PURPOSE To compare the stride-to-stride fluctuations, regularity and symmetry of gait using a body-fixed accelerometer in a group of healthy young and healthy older adults. METHODS Forty-one healthy young adults (24 ± 3 years) and forty-one healthy older adults (76 ± 5 years) completed a 10-min walk at a self-selected, normal walking speed while wearing a(More)
This work presents a self-aware diabetic patient software agent for representing a human diabetic patient. To develop a 24h, stochastic and self-aware patient agent, we extend the original seminal work of Ackerman et al. [1] in creating a mathematical model of human blood glucose levels in three aspects. (1) We incorporate the stochastic and unpredictable(More)
Healthcare delivery systems around the world are faced with growing demand to provide a better-quality standard of care and at the same time keep the cost and resource utilization minimal. Statistics reveal that diabetes is a major issue in the healthcare industry and there is a strong need to address this problem in order to improve and reduce the cost of(More)
We have previously identified proteins in fractions of culture filtrate of Mycobacterium tuberculosis with the capacity to induce cytokine production in monocytes, by using a technique we defined as "monocyte Western blotting" (immunoblotting). In this series of experiments, we have extended this technique to two-dimensional gel electrophoresis and have(More)
This paper illustrates the results of a research effort to measure the quality of software agents written in Java using extreme programming. A factoring of quality has been chosen in accordance with the properties and limitations of the type of products and development method considered. The use of the representational theory of measurement gave(More)
This paper reviews recent simulation and modeling applications of residential demand response including demand response enabled load models, home energy management systems, and multi-agent systems. Demand response implementation in residential sectors is a recent effort to improve efficiency of the electricity market and stability of the power system. The(More)
A single triaxial accelerometer has the ability to collect a large amount of continuous gait data to quantitatively assess the control of gait. Unfortunately, there is limited information on the validity of gait variability and fractal dynamics obtained from this device. The purpose of this study was to test the concurrent validity of the variability and(More)
