De novo peptide sequencing has improved remarkably in the past decade as a result of better instruments and computational algorithms. However, de novo sequencing can correctly interpret only approximately 30% of high- and medium-quality spectra generated by collision-induced dissociation (CID), which is much less than database search. This is mainly due to(More)
Database searching is the technique of choice for shotgun proteomics, and to date much research effort has been spent on improving its effectiveness. However, database searching faces a serious challenge of efficiency, considering the large numbers of mass spectra and the ever fast increase in peptide databases resulting from genome translations, enzymatic(More)
This paper describes the pFind 2.0 software package for peptide and protein identification via tandem mass spectrometry. Firstly, the most important feature of pFind 2.0 is that it offers a modularized and customized platform for third parties to test and compare their algorithms. The developers can create their own modules following the open application(More)
OBJECTIVE Surface electromyography (sEMG) is often used as a control signal in neuromuscular electrical stimulation (NMES) systems to enhance the voluntary control and proprioceptive sensory feedback of paralyzed patients. Most sEMG-controlled NMES systems use the envelope of the sEMG signal to modulate the stimulation intensity (current amplitude or pulse(More)
In this presentation the motor function rebuilding of paralyzed limbs of the paraplegic patients caused by spinal cord injury and the hemiplegic patients after stroke and SCI is concerned. The biomedical methods and the traditional physical methods for the rehabilitation of two kinds of paralyses are reviewed. The core part is to discuss the neural and(More)
Voluntary participation of hemiplegic patients is crucial for functional electrical stimulation therapy. A wearable functional electrical stimulation system has been proposed for real-time volitional hand motor function control using the electromyography bridge method. Through a series of novel design concepts, including the integration of a detecting(More)
In this paper, a four-channel pulse-triggered functional electrical stimulator using complementary current source and time division output method is proposed for the research and application of functional electrical stimulation (FES). The high-voltage compliance and output impedance is increased by adopting the complementary current source, which can also(More)
In this study, we present an alternating controlled functional electrical stimulation (FES) strategy for rehabilitation of lower extremity motor function of hemiplegia after stroke. The muscle activity onset time, determined by using sample entropy (SampEn) analysis of an electromyographic (EMG) signal, is used as a trigger for FES to manage stimulations.(More)
