Electronic medical devices have become an indispensable part of modern healthcare. Currently, a wide variety of electronic medical devices are being used to monitor physiological parameters of the body, perform therapy and supplement or even entirely replace complex biological functions. Cardiac pacemakers, cardioverter-defibrillators and cochlear implants(More)
Intragastric balloon has become a popular method for treatment of obesity due to its less-invasive and non-pharmaceutical procedure. In this method, a gas (or liquid)-filled balloon is inserted into the stomach using endoscopy or surgery. The balloon stays in and partially fills the stomach for a desired period of time to induce the feeling of satiety in(More)
Force myography has been proposed as an appealing alternative to electromyography for control of upper limb prosthesis. A limitation of this technique is the non-stationary nature of the recorded force data. Force patterns vary under influence of various factors such as change in orientation and position of the prosthesis. We hereby propose an incremental(More)
Wireless capsule endoscopy has become a common procedure for diagnostic inspection of gastrointestinal tract. This method offers a less-invasive alternative to traditional endoscopy and provides the opportunity for exploring inaccessible areas of the small intestine. Current capsule endoscopes, however, move by peristalsis and are not capable of detailed(More)
Natural Orifice Transluminal Endoscopic Surgery (NOTES) has advantages in reducing postoperative abdominal wall pain, wound infection, hernia formation and adhesions. However, loss of spatial orientation and lack of haptic feedback during NOTES are two major technical barriers that hinder safe translation into full clinical practice. A complete solution for(More)
Reliable decoding of a user's intention is a key step to control prosthetic devices. Force myography (FMG) is often used to assess topographic force patterns resulting from volumetric changes of activated muscles. However, during limb position changes this approach may give deteriorating performance over time. To address this limitation, we developed a(More)
