  1. Human joint motion estimation for electromyography (EMG)-based dynamic motion control.

    International Conference of the IEEE Engineerin... 2013:21 (2013) PMID 24109614

    We propose a joint motion estimation method based on muscle activation recorded from a pair of agonist and antagonist muscles of the joint. A linear state-space model with multi input single output is proposed to map the muscle activity to joint motion. An adaptive estimation method is proposed to t...
  2. Joint symbolic dynamics as an effective approach to study the influence of respiratory phase on baroreflex function.

    International Conference of the IEEE Engineerin... 2013:49 (2013) PMID 24109621

    We recorded electrocardiograms (ECG), blood pressure and respiration in 10 (5 male/5 female) healthy experienced athletes. For our analysis, time series of R-R intervals and systolic blood pressure were extracted, and respiratory phases were obtained using the Hilbert transform. Based on the changes...
  3. Specifications of an electromyogram-driven neuromuscular stimulator for upper limb functional recovery.

    International Conference of the IEEE Engineerin... 2013:277 (2013) PMID 24109678

    An electromyogram (EMG)-driven neuromuscular stimulator for upper limb functional recovery (Muraoka et al., 1998) can stimulate target muscles in proportion to the amount of voluntary EMG of the identical target muscles. Furthermore, it can facilitate the contraction of paralyzed muscles by electric...
  4. Analysis of a dielectric EAP as smart component for a neonatal respiratory simulator.

    International Conference of the IEEE Engineerin... 2013:457 (2013) PMID 24109722

    Nowadays, respiratory syndrome represents the most common neonatal pathology. Nevertheless, being respiratory assistance in newborns a great challenge for neonatologists and nurses, use of simulation-based training is quickly becoming a valid meaning of clinical education for an optimal therapy outc...
  5. Effects of the air sac thickness on ventilation by a 1D model of an avian respiratory system.

    International Conference of the IEEE Engineerin... 2013:461 (2013) PMID 24109723

    Airflow in an avian respiratory system was simulated to study why birds affected with airsacculitis have respiratory distress. The airflow in the avian lung was modeled with a 1D electrical circuit and simulated for investigating what effect an increase in wall thickness of air sacs caused by airsac...
  6. Estimation of fiber orientation by filtered q-ball imaging*.

    International Conference of the IEEE Engineerin... 2013:519 (2013) PMID 24109738

    We proposed a filtered q-ball imaging (fQBI) method for the reconstruction of fiber orientation distribution function (ODF) together with the quantitative comparison to unfiltered QBI. The filter kernel increases the high angular frequency content that is beneficial for the angular resolution in res...
  7. Intracranial temperature and pressure measurement: In vitro temperature sensing characteristics of the dual sensing element.

    International Conference of the IEEE Engineerin... 2013:620 (2013) PMID 24109763

    We have designed, and characterized the measurement of temperature from the same sensor to allow simultaneous monitoring of intracranial temperature and pressure. The temperature measurement has a sensitivity of 85.08 mV/°C across the measurement range 20-45 °C. The time constant of the temperature...
  8. Benchmarking RNA-Seq quantification tools.

    International Conference of the IEEE Engineerin... 2013:647 (2013) PMID 24109770

    We do not know which of these tools produces the most accurate gene expression estimates. In this study we have addressed this issue using Cufflinks, IsoEM, HTSeq, and RSEM to quantify RNA-Seq expression profiles. Comparing results of these quantification tools, we observe that RNA-Seq relative expr...
  9. Applications of software-defined radio (SDR) technology in hospital environments.

    International Conference of the IEEE Engineerin... 2013:1266 (2013) PMID 24109925

    A software-defined radio (SDR) is a radio communication system where the major part of its functionality is implemented by means of software in a personal computer or embedded system. Such a design paradigm has the major advantage of producing devices that can receive and transmit widely different r...
  10. A mobile SSVEP-based brain-computer interface for freely moving humans: The robustness of canonical correlation analysis to motion artifacts...

    International Conference of the IEEE Engineerin... 2013:1350 (2013) PMID 24109946

    Recently, translating a steady-state visual-evoked potential (SSVEP)-based brain-computer interface (BCI) from laboratory settings to real-life applications has gained increasing attention. This study systematically tests the signal quality of SSVEP acquired by a mobile electroencephalogram (EEG) sy...
