This study examined the prognosis during the past 50 years of patients in the United States who required hospitalization for porphyric attacks. The cumulative survival was determined for 136 patients with AIP who were(More)
IMPASS (Intelligent Mobility Platform with Active Spoke System) is a novel mobile robot driven by two rimless spoke wheels. Each of the spokes can be individually actuated with intelligent motion planning to walk over uneven terrain with high mobility. This form of novel locomotion has the potential to combine the efficiency of a wheeled robot and the(More)
Intelligent Mobility Platform with Active Spoke System (IMPASS) is a novel wheel-leg hybrid robot that can walk in unstructured environments by stretching in or out three independently actuated spokes of each wheel. This form of novel locomotion has the potential to combine the efficiency of a wheeled robot and the mobility of a legged robot. A highly(More)
We have all been witnessing the steep upward trend in mobile device usage and their increasing sophistication which will no doubt continue. We used to use our mobile phones to make calls and possibly to send a text message, but now we check our emails, reserve cinema tickets, and, of course, read the latest journal articles via our smartphones and tablets.(More)
