This paper presents a framework for the design of a haptic-based medical ultrasound training simulator. The proposed simulator is composed of a PHANToM haptic device and a modular software package that allows for visual feedback and kinesthetic interactions between an operator and multimodality image databases. The system provides real-time ultrasound(More)
Over the last decade object-oriented development methods and techniques have gained rapid acceptance in many areas, for example Graphi-cal User Interfaces and Network Programming. Currently there are two major standard archi-tectures available to support Distributed Object-Oriented Programming: the Object Management Group's Common Object Request Broker(More)
BACKGROUND AND AIMS We investigated whether objectively measured sedentary time was associated with markers of inflammation in adults with newly diagnosed type 2 diabetes. METHODS AND RESULTS We studied 285 adults (184 men, 101 women, mean age 59.0 ± 9.7) who had been recruited to the Early ACTivity in Diabetes (Early ACTID) randomised controlled trial.(More)
We have previously shown that 6 weeks of reduced-exertion high-intensity interval training (REHIT) improves $$\dot{V}{\text{O}}_{2}$$ V ˙ O 2 max in sedentary men and women and insulin sensitivity in men. Here, we present two studies examining the acute physiological and molecular responses to REHIT. In Study 1, five men and six women (age: 26 ± 7 year,(More)

Background: Due to Lesotho's high adult HIV prevalence (23%), considerable resources have been allocated to the HIV/AIDS response, while resources for non-communicable diseases have lagged. Since November 2011, the Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation (EGPAF) has supported Lesotho Ministry of Health to roll out Family Health Days (FHDs), an innovative(More)
We present a novel haptic-based simulator for training radiology residents and sonographers. The system consists of a force feedback haptic device that interacts in real-time with registered 3D multi-modality data sets of a subject anatomy, rendered and sliced simultaneously. The proposed system allows to develop radiology expertise with minimum practice on(More)
