After spinal cord injury, functions of the lower urinary tract may be disrupted. A wearable device with surface electrodes which can effectively control the bladder functions would be highly beneficial to the patients. A trans-rectal pudendal nerve stimulator may provide such a solution. However, the major limiting factor in such a stimulator is the high(More)
After spinal cord injury, lower urinary tract functions may be disrupted. Trans-rectal stimulation of the pudendal nerve may enable patients to regain these functions via minimally invasive means. Using a finite element model of a wearable trans-rectal stimulator in the pelvic region, and a computational model of mammalian nerve fiber, various electrode(More)
OBJECTIVE Colorectal cancer is the fourth most common cancer worldwide, with a lifetime risk of around 20%. Current techniques do not allow clinicians to objectively assess tissue abnormality during endoscopy and perioperatively. A method capable of objectively assessing samples in real time and which can be included in minimally invasive diagnostic and(More)
OBJECTIVE Conditional trans-rectal stimulation of the pudendal nerve could provide a viable solution to treat hyperreflexive bladder in spinal cord injury. A set threshold of the amplitude estimate of the external anal sphincter surface electromyography (sEMG) may be used as the trigger signal. The efficacy of such a device should be tested in a large scale(More)
