INTRODUCTION: Many basaltic meteorites are being discovered in old and new meteorite suites including those from cold-deserts (e.g., Antarctica) and hot-desert environments. It is important to establish the specific planetary body source. Proven techniques for establishing planetary parentage include stable-isotopic signatures (especially oxygen), certain(More)
Within the European project MUNDUS, an assistive framework was developed for the support of arm and hand functions during daily life activities in severely impaired people. This contribution aims at designing a feedback control system for Neuro-Muscular Electrical Stimulation (NMES) to enable reaching functions in people with no residual voluntary control(More)
MUNDUS is an assistive framework for recovering direct interaction capability of severely motor impaired people based on arm reaching and hand functions. It aims at achieving personalization, modularity and maximization of the user’s direct involvement in assistive systems. To this, MUNDUS exploits any residual control of the end-user and can be adapted to(More)
12(S)-Lipoxygenase (LOX) and its product 12(S)-hydroxyeicosatetraenic (HETE) acid have been implicated in angiogenesis and tumour invasion in several tumour types while their role in colorectal cancer progression has not yet been studied. We have analysed 12(S)-LOX expression in colorectal tumours and found gene expression up-regulated in colorectal cancer(More)
INTRODUCTION. The importance of the discovery of jarosite at the Meridiani Planum region of Mars [1] is discussed. Terrestrial studies demonstrate that jarosite requires a unique environment for its formation. Jarosite crystallizes from highly acidic (pH < 4) aqueous solutions under highly oxidizing conditions from S-rich brines. A likely scenario for(More)
Upper extremity motion in humans is complex and irregular. An orthosis designer cannot count on cyclic procedures or repetitions. When designing a bracing system for the upper limb, this complexity is challenging and therefore it is essential to know about the necessary torques, angular velocities and joint ranges. In this study, we took a closer look at(More)
– This contribution investigates the restoration of reaching function in patients with upper motor neuron lesion. Within the EU project MUNDUS a novel control strategy for a neuro-prosthesis has been developed. Functional arm movements are generated by applying controlled Neuro-Muscular Electrical Stimulation (NMES) to the shoulder deltoid muscle and the(More)
