The paper deals with the mechanical design of a new active stance-control knee-ankle-foot orthosis (SCKAFO). The orthosis is intended to provide gait assistance for incomplete spinal cord injured patients that present functional hip muscles, but partially denervated knee and ankle muscles. It consists of a passive compliant joint that constrains ankle… (More)
The combined application of Singular Spectrum Analysis (SSA) and Cluster Analysis to the automatic smoothing of raw kinematic signals is an alternative to the use of traditional digital filtering and spline based methods. SSA is a non parametric technique that decomposes original time series into a number of additive time series each of which can be easily… (More)
This work presents a recognition system for epileptiform abnormalities based on electroencephalogram (EEG) analysis. The proposed system combines a Support Vector Machine classifier automatically trained by an implementation of machine learning approach known as Bag of Words.
OBJECTIVE Diabetes mellitus seems to induce an special difficulty to control the high blood pressure. This effect is more severe on the SBP. Previous reports suggest that a new angiotensin receptor blocker, eprosartan, might have a higher efficacy to reduce SBP. It has been evaluated the BP decrease obtained with eprosartan in a group of diabetics patients… (More)
