OBJECTIVE To study the influence of 10 min of cyclic twisting motion on abdominal and back muscle activities. BACKGROUND Repetitive (cyclic) occupational activity was identified by many epidemiological reports to be a risk factor for the development of work-related musculoskeletal disorders. Biomechanical and physiological confirmation, however, is(More)
In this column, the authors propose a practice-based clinical pathway development process using patient data from electronic health records. The authors aim to examine the interaction between patients' health conditions and treatment approaches, and learn the most common pathways of care to inform better patient engagement and outcomes in healthcare(More)
Image fusion is a process of combining multiple input images of the same scene into a single fused image, which preserves relevant information and also retains the important features from each of the original images and makes it more suitable for human and machine perception. In this paper, a novel region based image fusion method is proposed. In recent(More)
OBJECTIVE Clinical pathways translate best available evidence into practice, indicating the most widely applicable order of treatment interventions for particular treatment goals. We propose a practice-based clinical pathway development process and a data-driven methodology for extracting common clinical pathways from electronic health record (EHR) data(More)

In the variable-speed generation system, the wind turbine (WT) can be operated at maximum power operating points by adjusting the shaft speed optimally. This paper presents a novel maximum power point tracking (MPPT)-based control of interior permanent-magnet (IPM) synchronous generator incorporating loss minimization algorithm (LMA). In the proposed(More)

This paper presents an innovative concept to design of a magnetically levitated axial flux permanent magnet generator used in vertical axis wind turbine (VAWT). Conventional PM axial flux generator's efficiency needs to be improved by reducing frictional losses. This novel design incorporates magnetic levitation concept using rare earth permanent magnets(More)
