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)
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)
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)
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)
Covered or uncovered self-expanding metal stents are currently used for the palliative treatment of neoplastic esophageal strictures or compressions and esophageal leaks or fistulas due to malignancies. Erosion of esophageal stents into the respiratory tract is a rare complication and that too has been reported mostly as an early complication within few(More)
In this paper, a fuzzy inference system has been developed for automatic tea making process. The system takes five inputs and gives two output which determines the grade of black tea and milk tea. Specifically, the proposed system considers five important characteristics of hot tea beverage such as water temperature, sugar, milk, brewing time and tea leaves(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)
An intelligent drilling system can be commercially very profitable in terms of reduction in crude material and labor involvement. The use of fuzzy logic based controller in the intelligent cutting and drilling operations has become a popular practice in the ever growing manufacturing industry. In this paper, a fuzzy logic controller has been designed to(More)
