Prior studies suggest manual therapy (MT) as effective in the treatment of musculoskeletal pain; however, the mechanisms through which MT exerts its effects are not established. In this paper we present a comprehensive model to direct future studies in MT. This model provides visualization of potential individual mechanisms of MT that the current literature(More)
The research results presented in this paper were obtained as part of the joint CSIRO-NASA Ageless Aerospace Vehicle (AAV) project. We describe the underlying principles, methodology, and preliminary results of modelling and simulating a multi-cellular sensor and communication network in a dynamic decentralised setting, motivated by a self-monitoring,(More)
Asthma is the most common chronic lower respiratory disease in childhood throughout the world. Several guidelines and/or consensus documents are available to support medical decisions on pediatric asthma. Although there is no doubt that the use of common systematic approaches for management can considerably improve outcomes, dissemination and implementation(More)
We consider a hierarchical multicellular sensing and communication network, embedded in an ageless aerospace vehicle that is expected to detect and react to multiple impacts and damage over a wide range of impact energies. In particular, we investigate self-organization of impact boundaries enclosing critically damaged areas, and impact networks connecting(More)
In this paper we describe novel metrics measuring complexity in self-organising networks. The metrics are investigated within the context of decentralised inspections, developed and implemented as part of the joint CSIRO-NASA Ageless Aerospace Vehicle (AAV) research project. The AAV Concept Demonstrator is a hardware multi-cellular sensing and communication(More)
Self-monitoring, self-repairing aerospace vehicles require modular, flexible and adaptive sensing and communication networks. In general, a modular (multi-cellular) sensing and communication network is expected to detect and react to impact location, energy and damage over a wide range of impacts. It is critical that global response emerges as a result of(More)
A Decentralised Adaptive Clustering (DAC) algorithm for self-monitoring impact sensing networks is presented within the context of CSIRO-NASA Ageless Aerospace Vehicle project. DAC algorithm is contrasted with a Fixed-order Centralised Adap-tive Clustering (FCAC) algorithm, developed to evaluate the comparative performance. A number of simulation(More)
Since its founding, NASA has been dedicated to the advancement of aeronautics and space science. The NASA Scientific and Technical Information (STI) Program Office plays a key part in helping NASA maintain this important role. The NASA STI Program Office is operated by Langley Research Center, the lead center for NASA's scientific and technical information.(More)
We propose a thermodynamic interpretation of transfer entropy near equilibrium, 1 using a specialised Boltzmann's principle. The approach relates conditional probabilities to 2 the probabilities of the corresponding state transitions. This in turn characterises transfer 3 entropy as a difference of two entropy rates: the rate for a resultant transition and(More)
