Almost unlimited access to educational information plethora came with a drawback: finding meaningful material is not a straightforward task anymore. Based on a survey related to how students find additional bibliographical resources for university courses, we concluded there is a strong need for recommended learning materials, for specialized online search(More)
Translational research tries to apply findings from basic science to enhance human health and well-being. Many phases of the translational research may include non-medical tasks (information technology, engineering, nanotechnology, biochemistry, animal research, economy, sociology, psychology, politics, and so on). Using common bioethics principles to these(More)
The main goal of this paper is to present the architecture and functionality of e-Service based platform. The project is structured along several dimensions that follow the development of complementary services, integrated to support everyday work experience, research and learning in the University POLITEHNICA of Bucharest (UPB). The platform support is(More)
This work presents the design aspects of TRAVEE, a neuromotor rehabilitation system. The TRAVEE system relies on innovative concepts for improving the rehabilitation process and increasing the patient recovery rate. One such concept is to present the patient an augmented feedback as part of a learning process based on neuroplasticity. Most of the(More)
BACKGROUND Over the past decades, staging laparoscopy evolved as a useful tool in multimodality treatment of patients with abdominal malignancies, especially for detection of incurable peritoneal and liver metastasis. Natural orifice translumenal endoscopic surgery (NOTES) is a new, evolving technique which represents the next logical progression in(More)
Mixed reality (MR) concepts gained significant importance in recent years, tending to be more and more domain-specific. The current paper presents a survey on MR educational applications and debates whether they are suitable or not to support several new learning paradigms. The technological specifications and challenges of each analyzed application are(More)
This paper describes a prototype system based on Augmented Reality (AR), designed to improve the biomechanics study. The proposal includes a full system overview with accents on the AR area, where the main solution is based on HoloLens. The whole system is focused on the latest available technology, not only for the AR module. To get to the best results,(More)
While many virtual educational environments are already in use, few attempt to mix the virtual and the real worlds to a very high extent. The benefits of such approach could be groundbreaking, leading to new paradigms of education, however the complexity of the challenges and the scale of the effort are still very high. The "3D UPB" platform takes this(More)
In the last decade Virtual Reality proved to be an efficient alternative for the traditional rehabilitation method for stroke survivors, which is based mainly on kinesiotherapy. A high number of IT systems that are focusing on post stroke recovery are available at this moment. This paper contains a short description of two solutions available on the market(More)
Vast arrays of reporting are nowadays in use, allowing ever increasing flexibility and control over the displayed results. However, as IT developed and became available to all business domains, the number of reports used by companies started to challenge the possibility of good management. The European funded project Questor aims to create a revolutionary(More)
