Increased cardiorespiratory synchronization evoked by a breath controller based on heartbeat detection

The cardiovascular and respiratory systems are functionally related to each other, but the underlying physiologic mechanism of cardiorespiratory coupling (CRC) is unclear. Cardiopulmonary phase synchronization... Source: Biomedical Engineering Online

Development and evaluation of a jaw-tracking system for mice: reconstruction of three-dimensional movement trajectories on an arbitrary point on the mandible

Mastication is one of the most fundamental functions for the conservation of life. The demand for devices for evaluating stomatognathic function, for instance, recording mandibular movements or masticatory mus... Source: Biomedical Engineering Online

A multivariate relationship between the kinematic and clinical parameters of knee osteoarthritis population

Biomechanical and clinical parameters contribute very closely to functional evaluations of the knee joint. To better understand knee osteoarthritis joint function, the association between a set of knee biomech... Source: Biomedical Engineering Online

A novel vision-based system for quantitative analysis of abdominal aortic aneurysm deformation

In clinical diagnostics, combination of different imaging techniques is applied to assess spatial configuration of the abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) and deformation of its wall. As deformation of aneurysm wa... Source: Biomedical Engineering Online

The usefulness of isometric protocol for foot flexors and extensors in assessing the effects of 16-week rehabilitation regiment in poststroke patients

Ankle joint function in a paretic limb has a fundamental impact on mobility. Return of joint function is a measure of early poststroke physical rehabilitation. This study aims to assess the suitability of usin... Source: Biomedical Engineering Online
