Braided pneumatic artificial muscles, and in particular the better known type with a double helical braid usually called the McKibben muscle, seem to be at present the best means for motorizing robot-arms with artificial muscles. Their ability to develop high maximum force associated with lightness and a compact cylindrical shape, as well as their(More)
The authors report an interesting case with a ruptured internal carotid artery aneurysm that presented as a sellar haematoma mimicking radiologically a pituitary adenoma, and clinically a pituitary apoplexy. A 53-year-old woman presented with a 2-week history of episodic severe headache and vomiting associated, 3 days prior to admission, with left(More)
Temperature and Fermi energy dependent exciton eigen-energies of monolayer molybdenum disulfide (MoS 2) are calculated using an atomistic model. These exciton eigen-energies are used as the resonance frequencies of a hybrid Lorentz-Drude-Gaussian model, in which oscillation strengths and damping coefficients are obtained from the experimental results for(More)
BACKGROUND The infection of the external ventricular drainage (EDV) remains the main morbidity and mortality associated with this procedure, in the setting of the treatment of hydrocephalus and its complications, leading to excess of hospitalization with annual economic burden. METHODS. In this 3-year retrospective study we selected and reviewed the records(More)
Aim of this study was to determine the relationship between the electrically evoked whole nerve action potential (EAP) and T- and C-level for subjects using the Nucleus 24 cochlear implant system. EAP thresholds were measured using the Neural Response Telemetry system of the Nucleus 24 device. Twelve Nucleus 24 cochlear implant users took part in this(More)
