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.

Insect-inspired thoracic mechanism with non-linear stiffness for flapping-wing micro air vehicles

Yao-Wei Chin; Joel Tian-Wei Goh; Gih-Keong Lau 2014 IEEE International Conference on Robotics and Automation (ICRA), 2014

This paper presents the design, analysis and characterization of a compliant mechanism that saves power for flapping-wing micro-air vehicles (FWMAV). The compliant mechanism is shaped after the insect's flight thorax, which has integrated elastic hinges for energy storage. It shows a nonlinearly increasing stiffness, which slows the wings down rapidly toward the end of a wing stroke and reverses the ...


Piezoelectrically actuated four-bar mechanism with two flexible links for micromechanical flying insect thorax

M. Sitti IEEE/ASME Transactions on Mechatronics, 2003

In this paper, a piezoelectrically actuated four-bar mechanism with two flexible links is proposed to be used in a micromechanical flying insect robot wing thorax for stroke amplification. PZT-5H- and PZN-PT-based unimorph actuators are utilized at the input link of the four-bar for a compact and lightweight thorax transmission mechanism. The kinematics and dynamics of the proposed wing structure with ...


Autoregressive spectral estimation of fetal breathing movement

M. N. Ansourian; J. H. Dripps; G. J. Beattie; K. Boddy IEEE Transactions on Biomedical Engineering, 1989

A second-by-second estimate of fetal breathing movement (FBM) rate is provided. In the absence of a statistical model for the fetal breathing movement, block data structured autoregressive spectral estimation is used. The optimum tapered Burg algorithm provides a minimum variance breathing rate estimate from a short block of data. The data were recorded using a PVDF (polyvinylidenefluoride) transducer which picks ...


Physical Principles of the Displacement Cardiograph Including a New Device Sensitive to Variations in Torso Resistivity

David L. Wilson; David B Geselowitz IEEE Transactions on Biomedical Engineering, 1981

The displacement cardiograph (DCG) is a noncontacting device which senses displacements associated with the cardiac cycle through a high-frequency electromagnetic field interaction between a sensing coil and the thorax. The coil is located in the tuning circuit of an oscillator, and perturbations in the oscillation frequency, i.e., frequency quency modulation (FM), resulting from tissue displacements are monitored. The device, originally ...


Reliability of uptake estimates in FDG PET as a function of acquisition and processing protocols using the CPET

J. Feuardent; M. Soret; O. de Dreuille; H. Foehrenbach; I. Buvat IEEE Transactions on Nuclear Science, 2005

Standardized uptake values (SUV) are commonly used in FDG PET to characterize suspicious high uptakes. To better understand the reliability and the limits of SUV, we studied the accuracy of uptake estimates as a function of a number of parameters using phantom data acquired on the CPET. Methods: Using the Data Spectrum thorax phantom in which spheres were inserted, we ...

  • Physiological Motion and Measurement

    Respiratory, heart, and circulatory movements that can be detected without contact by Doppler radar are concentrated not only in the thorax, where the lungs and heart lie, but they also occur in the abdomen, which moves during respiration, and at other points on the body where superficial pulses are present. This chapter first describes the motion associated with breathing and how this motion affects the skin surface motion. It then discusses the location and anatomy of the heart, the electrical and mechanical events that cause contraction, the motion of the heart during contraction, and how that motion affects chest wall motion. The chapter also describes the location and structure of the arteries and veins, how they distend as the blood pressure varies during the cardiac cycle, and how this distension affects the skin surface motion. Doppler radar measurement of heart and respiration is a measurement of surface motion.
