This paper describes the methodology that we used to design and implement balancing and walking gaits for TAO-PIE-PIE, a small 30cm tall hu-manoid robot. TAO-PIE-PIE is a fully autonomous robot with all power, sensing, and processing done on-board. It is also a minimalistic design with only six degrees of freedom. Nevertheless, its performance is comparable(More)
This thesis describes the design and implementation of a Walking Algorithm for the humanoid robot. The humanoid is intended to be an autonomous robot, and has a total of 6 degrees of freedom coming from the hip joint, knee joint and ankle joint for each leg. The aim of this thesis project is to develop a walking pattern to control and walk in a stable(More)

BACKGROUND There is debate as to whether to operate or to defer surgery on patients with concomitant rotator cuff tear and shoulder stiffness. The purpose of this study was therefore to compare the outcomes in those patients who had both their rotator cuff tear and shoulder stiffness treated with the outcomes of patients who had a rotator cuff repair but no(More)
BACKGROUND To our knowledge there has been no research that has compared the effectiveness of two popular cold therapy modalities applied to healthy human knees, with a surgical dressing, over a 4 h period. HYPOTHESIS To determine whether gel packs are more effective than ice bags at reducing skin surface temperature in humans. STUDY DESIGN This was a(More)
BACKGROUND Arthroscopic rotator cuff repair has traditionally been performed in the subacromial space from the bursal side of the tendon. The undersurface rotator cuff repair technique involves the arthroscope remaining in the glenohumeral joint, thus viewing the tendon from its undersurface during repair without a bursectomy or acromioplasty.

Bytecode, such as produced by e.g. Java and .NET compilers, has become an important topic of interest, both for industry and academia. The industrial interest stems from the fact that bytecode is typically used for the Internet and mobile devices (smartcards, phones, etc.), where security is a major issue. Moreover, byte-code is device-independent and(More)
Introduction Wide complex tachycardia (WCT) refers to a cardiac rhythm of more than 100 beats per minute with a QRS duration of 120 ms or more on the surface electrocardiogram (ECG). It often presents a diagnostic dilemma for the physician particularly in determining its site of origin, which can be ventricular or supraventricular. In one series, only 32%(More)
