then predict tumour motion we proposed a approach based on the pleura physiology. By comparing the predictions to landmarks set by medical experts, we observed better results with regards to the one obtained with approaches found in the literature. Beside, we focus on the rib cage kinematics, which play a significant role in ...


Does pulmonary carcinoma affect the resonant properties of the thorax?

A. G. Miller; T. T. C. Choy; H. S. Chan; Y. T. Zhang Proceedings of 17th International Conference of the Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society, 1995

Intuition would suggest that any additional mass caused by carcinoma in the lungs should change the overall eigen system of the thorax in resonance. To confirm this the authors undertook measurements on several carcinoma patients to ascertain whether this is indeed the case. They present two cases in which one can observe this suspected behaviour without the problems of associated ...


Validity of the small swine model for human electrical safety risks

Michael A. Brave; Dhanunjaya R. Lakkireddy; Mark W. Kroll; Dorin Panescu 2016 38th Annual International Conference of the IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society (EMBC), 2016

Small swine are the most common model now used for electrical safety studies. Because of the significant anatomical and electrophysiological differences and the effect of animal size on the ventricular fibrillation (VF) threshold, there are concerns that these differences may exaggerate the risks of electrical devices to humans. We chose, as an illustrative and relevant example, swine studies of the ...


A Two-Axis Shoulder Position Transducer for Control of Orthotic/Prosthetic Devices

David M. Bayer; Richard H. Lord; James W. Swanker; J. Thomas Mortimer IEEE Transactions on Industrial Electronics and Control Instrumentation, 1972

A shoulder position transducer has been designed and built for use by quadriplegic patients as a control signal source. It provides control signals suitable for controlling two-axis assistive devices utilizing proportional control. The signals correspond to shoulder elevation/depression and protraction/retraction. The device is small [measuring 2 in (5 cm) by 2 in (5 cm) by 5/8 in (1.6 cm) thick] ...
