We present a semi-analytical approach for the analysis of synchronization in bit patterned media (BPM) recording. The analysis is based on full numerical micromagnetic calculations of the reversal surfaces of separate BPM element. These reversal surfaces are used to define writing window zones for correct recording in BPM element arrays. The simulations(More)
The objective of this work is to develop an understanding of the relationship between mobility metrics obtained outside of the clinic or laboratory and the context of the external environment. Ten subjects walked with an inertial sensor on each shank and a wearable camera around their neck. They were taken on a thirty minute walk in which they mobilized(More)
We have fabricated nanoimprint moulds with high-density well-defined nanopatterns by pattern transfer from self-assembled nanosphere arrays on prepatterned substrates. Silica nanospheres of 100 and 25 nm diameter were regularly arranged over large areas in a self-assembling manner by capillary force via a dip-coating technique on topographically patterned(More)
This paper presents an initial overview of insights gained into how older adults mobilize in the home and community, based on data from inertial sensors which were worn by study participants over a 7-day period. The addition of a wearable camera provided additional contextual information which can be used to assess mobility and understand the factors that(More)
This award recognizes an individual who has made outstanding contributions and is a leader in the field of electronic materials. The award was presented at the TMS Awards Dinner on February 27, 2007 during the 136th TMS Annual Meeting in Orlando Florida. On February 6 th , over 100 faculty, students and staff gathered in the CMRR lobby to welcome CMRR's(More)
This paper describes three retrospective case studies to illustrate the potential clinical value of a system capable of capturing objective gait metrics and environment data from older adults with a history of falls while they go about their daily lives. Participants in this study wore an inertial sensor above each ankle and a wearable camera around their(More)
Gait initiation is a useful surrogate measure of supraspinal motor control mechanisms but has never been evaluated in a cohort following concussion. The aim of this study was to quantify the preparatory postural adjustments (PPAs) of gait initiation (GI) in fifteen concussion patients (4 females, 11 males) in comparison to a group of fifteen age- and(More)
Monitoring technologies and sensors have huge potential to support elderly people live independently at home. Providing healthcare professionals with access to sensor data displaying a patient's activities and health vitals could deliver numerous benefits, including allowing continuous care, presenting positive/negative trends which healthcare professionals(More)
