A mediator-less microbial fuel cell was optimized in terms of various operating conditions. Current generation was dependent on several factors such as pH, resistance, electrolyte used, and dissolved oxygen concentration in the cathode compartment. The highest current was generated at pH 7. Under the operating conditions, the resistance was the(More)
Treatment of medial compartment knee osteoarthritis with high tibial osteotomy can produce an unintended change in the slope of the tibial plateau in the sagittal plane. The effect of changing posterior tibial slope (PTS) on cruciate ligament forces has not been quantified for knee loading in activities of daily living. The purpose of this study was to(More)
The low-cost tag based on the ESC Class-1 Generation-2 Standards which is used in the bandwidth of the Ultra High Frequency is exposed to a number of vulnerable points of security due to the limited capability of calculation. The solution for such a problem has not been suggested yet. Because of such a reason, this paper proposes a Light-Weight Mutual(More)
This paper introduces a novel surgical robot for single-incision laparoscopic surgeries. The robot system includes the cone-type remote center-of-motion (RCM) mechanism and two articulated instruments having a flexible linkage-driven elbow. The RCM mechanism, which has two revolute joints and one prismatic joint, is designed to maintain a stationary point(More)
PURPOSE Transrectal ultrasound guided prostate biopsy results rely on physician ability to target the gland according to the biopsy schema. However, to our knowledge it is unknown how accurately the freehand, transrectal ultrasound guided biopsy cores are placed in the prostate and how the geometric distribution of biopsy cores may affect the prostate(More)
OBJECTIVES To measure the mechanical property of prostatic tissues using a minimally motorized indenter and to determine whether measurable differences in mechanical property exist between cancerous and noncancerous tissues in an ex vivo experiment. METHODS A total of 552 sites from 46 prostate specimens taken during radical prostatectomy underwent an(More)
A thorough understanding of the biomechanics of the hamstrings during sprinting is required to optimise injury rehabilitation and prevention strategies. The main aims of this study were to compare hamstrings load across different modes of locomotion as well as before and after an acute sprinting-related muscle strain injury. Bilateral kinematic and ground(More)
Masseter muscle hypertrophy has been treated for cosmetic purposes using several modalities, including injection of type A or type B botulinum toxin into the masseter muscle. In this report, we compared the efficacy and safety of abobotulinum toxin A with onabotulinum toxin A treatment for masseteric hypertrophy in 25 Korean patients with a conversion(More)
Elliptical excision is a simple, cosmetically satisfying and popular technique for surgically removing skin lesions. However, in certain situations, elliptical excision can produce resulting permanent skin deformity that is cosmetically unsightly. This article provides a series of cases that demonstrate clinical applications using S-plasty to produce a more(More)
Recent progress in genetic manipulation of pigs designated for xenotransplantation ha6s shown considerable promise on xenograft survival in primates. However, genetic modification of multiple genes in donor pigs by knock-out and knock-in technologies, aiming to enhance immunological tolerance against transplanted organs in the recipients, has not been(More)
