Meeting the needs of the elderly presents important technical challenges. In this research, a system concept for a robotic aid to provide mobility assistance and monitoring for the elderly and its enabling technologies are being developed. The system, called PAMM (Personal Aid for Mobility and Monitoring), is intended to assist the elderly living(More)
OBJECTIVE With the introduction of cross-sectional imaging methods the number of lesions per patient that can be evaluated is frequently large and most oncologists and study protocols use only one lesion or a few 'representative' lesions to evaluate chemotherapy response. Intra-patient response variability can therefore affect evaluation reproducibility.(More)
Objective. To observe the subjects' perception of orientation following certain head movements or change of simulator cab attitude in hypergravity (HG), and assess the feasibility of simulating G-excess illusion on the ground by a centrifuge-like Spatial Disorientation (SD) simulator. Method. 1.6 G force field was generated by planetary rotation of the(More)
OBJECTIVE Anxiety disorders have been shown to undermine the quality of life of cancer patients. Unfortunately, medical professionals often neglect to screen for anxiety in their patients. The aim of the present study was to describe the prevalence of anxiety in patients awaiting diagnostic procedures in an oncology center waiting room, and to investigate(More)
In routine clinical electronystagmographic (ENG) tests (postrotatory, optokinetic, caloric and tracking tests), eye movement signals were analyzed and a multiple discriminant analysis was carried out with the aid of a microcomputer. Six parameters were selected and, based on these, two functions for discriminating between peripheral and central disorders(More)
BACKGROUND Previous research has shown that a pilot's professional reliability depends on two relative factors: the pilot's functional state and the demands of task workload. The Psychophysiological Reserve Capacity (PRC) is defined as a pilot's ability to accomplish additive tasks without reducing the performance of the primary task (flight task). (More)
