A solution is proposed to the estimation of upper-limb orientation using miniature accelerometers and gyroscopes. This type of measurement device has many different possible applications, ranging from clinical use with patients presenting a number of conditions such as upper motor neuron syndrome and pathologies that give rise to loss of dexterity, to(More)
This paper addresses a state-space approach to dynamically substructured systems and associated controller design. Dynamic substructuring enables full-size, critical components to be physically tested, whilst the remaining parts are simulated in real-time. The feedback of dynamic constraints and synchronization of variables must be done at the(More)
This paper reports on work carried out to date, and future directions for, a project that intends to measure and control tremor in individuals with multiple sclerosis (MS). The project will use computer modelling to simulate the movements involved in upper limb intention tremor, as exhibited by individuals with MS. The models will be incorporated into a(More)
Clinical scales based on visual observation are routinely used to assess pathological tremors, informing diagnoses and treatment selection. Because these scales incorporate elements that are subjective and limited in accuracy, sensor-based measurements of tremor are increasingly being considered as a means of improving on current practice. The translational(More)
A parallel robot based on the Stewart platform is being developed to simulate jaw motion and investigate its effect on jaw function to test the wearing away of dental components such as individual teeth, crowns, bridges, full set of dentures, and implant-supported overdentures by controlling chewing motion. The current paper only describes the comparison(More)
