The measurement of power output (PO) during cycling has led some manufacturers to develop mobile power meters. However, such devices have to provide a valid, sensitive and reproducible PO. This study aimed to determine the validity, sensitivity and reproducibility of the Stages and Garmin Vector during both laboratory and field cycling tests. The results(More)
We propose an original approach of a miniature scanning confocal microscope that uses two electrostatic scanners with microoptical lenses. For this chip-scale microscope, we demonstrated the use of optical feedback of VCSEL's laser as an active detection. The z-axis scanner will provide a vertical motion of the first microlens in the range of 100 mum,(More)
Surgeon's adverse events may cause severe complications for patients; they are usually caused by the incorrect use of advanced instrumentation, poor training and surgeon fatigue. To avoid them, it is important to evaluate surgeon major variables like: real-time decision making, complex instrument control, manual dexterity, hand-eye coordination and fatigue.(More)
Neurosurgeons require a good sense of three-dimensional spatial perception based on diagnostic imaging and patient's brain anatomy, a correct handling of surgical instruments and a very good fine motor control, the acquisition of these skills can only be achieved through continued practical experience. This paper presents preliminary results of the(More)
A large number of power meters have been produced on the market for nearly 20 y according to user requirements. PURPOSE To determine the validity, sensitivity, reproducibility, and robustness of the PowerTap (PWT), Stages (STG), and Garmin Vector (VCT) power meters in comparison with the SRM device. METHODS A national-level male competitive cyclist(More)
The Superior Institute for Biomedical Engineering (ISIFC), created in 2001, is part of the Franche-Comte University and is accredited by the French Ministry of National Education. Its originality lies in its innovative course of studies, which trains engineers in the scientific and medical fields to get both competencies. The Institute therefore(More)
The traditional neurosurgical apprenticeship scheme includes the assessment of trainee's manual skills carried out by experienced surgeons. However, the introduction of surgical simulation technology presents a new paradigm where residents can refine surgical techniques on a simulator before putting them into practice in real patients. Unfortunately, in(More)
