Sleep Monitoring Using Ear-Centered Setups: Investigating the Influence From Electrode Configurations

Sleep Monitoring Using Ear-Centered Setups: Investigating the Influence From Electrode Configurations IEEE Transactions on Biomedical Engineering (TBME)
We combine ear-EEG sleep recordings with a state-of-the-art sleep scoring model, ‘seqsleepnet’, to investigate the upper limits of mobile sleep scoring. We manage to further improve on the state of the art in this field, and perform a detailed analysis of the influence of electrode positioning. From this, we find a general rule of thumb that as long a data set contain EOG information and electrode distance on the order of the width of the head, then good automatic sleep scoring is possible. We also find indications that the obtained automatic scoring may be more reliable than the manual scoring. read more

Brain-Computer Interface-based Soft Robotic Glove Rehabilitation for Stroke 170 177 IEEE Transactions on Biomedical Engineering (TBME)
This paper presents the results of a study involving the use of a Brain-Computer Interface-based Soft Robotic Glove as a novel strategy in stroke rehabilitation. The technology uses the electroencephalogram signals from stroke patients to drive the assistive actions of the soft robotic glove to assist them in physically carrying out activities of daily living. The two-arm study showed prolonged improvements in FMA and ARAT scores although no significant intergroup differences were observed during the study. In addition, all of the patients in the BCI-SRG group also experienced a vivid kinesthetic illusion lasting beyond the active intervention period. read more
