Respiratory sound analysis provides vital information of the present condition of the Lungs. It can be used to assist medical professionals in differential diagnosis. In this paper, we intend to distinguish between normal (without any pathological condition), airway obstruction pathology and parenchymal pathology using respiratory sound recordings taken(More)
A sign language is a language which, instead of acoustically conveyed sound patterns, uses visually transmitted sign patterns. Sign languages are commonly developed for deaf communities, which can include interpreters, friends and families of deaf people as well as people who are deaf or hard of hearing themselves. Developing a sign language recognition(More)
Pulmonary acoustic parameters extracted from recorded respiratory sounds provide valuable information for the detection of respiratory pathologies. The automated analysis of pulmonary acoustic signals can serve as a differential diagnosis tool for medical professionals, a learning tool for medical students, and a self-management tool for patients. In this(More)
Artificial intelligence (AI) has recently been established as an alternative method to many conventional methods. The implementation of AI techniques for respiratory sound analysis can assist medical professionals in the diagnosis of lung pathologies. This article highlights the importance of AI techniques in the implementation of computer-based respiratory(More)
This brief review addresses the existing systems and challenges and provides future recommendations on computer-and biosensor-assisted rehabilitation systems for physically disabled patients. We further list the types of sensors, technical issues, and different software and hardware technologies that are currently used in rehabilitation systems to make the(More)
The purpose of this paper is to present an evidence of automated wheeze detection system by a survey that can be very beneficial for asthmatic patients. Generally, for detecting asthma in a patient, stethoscope is used for ascertaining wheezes present. This causes a major problem nowadays because a number of patients tend to delay the interpretation time,(More)
Pulmonary acoustic signal analysis provides essential information on the present state of the Lungs. In this paper, we intend to distinguish between normal, airway obstruction pathology and interstitial lung disease using pulmonary acoustic signal recordings. The proposed method extracts Mel frequency cepstral coefficients (MFCC) and AR Coefficients as(More)
The objective of this research was to investigate the relationship between emotion recognition and lateralization of motor onset in Parkinson’s disease (PD) patients using electroencephalogram (EEG) signals. The subject pool consisted of twenty PD patients [ten with predominantly left-sided (LPD) and ten with predominantly right-sided (RPD) motor symptoms](More)
