Wrist

View this topic in
In human anatomy, the wrist is variously defined as 1 the carpus or carpal bones, the complex of eight bones forming the proximal skeletal segment of the hand; (2) the wrist joint or radiocarpal joint, the joint between the radius and the carpus; and (3) the anatomical region surrounding the carpus including the distal parts of the bones of the forearm and the proximal parts of the metacarpus or five metacarpal bones and the series of joints between these bones, thus referred to as wrist joints.

A Fuzzy-Based Adaptive Rehabilitation Framework for Home-Based Wrist Training

Ali Karime; Mohamad Eid; Jihad Mohamad Alja'am; Abdulmotaleb El Saddik; Wail Gueaieb IEEE Transactions on Instrumentation and Measurement, 2014

Computer-based rehabilitation systems have emerged as promising assistive tools for effective training and diagnosis and gained popularity in clinical settings. For many patients, home-based rehabilitation can be really beneficial in their therapy journeys since it can eliminate the obstacles encountered by many of them in clinics, such as travel distance and cost. However, an effective home-training system requires a good ...


Singularity Analysis and Avoidance for Robot Manipulators With Nonspherical Wrists

Wenfu Xu; Jintao Zhang; Bin Liang; Bing Li IEEE Transactions on Industrial Electronics, 2016

For a class of nonspherical-wrist manipulators, i.e., redundant or nonredundant, we propose unified singularity analysis and computation- effective avoidance methods. First, we construct a unified model to describe this class of manipulators and derive the kinematics equation and its modified form. Second, the Jacobian matrix of an $n$-degree-of-freedom (DOF) manipulator is partitioned into block triangle form, and the singularity conditions ...

Motion planning for robotic manipulators with independent wrist joints

Kalin Gochev; Venkatraman Narayanan; Benjamin Cohen; Alla Safonova; Maxim Likhachev 2014 IEEE International Conference on Robotics and Automation (ICRA), 2014

Advanced modern humanoid robots often have complex manipulators with a large number of degrees of freedom. Thus, motion planning for such manipulators is a very computationally challenging problem. However, often robotic manipulators allow the wrist degrees of freedom to be controlled independently from the configuration of the rest of the arm. In this paper we show how to split the ...


The Quantization of Chinese Deep Pulse

Cheng-Chi Tai; Sen-Chang Hwang; Song-Tao Wang 2005 IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology 27th Annual Conference, 2005

Clinic Chinese pulse diagnosis is done by using fingers to touch the radial artery on the wrist to get the floating, middle, and deep pulses. However, the pressure of deep pulse is not an absolute value. It depends on many individual factors, such as age, height, weight, sex, and flexibility of blood vessel. It is very difficult to make a ...

  • Skeletal Muscle Circuits

    A skeletal muscle fiber receives action potentials (APs) from its motoneuron. Embedded in the skeletal muscles are (a) tendon organ receptors that monitor tendon stress, and (b) spindles that generate an error signal in accordance with the following equation: Error = reference (desired contraction) - distance (actual contraction), or _e(t) = r(t) - x(t)_. Three feedback loops are involved in the control of muscle contraction as follows: (a) an annulospiral receptor in the spindle feeds the error signal back to the motoneuron, exciting it until the error is zero; (b) a flower- spray receptor in the spindle also feeds the error signal back if the error is relatively large, thereby further increasing motoneuron excitation; and (c) the tendon organ feeds an _inhibitory_ signal to the motoneuron if the tendon stress is excessive. A typical motoneuron receives excitatory signals from synergistic muscles and inhibitory signals from ipsilateral antagonistic muscles. Clonus can occur if excessive time is taken for the spindle signal to travel from a wrist muscle, say, to its motoneuron in the spinal cord and from the latter back to the skeletal muscle. If the motoneuron synaptic junction weighting factor is too high, the system will oscillate.

  • The Berlin Brain-Computer Interface: Machine Learning-Based Detection of User Specific Brain States

    The Berlin Brain-Computer Interface (BBCI) project develops an EEG-based BCI system that uses machine learning techniques to adapt to the specific brain signatures of each user. This concept allows to achieve high quality feedback already in the very first session without subject training. Here we present the broad range of investigations and experiments that have been performed within the BBCI project. The first kind of experiments analyzes the predictability of performing limbs from the premovement (readiness) potentials including successful feedback experiments. The limits with respect to the spatial resolution of the somatotopy are explored by contrasting brain patterns of movements of (1) left vs. right foot, (2) index vs. little finger within one hand, and (3) finger vs. wrist vs. elbow vs. shoulder within one arm. A study of phantom movements of patients with traumatic amputations shows the potential applicability of this BCI approach. In a complementary approach, voluntary modulations of sensorimotor rhythms caused by motor imagery (left hand vs. right hand vs. foot) are translated into a proportional feedback signal. We report results of a recent feedback study with six healthy subjects with no or very little experience with BCI control: Half of the subjects achieved an information transfer rate above 35 bits per minute (bpm). Furthermore, one subject used the BBCI to operate a mental typewriter in free spelling mode. The overall spelling speed was 4.5 letters per minute including the time needed for the correction errors. These results are encouraging for an EEG-based BCI system in untrained subjects that is independent of peripheral nervous system activity and does not rely on evoked potentials.
