Our long-term goal is to formulate and assess functional methodologies to enhance recovery of locomotor function in human subjects after incomplete Spinal Cord Contusion Injury (iSCI). This methodology could consist of locomotor training by active treadmill walking. Here, we present kinematic analysis of limb movements in rats with iSCI that have undergone(More)
The MIT Space Systems Laboratory is developing the SPHERES formation flying testbed for operation on a 2-D laboratory platform, the KC-135, and the International Space Station. The hardware consists of three 23-centimeter diameter, three-kilogram satellites, or " spheres, " which can control their relative orientations. Each sphere consists of all the(More)
BACKGROUND Premature infants are at increased risk for metabolic bone disease, with resulting delayed bone growth, osteopenia, and rickets. METHOD A systematic review of the best available evidence to answer a series of questions regarding neonatal patients at risk of metabolic bone disease receiving parenteral or enteral nutrition was undertaken and(More)
To reduce mission cost and improve spacecraft performance, the National Aeronautics and Space Administration and the United States military are considering the use of distributed spacecraft architectures in several future missions. Precise relative control of separated spacecraft position and attitude is an enabling technology for many science and defense(More)
