This paper proposes a novel modification of the brightness preserving dynamic histogram equalization technique to improve its brightness preserving and contrast enhancement abilities while reducing its computational complexity. The modified technique, called Brightness Preserving Dynamic Fuzzy Histogram Equalization (BPDFHE), uses fuzzy statistics of(More)
The invention is inspired by the desire to understand the opportunities and expectations of developing economies in terms of healthcare. The designed system is a point-of-care (POC) device that can deliver heart-care services to the rural population and bridge the rural-urban divide in healthcare delivery. The product design incorporates several innovations(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the therapeutic effects of Functional Electrical Stimulation (FES) of the tibialis anterior muscle on plantarflexor spasticity, dorsiflexor strength, voluntary ankle dorsiflexion, and lower extremity motor recovery with stroke survivors. DESIGN We conducted a prospective interventional study. SETTING Rehabilitation ward,(More)
Wireless body area networks (WBANs) can help in enabling efficient patient monitoring solution for ubiquitous healthcare. Communication in WBANs is undertaken in two phases: intra-WBAN and extra-WBAN. The prevailing WBANs use cellular network or WiFi in the extra-WBAN phase involving communication between the on-body coordinator and access points (APs)(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the clinical feasibility and effect of neuromuscular electrical stimulation (NMES) therapy of quadriceps femoris (QF) and tibialis anterior (TA) muscles on improving gait and functional outcomes in children with spastic cerebral palsy (CP). METHOD Ten children with spastic diplegic/hemiplegic CP who were in the age group of 7 to 14(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the effects of functional electrical stimulation (FES) combined with conventional rehabilitation program on the effort and speed of walking, the surface electromyographic (sEMG) activity and metabolic responses in the management of drop foot in stroke subjects. METHODS Fifteen patients with a drop foot resulting from stroke at(More)
A prototype electronic retinal prosthesis has been tested in three subjects. The system features an implanted retinal stimulator and an external system for image acquisition, processing, and telemetry. The subjects in general performed better than chance on psychophysical tests involving object detection, object counting, object discrimination, and(More)
A programmable and portable multi-pattern transcutaneous neuromuscular stimulator was developed and evaluated for correction of foot drop in stroke subjects. The stimulator unit was designed to optimize functionality while keeping its size and power consumption to a minimum. It had two channels of biphasic stimulation (charge-balanced and constant current),(More)
The main objective of this work was to evaluate and compare the effects of Functional Electrical Stimulation (FES) therapy in the walking ability and muscle strength studied by electromyography (EMG) analysis between subacute and chronic stroke patients. Eighteen consecutive hemiplegic patients suffering from foot drop were assigned either to subacute or(More)
