Transcranial Impedance Changes during Sleep: a Rheoencephalography Study
Objective: To demonstrate the utility of Rheoencephalography (REG) for measuring cerebral blood flow and fluid dynamics during different stages of sleep. Methods: Anteroposterior cranial electrical impedance was measured with concurrent polysomnography in a group of healthy subjects during sleep.
Identification of Developmental Delay in Infants using Wearable Sensors: Full-Day Leg Movement Statistical Feature Analysis
This paper examines how features extracted from full-day data recorded by wearable sensors are able to differentiate between infants with typical development and those with or at risk for developmental delays.

Pre-Clinical Translation of Second Harmonic Microscopy of Meniscal and Articular Cartilage Using a Prototype Nonlinear Microendoscope
Previous studies using nonlinear microscopy have demonstrated that osteoarthritis (OA) is characterized by the gradual replacement of Type II collagen with Type I collagen. The objective of this study was to develop a prototype nonlinear laser scanning microendoscope capable of resolving the structural differences of collagen in various orthopaedically relevant cartilaginous surfaces.
EMG Pattern Recognition Control of the DEKA Arm: Impact on User Ratings of Satisfaction and Usability
The DEKA Arm has multiple degrees of freedom which historically have been operated primarily by inertial measurement units (IMU). IMUs are not appropriate for all potential users. New control methods are needed.
High Resolution Cervical Auscultation Signal Features Reflect Vertical and Horizontal Displacement of the Hyoid Bone During Swallowing
Millions of people across the globe suffer from swallowing difficulties, known as dysphagia, which can lead to malnutrition, pneumonia, and even death. Swallowing cervical auscultation, which has been suggested as a noninvasive screening method for dysphagia, has not been associated yet with any physical events.
