Modulation of ECG atrial flutter wave amplitude by heart motion: A model-based and a bedside estimate

2010 Computing in Cardiology, 2010

This paper reports two attempts at estimating the magnitude of atrial flutter amplitude modulation caused by atrial motion during heart contraction. The first approach consists in analyzing the ECG of a patient in flutter with atrioventricular block and an implanted pacemaker. These conditions facilitate QRST cancellation, even in the presence of time-varying flutter wave amplitude. The second approach is based ...

  • Lightweight, High-Bandwidth Conformal Antenna System for Ballistic Helmets

    Current military radio antennas for man-portable radios suffer from bandwidth, pattern, overall gain limitation and covertness. A number of helmet antenna designs will be analyzed and demonstrated in the bands of interest of 750-870 MHz, and 1350-2700 MHz. The helmet antenna solutions use conductive ink printing techniques to realize antenna elements that are conformal to the helmet's shape. The solutions are highly integrated into the helmet and other equipment on the soldier head for a helmet antenna system with negligible or no equipment weight gain. The design of the antenna system will take into account of the electromagnetic coupling of the head, torso and other soldier equipment on the performance of the antenna system. A Specific Absorption Rate (SAR) study will ensure safety or the user.

  • Modulation of ECG atrial flutter wave amplitude by heart motion: A model-based and a bedside estimate

    This paper reports two attempts at estimating the magnitude of atrial flutter amplitude modulation caused by atrial motion during heart contraction. The first approach consists in analyzing the ECG of a patient in flutter with atrioventricular block and an implanted pacemaker. These conditions facilitate QRST cancellation, even in the presence of time-varying flutter wave amplitude. The second approach is based on a computer model of atrial flutter embedded in a torso model featuring predetermined motion of the atria. The results suggests that this lead-dependent effect is usually not large enough to preclude reasonably accurate QRST cancellation or T-wave extraction.

  • Avatar kinematics modeling for telecollaborative virtual environments

    This paper introduces the application of a more efficient mathematical representation of the kinematics of avatars, or digital human beings, in telecollaborative virtual reality environments (VRE). The human head, torso and arms were modeled as a redundant eight-degree-of-freedom kinematics structure using an excellent alternative tool to transformation matrices, called dual quaternions. This approach achieves an extremely fast and accurate iterative algorithm that converges to one possible solution of this inverse kinematics problem. The method was implemented and tested in a CAVE Automatic Virtual Environment to demonstrate its performance in real time.

  • Response optimization and LQR based control for Quarter Car suspension with Seat-Driver model

    The suspension system aims to provide ride comfort and ride quality. It insulates car frame from road disturbances and smoothen road shock. This paper presents Quarter Car suspension with Seat-Driver (QCSD) model, focuses on optimization of parameters and development of control algorithm. Active set algorithm is used to obtain optimal parameters for designing of vehicle suspension and seat suspension. Optimized model shows fewer vibrations with comparison of original system. Linear Quadratic Regulator (LQR) and Fuzzy Logic Controller (FLC) are applied to QCSD model to reduce vibrations at head, upper torso and sprung mass LQR based controller has better settling time than FLC for step input.

  • Parameter estimation method of walking human based on radar micro-Doppler

    There is an abundance of motion information in micro-Doppler spectrum of walking human such as bulk velocity, gait cycle and cycle length. Furthermore, the physical parameters of walking human can be estimated using motion parameters. Motion parameter and physical parameter are both important for precise radar recognition of walking human. However, parameter estimation is very difficult because of the complexity of radar echo from walking human. In this paper, a parameter estimation method of walking human based on micro- Doppler spectrum is proposed to estimate the bulk velocity, gait cycle, cycle length, leg length and height, respectively. Reassigned spectrum is used and the torso component is separated from the spectrum first in this method. Then the five parameters are estimated using the separated torso component. The performance of the proposed method is verified with simulations finally.

  • Controlling lateral stepping of a biped robot by swinging torso toward energy efficient walking

    In this paper, we propose a controller for stable lateral stepping of a humanoid which utilizes the passive phase and changes the swinging phase of torso by the ground contact of the swing leg. Although the passive phase makes use of the gravitational power, the existence of the passive phase makes it difficult to control the period of the motion. We utilize the relationship between the amplitude of swinging torso and the motion period so that the desired period of lateral stepping is realized. Combined with a simple controller for walking in the sagittal plane, our proposed controller can enable 3-D walking with short step length.

  • Inverse problem in electrocardography via the factorization method of boundary value problems

    We present a new mathematical approach for solving the inverse problem in electrocardiography. This approach is based on the factorization of boundary value problems method. In this paper we derive the mathematical equations and test this method on synthetical data generated on realistic heart and torso geometries using the state-of-the-art bidomain model in the heart coupled to the Laplace equation in the torso. We measure the accuracy of the inverse solution using spatial Relative Error (RE) and Correlation Coefficient (CC).

  • Ventricular surface activation time imaging from clinical data: a quantitative comparison of two inverse approaches

    Ventricular activation time maps for both the endocardium and epicardium were estimated from MRI and body-surface ECG mapping data which had been acquired under clinical conditions. The associated nonlinear inverse ill-posed problem was solved by two different approaches. The first approach (method A) was based on a linearization technique while the second (method B) employed an optimization routine for nonlinear ill-posed problems. Both methods utilized a second-order Tikhonov regularization in order to stabilize the inverse solution. The linearization technique could be demonstrated to perform better, particularly with regard to clinical implementations and applications. In two patients suffering from Wolff-Parkinson-White syndrome, the activation time maps were estimated and quantitatively compared.

  • Design and control of dual arm robot manipulator for precision assembly

    A new structure of dual arm robot manipulator which consists of a couple of single industrial 6 DOF arms and a 2 DOF Torso is introduced. Each single industrial 6 DOF arm is able to be used as a stand-alone industrial 6 DOF robot manipulator and as a part of a dual arm manipulator at the same time. These structures help the robot maker which aims at success in the emerging dual arm robot markets be able to have good competitive power for the existing industrial robot markets at same time. The structure of developed PC-based controller with window XP and real time OS (RTX), and kinematics algorithms for the developed dual arm robot manipulator which are implemented in our controller is introduced.

  • Simulation data mapping in virtual cardiac model

    Although 3D heart and torso model with realistic geometry are basis of simulation computation in LFX virtual cardiac model, the simulation results are mostly output in 2D format. To solve such a problem and enhance the virtual reality of LFX virtual cardiac model, the methods of voxel mapping and vertex project mapping were presented. With these methods, excitation isochrone map (EIM) was mapped from heart model with realistic geometry to real visible man heart model, and body surface potential map (BSPM) was mapped from torso model with realistic geometry to real visible man body surface. By visualizing in the 4Dview, which is a real-time 3D medical image visualization platform, the visualization results of EIM and BSPM simulation data before and after mapping were also provided. According to the visualization results, the output format of EIM and BSPM simulation data of LFX virtual cardiac model were extended from 2D to 4D (spatio-temporal) and from cardiac model with realistic geometry to real cardiac model, and mmore realistic and effectiv simulation was achieved.
