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
Objective: Millions of people across the globe suffer from swallowing difficulties, known as dysphagia, that 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.
Laryngeal Pressure Estimation with a Recurrent Neural Network
Quantifying the physical parameters of voice production is essential for understanding the process of phonation and can aid in voice research and diagnosis. As an alternative to invasive measurements, they can be estimated by formulating an inverse problem using a numerical forward model.
Improving Detection of Rapid Cystic Fibrosis Disease Progression—Early Translation of a Predictive Algorithm into a Point-of-Care Tool
The clinical course of cystic fibrosis lung disease is marked by acute drops of lung function, defined clinically as rapid decline. As such, lung function is monitored routinely through pulmonary function testing, producing hundreds of measurements over the lifespan of an individual patient.
Patient Centered Communication and e-health information exchange patterns: Findings from a National Cross-Sectional Survey
This paper aimed to determine whether there was a connection between patient’s perception of communication with their doctors in the visit and their use of online health information exchange using a nationally representative survey. We used the data from the Health Information National Trends survey pooled HINTS4 Cycle 4 data and assessed outcomes using logistic regression modeling composite communication scores as a continuous variable.
