The loss of the grasp function in cervical spinal cord injured (SCI) patients leads to life-long dependency on caregivers and to a tremendous decrease of the quality of life. This article introduces the novel non-invasive modular hybrid neuro-orthosis OrthoJacket for the restoration of the restricted or completely lost hand and arm functions in high(More)
In this paper different types of electrodes for long-term surface EMG recording are compared to a reference electrode that is established for clinical use. The electrode materials include four different polymers with conductive load and a fabric of threads coated by a conductive layer. Different criteria are used to evaluate surface EMG recording: the(More)
Planar (99)Tc(m)-methoxyisobutylisonitrile ((99)Tc(m)-MIBI) scintimammography has been used for several years to detect breast cancer tumours, but with low sensitivity for small lesions. Results of tomoscintimammography studies have not been conclusive. We conducted a phantom study to compare the detection of small-sized tumours with planar versus(More)
