Neuro-Robotics: From Brain Machine Interfaces to by Panagiotis Artemiadis

By Panagiotis Artemiadis

Neuro-robotics is likely one of the such a lot multidisciplinary fields of the final a long time, fusing details and data from neuroscience, engineering and computing device technological know-how. This e-book makes a speciality of the implications from the strategic alliance among Neuroscience and Robotics that support the medical group to raised comprehend the mind in addition to layout robot units and algorithms for interfacing people and robots. the 1st a part of the booklet introduces the assumption of neuro-robotics, via featuring cutting-edge bio-inspired units. the second one a part of the publication specializes in human-machine interfaces for functionality augmentation, that could obvious as augmentation of talents of fit matters or information in case of the mobility impaired. The 3rd a part of the e-book specializes in the inverse challenge, i.e. how we will use robot units that bodily engage with the human physique, so as (a) to appreciate human motor keep an eye on and (b) to supply treatment to neurologically impaired humans or individuals with disabilities.

Advances in Rehabilitation Robotics: Human-friendly Technologies on Movement Assistance and Restoration for People with Disabilities

One of many significant software ambitions of carrier robots is to take advantage of them as assistive units for rehabilitation. This booklet introduces a few most recent achievements within the box of rehabilitation robotics and assistive know-how for individuals with disabilities and elderly humans. The ebook comprises effects from either theoretical and experimental works and studies on a few new complicated rehabilitation units which has been lately transferred to the undefined.

Mente e cuore - Clinica psicologica della malattia cardiaca

Dati recenti hanno dimostrato che esiste una relazione tra le condizioni psicologiche e los angeles malattia cardiaca. Inoltre gli interventi psicologici su pazienti con malattia coronarica (CHD) possono ridurre il rischio cardiaco e migliorare los angeles loro qualità di vita. Questo quantity, che è frutto della collaborazione con i più impegnati ricercatori internazionali nel campo della psicologia clinica e della salute applicata alla malattia cardiaca, presenta un landscape aggiornato e completo delle ricerche scientifiche in questo ambito.

The Spastic Forms of Cerebral Palsy: A Guide to the Assessment of Adaptive Functions

This booklet is the results of experiences on cerebral palsy (CP) in kids that the authors and their collaborators (medical medical professionals and therapists) have conducted lately. It addresses the most issues linked to the overview of adaptive features within the spastic different types of CP (definition and ameliorations over the latest many years, newly labeled orientations, etiopathogenesis, anatomic–functional correlations, semiotics, and the so-called linked problems: visible, cognitive, and behavioral).

Vestibular function: evaluation and treatment

A number of etiologies and a scarcity of scientific proof either give a contribution to the demanding situations of diagnosing and treating dizziness and stability problems. those health-related proceedings are universal one of the quickest turning out to be age workforce (75+). this article offers a dynamic advent to stability issues and is the 1st of its variety to discover the medical, clinical, and financial calls for of the sphere.

This opens up the possibility of miniaturising the sonomyography hardware and make it wearable. The issue of signal generation and conditioning is still open, though. In the above-mentioned corpus of research, the authors have never considered more than one feature at the same time. This restricted focus is probably motivated by the diversity and complexity of the changes in US images as joint positions change: the single identified feature is related to a precise anatomical change, a relation which would be quite hard to assess in the general case.

1 Introduction Medical ultrasound imaging (from now on, US imaging) has nowadays become a standard diagnostic tool in hospitals. It is used to visualise essentially all human body structures and sports an enormous wealth of information, to the point that a trained specialist can diagnose a wide range of conditions just by looking at the live images it gathers. US imaging is also widely employed as a pre-operating tool along C. D. de P. 1007/978-94-017-8932-5__2, © Springer ScienceCBusiness Media Dordrecht 2014 37 38 C.

Academic/Elsevier Science, Amsterdam/London Chapter 2 State of the Art and Perspectives of Ultrasound Imaging as a Human-Machine Interface Claudio Castellini Abstract Medical ultrasound imaging is a diagnostic tool based upon ultrasound wave production, propagation and processing, in use since the 1950s in the hospitals all over the world. The technique is totally safe, relatively cheap, easy to use and provides live images of the interiors of the human body at both high spatial and temporal resolutions.
