PURPOSE The necessity for standard instrumentation and measurements of color that are repeatable and reproducible is the major motivation behind this work. Currently, different instrumentation and methods can yield very different results when measuring the same feature such as color uniformity or color difference. As color increasingly comes into play in(More)
The wireless communications channel is commonly modelled as imposing a Rayleigh distributed envelope onto any incumbent signals. Antenna arrays have long been recog-nised as enabling exploitation of signal spatial diversity in such an environment based upon the assumption of uncor-related signals at the different antennas. However, it is precisely the(More)

BACKGROUND In response to 2012 guidance in which the US Food and Drug Administration's (FDA) Center for Devices and Radiological Health (CDRH) stated the importance of patient-centric measures in regulatory benefit-risk assessments, the Medical Device Innovation Consortium (MDIC) initiated a project. The project was used to develop a framework to help the(More)
The needs of individuals with upper limb amputation and congenital limb difference are not being fully met by current prostheses, as evidenced by prosthesis rejection, non-wear, and user reports of pain and challenging activities. Emerging technologies such as dexterous sensorized robotic limbs, osseointegrated prostheses, implantable EMG electrodes, and(More)
