Effect of Amplitude and Number of Repetitions of the Perturbation on System Identification of Human Balance Control During Stance
To unravel the underlying mechanisms of human balance control, system identification techniques are applied in combination with dedicated perturbations, like support surface translations. However, it remains unclear what the optimal amplitude and number of repetitions of the perturbation signal are.
Proof of Concept of an Assistive Robotic Arm Control Using Artificial Stereovision and Eye-Tracking
Assistive robotic arms have become popular to help users with upper limb disabilities achieve autonomy in their daily tasks, such as drinking and grasping objects in general. Usually, these robotic arms are controlled with an adapted joystick. Joysticks are user-friendly when it comes to a general approach to an object.
Use of Pelvic Corrective Force With Visual Feedback Improves Paretic Leg Muscle Activities and Gait Performance After Stroke
The purpose of this study was to examine the effects of combined pelvic corrective force and visual feedback during treadmill walking on paretic leg muscle activity and gait characteristics in individuals with post-stroke hemiparesis.
Phase-Synchronized Assistive Torque Control for the Correction of Kinematic Anomalies in the Gait Cycle
Gait anomalies give rise to several clinical problems in stroke survivors, which restrict their functional mobility and have a negative impact on their quality of life. Robotics-aided gait training post-stroke has proven capable of improving patients’ functional walking, but so far it has not performed significantly better than conventional therapy.
EEG-Based Driver Drowsiness Estimation Using Feature Weighted Episodic Training
Drowsy driving is pervasive, and also a major cause of traffic accidents. Estimating a driver’s drowsiness level by monitoring the electroencephalogram (EEG) signal and taking preventative actions accordingly may improve driving safety.
Academic Review and Perspectives on Robotic Exoskeletons
Since the first robotic exoskeleton was developed in 1960, this research field has attracted much interest from both the academic and industrial communities resulting in scientific publications, prototype developments and commercialized products. In this article, to document the progress in and current status of this field, we performed a bibliometric analysis. This analysis evaluated the publications in the field of robotic exoskeletons from 1990 to July 2019 that were retrieved from the Science Citation Index Expanded database
