This project discusses studies to relate movement and style of stroke to velocities of swimmers. Implementation of sensors and video to provide aid to coaches in defining the difference in swimmer's stroke action and their performance will be considered. Sensors will generate data on performance of swimmer whilst underwater camera records action of swimmer(More)
The combination of continuous intravenous infusion of diazepam (20--40 mg/kg per day) and intragastric phenobarbitone (10--15 mg/kg per day in 4 divided doses) was used to treat 19 cases of neonatal tetanus. Mortality was 2/19 (11%). This regimen was considered to have reduced the mortality and the need for artificial ventilation. The main side effects(More)
Motion analysis in sports is important to evaluate the performance of athletes. This paper will be looking into the stability of the hands in sporting activities such as archery, while aiming. Various techniques have been developed to quantify the stability without the need of physical attachments on the subject. A positioning acquisition system is(More)
The relationships between total and free serum concentrations of phenytoin and the clinical control of seizures were investigated retrospectively in 114 patients. Total phenytoin levels were measured by enzyme-modified immunoassay (EMIT), and the free fraction by ultrafiltration at 37 degrees C using 14C-labelled phenytoin as a tracer. The median free(More)
Nosocomial infections are posing an increasingly serious problem in the hospital setting. With the increasing use of ultrasound in medical diagnosis, there is the potential for transmission of nosocomial infections via the ultrasound transducer and coupling gel. We evaluated the use of different membranes (three types of commercially available household(More)
The Precision Smart Force Platform is divided into three main sections; the platform, data acquisition circuit, and software. The purpose of this research work is to design and to develop a precision force platform, which can be widely used to measure vertical ground reaction force of the human body in various daily activities i.e. walking, jogging and(More)
To evaluate the effects of simple compensated fixed-dose iodine-131 therapy for thyrotoxicosis, the long-term results for 74 patients treated with a fixed dose of iodine-131 ranging from 5 to 12 mCi (185 to 444 MBq) were evaluated in the first 2 years of a trial. The dose selected was loosely based on the gross size of the thyroid gland. Routine antithyroid(More)
