Fracture Healing Monitoring by Impact Tests: Single Case Study of a Fractured Tibia with External Fixator
   Abstract: The correct evaluation of the healing process is important to define proper times of fixator dynamization and removal, avoiding refractures. Unfortunately, a quantitative healing assessment is not yet available in clinical practice. The aim of the paper is to prove... Read more

High Resolution Cervical Auscultation Signal Features Reflect Vertical and Horizontal Displacement of the Hyoid Bone During Swallowing
        Abstract 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... Read more

An Initial Investigation of Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) and Real-Time Organ Status Measurement for Transporting Human Organs
      Organ transportation has yet to be substantially innovated. If organs could be moved by drone, instead of ill-timed commercial aircraft or expensive charter flights, lifesaving organs could be transplanted more quickly. A modified, six-rotor UAS was used to model situations... Read more

Combined Seismo- and Gyro-cardiography: A More Comprehensive Evaluation of Heart-Induced Chest Vibrations.
Seismo-cardiography (SCG) is the measurement of the linear components of heart-induced chest wall vibrations, generally recorded using miniature accelerometers. Recent studies have shown promising results regarding the potential of this modality for monitoring hemodynamic parameters. Complementary to seismo-cardiography, a modality... Read more

Simultaneous Measurement of Multiple Mechanical Properties of Single Cells Using AFM by Indentation and Vibration
Cells, as the elementary units of living organisms, are regulated and governed by genes, biological processes and various microenvironments, and their status reflects the organism’s physiological situation and affects the biological function of the whole body. Moreover, recent studies have... Read more

An Acoustic Communication Technique of Nanorobot Swarms for Nanomedicine Applications
In this contribution, we present a communication paradigm among nanodevices, based on acoustic vibrations for medical applications. We consider a swarm of nanorobots able to communicate in a distributed and decentralized fashion, propelled in a biological environment (i.e., the human... Read more

Vibrotactile Stimulation Promotes Embodiment of an Alien Hand in Amputees With Phantom Sensations
Abstract Tactile feedback is essential to intuitive control and to promote the sense of self-attribution of a prosthetic limb. Recent findings showed that amputees can be tricked to experience this embodiment, when synchronous and modality-matched stimuli are delivered to biological afferent structures and to an... Read more
