  • Measurement of involuntary movements system for neurological diseases patients during equinotherapy

    Equine therapy is a treatment on a horse that allows the stimulation of people physically and neurologically in areas related to walk. It is important to emphasize the recognition of these therapies since there is not much scientific documentation to support it. The main objective of this research is to create a device that allows to determine the benefit of these therapies in a quantitative way. This document describes the development of a system to measure the involuntary movements of patients with neurological diseases. The system is composed of accelerometers that send signals to a mobile device for storage and subsequent processing. The device presented not only allows an evaluation in real time, but also the temporary record, with which it will be possible to quantify the evolution in the tremor of patients.

  • Development of a system for monitoring and tracking of physiotherapeutic movements in patients with neurological diseases

    Recent research studies has shown the great contribution that serious games offer in the area of biomedical rehabilitation of injured persons. Following this trend, we intend to develop a friendly software application for monitoring the physical therapy movements of patients suffering from severe motor disabilities. The correctness of the rehabilitation exercises is verified by applying image processing techniques.

  • Movement Quantification in Neurological Diseases: Methods and Applications

    The movement of the human body offers neurologists important clues for the diagnosis and follow-up of many neurological diseases. The typical diagnosis approach is accomplished through simple observation of movements of interest (MOI) associated with a specific neurological disease. This approach is highly subjective because it is mainly based on qualitative evaluation of MOIs. Quantitative movement techniques are then obvious diagnosis-aid systems to approach these cases. Nevertheless, the use of motion quantification techniques in these pathologies is still relatively rare. In this paper, we intend to review this area and provide a clear picture of the current state of the art, both in the methods used and their applications to the main movement- related neurological diseases. We approach some historic aspects and the current state of the motion capture techniques and present the results of a survey to the literature that includes 82 papers, since 2006, covering the usage of these techniques in neurological diseases. Furthermore, we discuss the pros and cons of using quantitative approaches in these clinical scenarios. Finally, we present some conclusions and discuss the trends we foresee for the future.

  • Neurorehabilitation of poststroke cognitive impairments with the use of computed programs

    The purpose of the present research was the estimation of efficiency of new methods of neurorehabilitation of impairments of cognitive functions with the use of computer programs of correction. Twenty six post-stroke patients aged 57–69, (male - 12, female - 14) were examined and treated. In addition to usual restorative treatment all patients received a course of neuropsychological computer programs training within 14 days, 25–35 min of duration. Tasks included training of attention with use of the computed programs on the basis of Schulte's test, the task for training visual storing with a set of pictures and symbols, the switching test, correction optical and spatial gnosis with test of narrative images and the test of «arrangements of hands of the clock» with possibility of a feedback. Initial level cognitive impairments and results of restoration were estimated with the use of Mini Mental State Examination, Frontal Assessment Battery, the Clock Drawing Test, the Montreal Cognitive Assessment, Schulte's test. The first experience of inclusion of the computed programs of correction of cognitive impairments in schemes of neurorehabilitation has shown good effect concerning clinical displays, and concerning Patient Global Impression Scale. Although the results are encouraging, further studies are required with larger samples and longer follow-up to identify characteristics of those patients who are most likely to benefit from computed training of cognitive functions.

  • Evaluation of Neurological Diseases by Means of Speech Processing and Multimodal Analysis

    Summary form only given. Neurological diseases manifest in multiple motor and non-motor signs, readily observed in clinical practice for diagnosis or to evaluate disease progression. These observations consist in the analysis of multiple signs including a perceptual assessment of speech articulation, eye movements and hand-drawing-related movements. This practice entails long evaluation periods of up to two years in order to reach a reliable diagnosis. Our purpose is to propose clinical objective biomarkers gleaned mainly from signal processing of speech, but also from eye movements and drawing movements to diagnose and differentiate different neurological diseases, allowing likewise a reliable assessment of the evolution of the patient and her/his response to the treatment. Additionally, the combination of the postulated biomarkers via machine learning and artificial intelligence techniques will provide new multimodal automated classification systems to differentiate between healthy control subjects and patients suffering from different diseases such as Parkinson's Disease and atypical Parkinsonism. These new biomarkers and systems can be critical to facilitate the earlier detection of Parkinsonism and have the promise of ready distribution by cloud-based platforms to expedite access to underserved populations.

  • High-Accuracy Voice-Based Classification Between Patients With Parkinson’s Disease and Other Neurological Diseases May Be an Easy Task With Inappropriate Experimental Design

    Recently, based on voice cepstral analysis, (Benba et al, 2016) have reported discrimination between patients with Parkinson's disease and different neurological disorders with high classification accuracy up to 90%. Using disorders with high classification accuracy up to 90%. Using the same approach, we were able to experimentally separate two groups of normal healthy speakers with 96% classification accuracy and showed that the method proposed by Benba et al. may not be appropriate for discrimination between different neurological diseases. In particular, voice cepstral analysis appears to be sensitive to specific speakers' characteristics such as gender or age. Our findings emphasize several assumptions that can be considered as basic necessary conditions for research reporting speech data in progressive neurodegenerative diseases.

  • An investigation of online expert system on neurological diseases

    In this paper, we investigate the development of an online expert system on diseases for the benefit of our society using today state of the art technology such as the Internet. We demonstrate an expert system of a medical information database particularly for some neurological diseases. We also plan to present for other diseases with more examples in the near future as well.

  • Application for physiotherapy and tracking of patients with neurological diseases - Preliminary studies

    As a significant number of individuals has severe motor disabilities, due to neurological diseases, it is important to provide appropriate rehabilitation programs to improve their quality of life. Several studies suggest that serious games have a tremendous potential as rehabilitation tools. Thus, the objective of this work is to develop an application, to run as a serious game in the near future, to monitor the major physiotherapy movements of people with neurological diseases. This application will be based on Image Processing techniques, to verify whether the patient is correctly performing the physiotherapy exercises.

  • Lesion impulses: A model for neurological diseases

    A model has been proposed to localize possible lesions in the brainstem using the results of neurological tests applied to a patient. Test results reflect functioning or malfunctioning neural pathways involved in the outcome of the tests which are applied and are then recorded into the fundamental database. Previous studies utilized Monte Carlo simulation and deterministic modeling to estimate lesion probabilities. In this study we introduce the notion of a lesion impulse suitable for modeling the evolution of lesions in the brainstem and capable of incorporating key patient and symptomatic attributes for enhanced diagnostic forecasting.

  • Photo-oculography: A new method for eye movements study, interest in ophthalmological and extra pyramidal neurological diseases

    The authors present a new optical method based on the automated analysis of images of the eye for the clinical assessment of ophthalmological and neurological oculomotor disorders. The eye orientation is determined from the relative position of corneal reflex and pupil images. In this paper, specific adaptations are described for the realization of binocular recordings of eye movements on pathological patients.
