Evaluation of torso stability using the basin of stability chair 2013 1129 Low back pain (LBP) is a costly problem in modern health care that affects up to 80% of the population at some point in life. The link between low back and torso instability or spinal motion has not been clearly defined. Past studies evaluating torso...
Functional electrical stimulation recumbent bicycle for stroke rehabilitation 2013 1859 Stroke is a severe condition that is one of the leading causes to both disabilities and death in the United States. A stroke occurs when blood stops flowing to the brain. It only takes minutes without blood before the brain cells begin to be damage...
Effectiveness of cooperative and competitive shared control 2014 1220 Advances in technology place ever increasing demands for effective interactions be tween humans and machines. Human-machine interaction (HMI) that incorporates shared control, in which the human and machines both simultaneously in uence the outc...
Investigating the effect of ball impact location on the overhead motion in tennis during game play 2014 1522 Tennis is a competitive sport played by millions of people worldwide. The characteristics of the game of tennis produce stress on the musculoskeletal system, especially in the upper extremity. Upper extremity injuries often occur when the arm is h...
Analysis of the maximum finite time Lyapunov exponent in time domain using data from torso stability tests 2015 2220 Low back pain (LBP) is a common health problem that affects most people during their life. The goal of this research is to track the dynamics of seated stability through the falling region and determine how the maximum finite time Lyapunov exponent (...
Diagnosing human control system capability utilizing bandwidth 2016 483 The methods used to quantify bandwidth for a simple engineering system are well established. However, the application of bandwidth to complex systems like human’s motor control is more challenging. Conceptually, bandwidth is a measure of how capable ...
Mathematical modeling of glioblastoma tumor growth under the influence of chemotherapy with fluoropyrimidine polymer F10 2016 1865 Glioblastoma multiforme is the most common and most malignant primary tumor of the brain. Optimal therapy results in survival time of 15 months for newly diagnosed cancer and 5-7 months for recurrent disease. Malignant glioblastoma patients demonstra...
Design of a powered ankle orthosis for rehabilitation 2016 681 This research describes the design, development, and testing of a powered ankle orthosis (PAO), designed to provide exoskeletal assistance with plantar flexion for a user unable to properly complete this portion of normal gait. A PAO is a powered ass...
A neural prosthesis to improve gait in people with muscle weakness 2018 238 Functional Electrical Stimulation (FES) can be used to induce contractions in muscles that do not receive adequate signals from the nervous system. People who have lost function in their foot and/or ankle following a stroke may benefit from a neural ...
Redesigning a bicycle crank arm for metal additive manufacturing by applying DFMAM guidelines to the topology optimization process 2019 27 Metal additive manufacturing has transformed the conventional design process. With the assistance of additive manufacturing, complex and novel geometries that were previously unfeasible to construct using convention methods, can now be fabricated. Tr...
