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.

Stretch activation (SA) is a delayed increase in force generation in response to muscle stretch that occurs to various degrees in all muscle types. The mechanism behind SA is unknown, but likely involves a thin filament mechanism. Therefore, more information about thin filament proteins involved in muscle contraction is needed. Results comparing muscles with very high and almost no SA ...

Various thoracic inhomogeneities affect the measured surface ECG signal. Similarly when the conductivities of these inhomogeneities change the ECG may change as well. Conductivity of tissue may change due to variation in body water and electrolyte balance e.g. due to many diseases. Furthermore, there exits uncertainty regarding the correct values of tissue conductivities and their inter- and intrapatient alterations. Thus ...

Image noise is one of the main restrictions in computed tomography (CT) with respect to the trade-off between resolution and dose. An HD-MAF is proposed based on a local histogram function identifying the most representative CT value. The local histogram function is computed over an n-dimensional homogenous subvolume which is defined by a principal component analysis. Image filtering affects only ...

  • 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.
