Primary cervical dystonia is characterized by abnormal, involuntary, and sustained contractions of cervical muscles. Current ways of treatment focus on alleviating symptomatic muscle activity. Besides pharmacological treatment, in severe cases patients may receive neuromodulative intervention such as deep brain stimulation. However, these (highly invasive)(More)
Percutaneous stimulation of the auricular branch of the vagus nerve (pVNS) by miniaturized needle electrodes in the auricle gained importance as a treatment for acute and chronic pain. The objective is to establish a realistic numerical model of pVNS and investigate the effects of stimulation waveform, electrodes’ depth, and electrodes’ position on nerve(More)
Chronic incurable wounds comprise a severe problem in diabetics. Their healing is impaired by chronically imbalanced sympathovagal activity of the autonomous nervous system, leading to adverse immune response and reduced microcirculation in the periphery. A targeted modulation of the vagal activity can be reached by percutaneous electrical stimulation of(More)
A centralized framework for management of hybrid biosignals is proposed in order to design experimental studies, store hybrid biosignals and the associated metadata, view, validate, synchronize, and evaluate all data in a flexible and obvious way. Different studies performed at different times with different subjects, physiological maneuvers, applied(More)
OBJECTIVE This study investigated sensitivity and false detection rate of a multimodal automatic seizure detection algorithm and the applicability to reduced electrode montages for long-term seizure documentation in epilepsy patients. METHODS An automatic seizure detection algorithm based on EEG, EMG, and ECG signals was developed. EEG/ECG recordings of(More)

Chronic diseases such as diabetes mellitus are usually associated with a dysregulation of autonomic state, i.e., an imbalanced sympathovagal activity. A reduced vagal tone promotes autonomic neuropathy, impaired microcirculatory perfusion and upregulated pro-inflammatory pathways. In case of peripheral tissue trauma this may lead to chronic foot(More)
