We investigated the applicability and feasibility of perceptive computing assisted gait analysis in multiple sclerosis (MS) patients using Microsoft Kinect™. To detect the maximum walking speed and the degree of spatial sway, we established a computerized and observer-independent measure, which we named Short Maximum Speed Walk (SMSW), and compared it to(More)
BACKGROUND Multiple sclerosis (MS) patients frequently have postural control impairment but quantitative posturography is difficult to perform in clinical care. Recent technology facilitates new posturography approaches. OBJECTIVE To evaluate construct validity of visual perceptive computing (VPC) for static posturography to study postural control in MS(More)
A simple and sensitive method to analyze mixtures of desmosterol, 7-dehydrocholesterol and cholesterol is described. The method involves the oxidative conversion of the sterols with cholesterol oxidase, followed by high performance liquid chromatographic (HPLC) analysis. A C18 reversed phase column (3 microns, 75 X 4.6 mm) and a mixture of methanol and(More)
The perovskite SrTiO3-LaAlO3 structure has advanced to a model system to investigate the rich electronic phenomena arising at polar oxide interfaces. Using first principles calculations and transport measurements we demonstrate that an additional SrTiO3 capping layer prevents atomic reconstruction at the LaAlO3 surface and triggers the electronic(More)
Non-invasive high-resolution Chromatic White Light (CWL) measurement devices offer great potential for solving the challenge of latent fingerprints age determination. In this paper, we place 40 prints from different subjects on hard disk platters and capture them from three different indoor locations every week over 1.5 years, acquiring high-resolution time(More)
BACKGROUND The introduction of low cost optical 3D motion tracking sensors provides new options for effective quantification of motor dysfunction. OBJECTIVE The present study aimed to evaluate the Kinect V2 sensor against a gold standard motion capture system with respect to accuracy of tracked landmark movements and accuracy and repeatability of derived(More)
A wealth of intriguing properties emerge in the seemingly simple system composed of the band insulators LaAlO(3) and SrTiO(3) such as a two-dimensional electron gas, superconductivity and magnetism. In this paper, we review the current insight obtained from first principles calculations on the mechanisms governing the behaviour of thin LaAlO(3) films on(More)
CuInSe(2) (CIS) solar cells deposited on polyimide foil by the Solarion company in a web-coater-based process using sputter and evaporation techniques were investigated in the ion beam laboratory LIPSION of the University of Leipzig by means of Rutherford backscattering spectrometry (RBS) and particle-induced X-ray emission (PIXE) using high-energy broad(More)
A II-VI wide-bandgap resonant cavity light-emitting diode is presented. The active region consists of CdSe quantum dots embedded in ZnSSe/MgS barriers, resulting in improved quantum efficiency at elevated temperatures. The resonant cavity is formed by a 14-period bottom distributed Bragg reflector and the semiconductor to air interface on top of the(More)
