Voluntary Control of Residual Antagonistic Muscles in Transtibial Amputees: Feedforward Ballistic Contractions and Implications for Direct Neural Control of Powered Lower Limb Prostheses
  Discrete, rapid (i.e., ballistic like) muscle activation patterns have been observed in ankle muscles (i.e., plantar flexors and dorsiflexors) of able-bodied individuals during voluntary posture control. This observation motivated us to investigate whether transtibial amputees are capable of generating such... Read more

Gestural Interaction and Visual Illusion for Lower Limbs’ Neuropathic Pain Treatment
Pain caused by a lesion or a disease affecting the somatosensory nervous system is known as Neuropathic pain. It has been shown that neuropathic pain can be treated with the combination of simultaneous transcranial direct current stimulation and the generation... Read more

Biomedical Serious Game System for Balance Rehabilitation of Hemiparetic Stroke Patients
Hemiparetic stroke patients can have several muscular and postural disorders which compromise their balance. Serious Games (SG) emerged as a new approach to enhance conventional treatment by making it a motivating method to meet individual needs. This paper evaluated the... Read more

Learning-Based Quality Control for Cardiac MR Images
The effectiveness of a cardiovascular magnetic resonance (CMR) scan depends on the ability of the operator to correctly tune the acquisition parameters to the subject being scanned and on the potential occurrence of imaging artifacts, such as cardiac and respiratory... Read more

A Novel Multisensory Stimulation and Data Capture System (MADCAP) for Investigating Sensory Trajectories in Infancy
         Sensory processing differences, including responses to auditory, visual, and tactile stimuli, are ideal targets for early detection of neurodevelopmental risks, such as autism spectrum disorder. However, most existing studies focus on the audiovisual paradigm and ignore the sense of touch.... Read more

Multimodality Neurological Data Visualization with Multi-VOI Based DTI Fiber Dynamic Integration
Brain lesions are usually located adjacent to critical spinal structures, so it will be a challenging task for neurosurgeons to precisely plan a surgical procedure without damaging healthy tissues and nerves. The advancement of medical imaging technologies produces a large... Read more

An Adaptive Home-Use Robotic Rehabilitation System for the Upper Body
Robotic rehabilitation systems have been developed to treat these musculoskeletal conditions, but limited availability prevents most patients from using them. The objective of this research was to create a home-use robotic rehabilitation system. Data was obtained in real-time from a Microsoft... Read more
